Seniors ministry at Bethel encourages faith, fellowship and fun through a variety of events. Every volunteer and participant is valued as an individual, created by God.
Cornerstone Seniors meet the second Wednesday of each month. An average of 100 seniors ranging in age 55 plus enjoy fellowship over a full noon dinner with a program afterwards. Presentations range from speakers on issues relevant for seniors today to a variety of musical guests. Cornerstone provides an opportunity for seniors in our church to share the love of Christ through outreach to other seniors in our community and our city.
The Retirees Breakfast is an informal gathering that takes place from September to June, excluding December, on the last Friday of each month from 8:30-10:00am. The economical, restaurant style breakfast provides another opportunity for seniors to experience Christ’s love through this community outreach. A team of dedicated volunteers make this monthly event possible.
Seniors ministry is lead by Don Hoskins. Don is passionate about sharing his faith in the community through Seniors ministry and pastoral care. Don is an ardent reader who loves to learn and mentor others. He is a fan of the Montreal Canadiens, Coke Zero and cheesecake.
LEGACY Linking Generations, Encouraging, Gracious, Admirable, Committed, Young at Heart
This is a group of retired Senior Ladies whose goals are to minister for the Lord to those in our communities in any way possible.
Legacy meets on the 1st and 3rd Wednesday of each month from 1-3pm. Presentations range from creating centrepieces, making sandwiches for the community kids that comes to the Bethel kids program on Wednesday nights, and handing out welcome gift bags in the community. We enjoy music and wonderful worship and much more, but the bible study each week is the heartbeat of this ministry. There is always fun and fellowship with light refreshments at the end. We average between 25-35 ladies each week.
“We Serve with excellence which reflects the greatness of God. We believe big and start where we are. “We embrace this as it is part of the core value of our church.
Our desire is that everyone we come in contact with will see Jesus in us and wants to know him personally.
LEGACY is led by Stella Rouble.
