Young at Heart (YAH) is a ministry of Grace Church for individuals age 55 and older.
If you are interest in fellowship with other Christians, and you would like to explore becoming involved in serving others in our community, then Young At Heart is for You. Check out our website Events calendar for our monthly fellowship happenings. Young At Heart has several windows of opportunity in which to serve:
The Grace's Heart Ministry was created to minister to those individuals who are returning home after a hospital stay, those who are unable to attend our worship services, or those who just need a visit. The trained team members minister through cards, email, letters,and visits. If you enjoy sharing your compassion and love for people, join our Heart Ministry and make a difference in people's lives.
The Hospital Visitation Ministry is designed to make sure that those individuals who are in the hospital and want visitors can be ministered to by men and women who love people through listening, caring words, and prayer. Individuals who are interested in this ministry will go through a short training time to prepare them for this wonderful ministry.
The Worship Service Ministry provides residents in an area nursing home with encouragement in their daily walk with Christ through songs and a short message. Is God calling you to be a missionary in your own back yard using your gifts of music and teaching? The Worship Service Ministry is a wonderful opportunity to bless and be blessed by sharing your love for our Lord and Savior through Worship.
GriefShare is a friendly, caring group of people who will walk alongside you through one of life's most difficult experiences-the loss of a loved one. You don't have to go through the grieving process alone. GriefShare support groups are led by trained individuals who understand what you are going through and want to help. You'll gain valuable life-tools to help you recover from your loss and look forward to rebuilding your life. The group meets weekly for approximately two hours. For more information, please contact the church office.
The I Love You Tea Cup Ministry provides a compliment and/or enhancement to the other Young At Heart ministries, for example the Hospital Visitation or the Heart ministries described above. The tea cups are created and provided free of charge for anyone to pick up and take with them when they visit with someone. If you are gifted in crafts and would like to hep design and make the tea cups, please contact the church office.
The Funeral Dinner Ministry team prepares and serves a meal at the church after the funeral of a Grace member or their immediate family. This is a time for the family and friends of the deceased individual to take a deep breath and let themselves be ministered to by the Funeral Dinner Ministry team.
