55+


Serving – The 55+ Group assists the pastoral staff with Hospital Worship Services, the annual Harvest Worship Event held each fall for those living in Community Care facilities, serving through labor and ministry around the church, assisting with hospitality at funerals and serving through the support of missionaries locally and around the world


Worship – The 55+ Group facilitates our monthly Oasis Worship Service held on the last Sunday of each month at 6:30 pm


Fellowship – The 55+ Group hosts a Saturday Coffee Time at 10:00 am as well as regular monthly events and outings


The vision is to expand on the strengths of our current ministry by creating effective community partnerships and strategic events/programs to reach the 16,000 people in Chilliwack 50 years of age and older who do not yet know Jesus Christ. In particular, we want to create effective ministry to and with the ‘boomer’ generation who are now moving into retirement and find creative ways to build effective relationships that will make a lasting difference in their lives.
