The Joy Group is Gate City’s Senior Adult Ministry and is for those who are age 50 and over. The goal of this ministry is to meet the social and spiritual needs of our seniors. In addition to a bi-monthly senior adult men’s breakfast (ROMEO–Retired Old Men Eating Out), there are monthly activity and ministry opportunities for senior adults.
Each Wednesday morning at 10 AM, we offer a Bible study for seniors, led by our Pastor, called The Morning Lift.
The Joy Group provides opportunities not simply for fellowship but for ministry and service. On a monthly basis, teams prepare and deliver meals to the homebound. We have a monthly nursing-home ministry partnership where teams of seniors visit and sing to patients. In addition, there is a group called the Sew-N-Sews who make gift/care items for seniors with physical needs.
Senior adults are a valued part of the fellowship, ministry and service of Gate City.
