The population of older adults – those age 50 or older – continues to grow.  As these numbers grow, we continue to explore ways to engage this group in ministry in our local churches and districts.  The Holston Conference Older Adult Ministries welcomes persons who are seeking information on how to organize for program and work with persons aged 55 and older in their congregations and communities.  Likewise, t is important that we seek more interesting methods of reaching those who are becoming home-bound. What joyous times are ahead of us as we grow in our willingness to provide innovative ways to provide opportunities for our people to know God better and to serve God to their fullest.
