Recognizing challenges, reaching out, and having fun.
Seniors supporting seniors and seniors supporting others; Eastview’s Seniors Ministry or “Grey Owls” is all about recognizing the challenges that are unique to seniors, and creating opportunities for them to reach out and have fun.
And with all His abundant wealth through Christ Jesus, my God will supply all your needs.Philippians 4:19
The Grey Owls Ministry is excited about getting more of Eastview’s seniors together on a regular basis.
Reach out, and join in!
Building a network
Bottom line: the Grey Owls Ministry is fun for seniors.
Meeting on a monthly basis to enjoy the presentations of speakers, missionaries, musicians, and even personal stories from Grey Owls members who volunteer to share their experiences is helping Eastview’s seniors develop a caring network that is devoted to exploring the possibilities in this stage of life. All meetings include a refreshment time that enables seniors to relax and socialize.
Sometimes meetings of the Grey Owls focus on outreach, and other times it’s all about the social activity:
The Grey Owls take advantage of good weather and the outdoors with barbeques and picnics
Sharing their life experiences with and leaving a legacy for Eastview’s youth, the Grey Owls connect with the Youth Ministry in varied ways.
Every second Spring, the Grey Owls plan a road trip
Several times a year, the Grey Owls visit Eastview’s less mobile members.
