Guiding Scripture: James 1:27
“Pure and undefiled religion before our God and Father is this; to look after orphans and widows in their distress and to keep oneself unstained by the world.”
To provide a caring, loving and respectful community of support to our mature and widowed Brothers / Sisters in our church family. We strive to provide emotional, spiritual, physical support and care.
This is a two-way ministry; we are also blessed to learn from these wonderful mature Christians who have many life lessons and spiritual wisdom to offer.
Wisdom may be found in the company of the aged.
Understanding comes with longevity. Job 12:12 ISV
