“Even to your old age I am He, and to gray hairs I will carry you. I have made, and I will bear; I will carry and will save.” Isaiah 46:4
Mountain View UMC places high regard on all age groups from youngest to oldest. There are no greater celebrations than when a baby is born to the church of God and when birthdays are celebrated to honor those who have enjoyed a long lifetime and keep Christ in their hearts.
All church activities for the elderly keep in mind their interests as well as special needs regarding physical capability and transportation.
Outings, learning/ fellowship activities might include picnics, theme dinners or potlucks; tours; musical events; and, presentations on topics like scams targeting the elderly, driver awareness as we age, and home security for those living alone or with physical limitations. The church continues as a loving partner in the lifetime of its members and extends to hospital and hospice visitations along with prayers for the challenges of aging bodies and minds.
