Senior Adults

One of the unique characteristics of Christ Church is the diversity of generations. We are thankful for the numerous members who have faithfully served the church for 25-55 years. We honor and empower each senior adult as he or she continues to invest in the Kingdom and Christ Church.

Drivers Needed

  • Do you have a driving desire to help people?

  • Christ Church is looking for 10 volunteer drivers to launch this program.

  • If you love to drive and have some spare time on your hands, this may be the perfect way for you to serve senior adults who can no longer get behind the wheel. 

  • You can be a lifeline to help older adults stay connected to their church, families, friends and activities that bring meaning to their lives—and to yours!

  • Rides are mostly scheduled in advance, and drivers choose their own schedules.

  • Want to be a driver? Contact Chris Carter, 261-2113.
