Ministry Overview

"You are the light of the world. A city set on a hill cannot be hidden." Matthew 5:14 ESV

As a vibrant and vital part of who we are as a church, we encourage our seniors never to cease in seeking God’s will. Our hope is that through the Senior Adult Ministry you will live a life enriched by God and leave a spiritual legacy for generations to come. Through regular worship, prayer, and fellowship opportunities, you will grow deeper in your personal walk with the Lord and come alongside those seeking to connect to Jesus and one another. 

Classic Worship

For folks who are blessed when they love, laugh, and learn together! Join us as we fellowship, worship together in hymn singing, and receive great instruction from seasoned Bible teachers. Most of the participants are senior adults, but this experience is open to ALL ages.

Wednesdays • 1:00 p.m. • Elizabethtown Campus
Thursdays • 10:00 a.m. • Chapel in the Woods Campus

Widows Groups

The Widows Groups at Southeast are a very simple way to connect with other women who have lost their spouse. With more than 800 widows at our church, our hope is that each woman will be loved and cared for in a small-group setting. We have witnessed the fruit of women coming together, sharing their stories, and celebrating with one another as we continue to move forward. If you are seeking deep friendship and support, we hope you will contact us and allow us to connect you with a group that best fits your schedule. Groups meet at various times and locations throughout our community each month!

Wednesday Night Group
Biblical prophecy involves more of the Bible than the book of Revelation. However, our upcoming series, 15 sessions, will rely on Revelation as the background, supplemented by several other Scriptures for clarity and commentary. The chronology and the outline of the book are provided as…the things which you have seen, and the things which are, and the things which will take place after these things (1:19). The Church age is the first area of attention. The Eternal Order is the conclusion. Eschatology is the study of last things, things to come. We will identify and focus on these major events. Application of these Scriptures will be emphasized. A Q&A period will typically end each session.

Spring 2024 // Legacy Ministry
A group of Christ followers, mostly 60 years of age and up, trying to help one another follow well and draw closer to our Lord Jesus. We also look for opportunities to assist other groups and individuals, particularly younger adults, in their quest to do the same. We believe the experience and wisdom of our members is a valuable resource we’d like to share in building the Kingdom both within and outside our church walls. We also encourage each other, pray for each other, learn together by studying God's Word, and try to have fun while doing so. We love meeting new people!
