The aging process brings its share of challenges and rewards. We recognize that God is continually at work in the lives of 55+ adults and has purpose and plans for us whether we are 9 or 99. At Huguenot Road Baptist Church, we seek to help mature adults stay connected and provide outlets for discipleship, service, fellowship, and education. Whether you are 55+ or someone interested in working with this population, we have a place for you! Don't hesitate to contact the church office if you have questions.
Our traditional senior adult ministries are focused around four main areas: discipleship, education, fellowship, and service. We remain an active part in the life of the church and the community. Many of our folks are serving daily in settings like leading Bible studies in assisted living facilities, mentoring students at a local elementary school, serving dinner to residents at Oregon Hill, and more. Our members are actively involved in Bible study on Sunday mornings as well as various times throughout the week. We also provide regular seminars on topics that are important to the aging population and their families.
The vision of this ministry is “To be a loving, compassionate, supportive group to those who have experienced the ultimate loss of a spouse by death. To be committed to minister as they work through their losses.” While not exclusively a 55+ group, the Healing Hearts holds dear the words of II Corinthians 1:3-5 in supporting one another through the loss of a spouse. This ministry remains very active incorporating the activities like periodic meetings, service projects, regular phone contact, and mutual love and support to one another. If you have experienced the loss of a spouse and would like more information, please contact the church office.
For years, Baby Boomers have defined many aspects of our culture. For this generation born between 1946 and 1964, they have used their influence to alter the work force, change elections, and change the way products are marketed. Now community groups regularly sponsor forums discussing the impact this group will have on the culture as they age. At HRBC, we seek to be proactive in addressing Baby Boomer issues from a faith perspective. We also host a regular support group for Boomers who are providing care for a parent or loved one.
