There are millions of seniors living in the United States—what is your ministry doing to reach out to these older individuals? We have nursery classes, preschool programs, teen mission trips, and young adult fellowship opportunities that are all filled with excitement and Biblical learning. What if you brought that same level of excitement to a Christian seniors ministry? What if you put an emphasis on encouraging the Christian faith in grandpas and grandmas?
People of all ages need Christian encouragement. In the case of seniors, they especially like to feel needed and appreciated. It’s important that your ministry recognizes the value that older individuals add to the congregation. If you’re planning a grandparents day lunch, grandparents day party at school, or senior citizen recognition service, be sure to think of gift ideas for grandparents well in advance of your event.
At www.ctainc.com (Christian Tools of Affirmation), you’ll find several types of Christian gifts for grandparents. CTA offers religious gifts designed specifically for Christian grandmothers and gifts that are created with Bible verses that focus on Christian grandfathers. You can choose from Christian bookmarks, pocket coins, mini tools, or devotion books for seniors. These religious gifts for seniors also make great handouts for pastoral visits at retirement centers, nursing homes, or the homes of shut ins.
