FiftyPlus Chapel is a special time for us to connect with each other in a variety of ways. It is the goal of chapel ministry to build relationships with others spiritually, socially, and intellectually. Each chapel is planned with these needs in mind. Each month we have different speakers. Some include biblical messages, others speak on various informational interests; personal faith stories are shared, mission challenges are issued, and we are encouraged to commit to serve and love one another.
Dr. Norm Smith coordinates the music. We have an opportunity each month to sing hymns, enjoy special instrumental and vocal music, and enjoy a traditional worship experience. A very special part of our worship is praying around the table for others from the list of special prayer requests.
Luncheons are organized around the theme of the chapel and serve as a great way to connect with others. Bringing food to share is encouraged, however the main purpose is for fellowship, encouraging and loving one another.
Join us on the third Thursday of each month and enrich your life with the joy of being with others in the FiftyPlus ministry. -by Marcia Plaxton
I love attending church, so participating in FiftyPlus Chapel is an added bonus. I enjoy being with God’s people, hearing God’s Word and singing hymns that we have sung over the years. We actually get to hold a real hymnal while we lift our voices together, led by Norm.
We look forward to being up close and personal with and getting to know special speakers. We have met our own church staff members and missionaries who have been serving full time, as well as our own short-term missionaries. Paul has arranged for many others who will bring us their ministry experiences.
And what would a gathering of seniors adults be without good food and a great time of socializing? Marcia always plans a themed potluck which we enjoy, seated around tables that have been so beautifully decorated with fresh flowers. I look forward each month to being a part of FiftyPlus Chapel.
