Senior Adults

In response to COVID-19, the physical building is closed, but the ministries of Grace are still happening! We invite you to join Grace for online worship at 9:45am Sunday mornings along with many other “virtual” gatherings throughout the week. Please explore the website, visit the Grace Facebook page, or contact the office for more information. Find additional info on Staying Connected here.

Grace’s Senior Adults have been keeping in touch virtually through-out the pandemic. Take a look at the events and videos below. All are welcome to join in! For more info, please contact the church office @ office@umcgrace.org or 703-361-7800.

Want to learn more about Senior Adult at Grace outside of the pandemic? Take a look below:

Grace’s Senior Adult Ministries seek to address the spiritual, social and educational needs of adults in our church and community, specifically those who are 55 years and older. Our goal is to reach long-time members of the Grace community as well as newcomers to the Manassas area, welcoming all into faith and fellowship. Before COVID-19, we enjoyed monthly fellowship meals, interacted regularly with children from the Grace Children’s Learning Center and met with teams from our United Methodist Youth group. All senior adults are welcome and invited to join us! We hope to resume these activities when it is safe to re-convene.

Faith and Fellowship Opportunities:

  • Sunday School for Adults
  • Wednesday Bible Study
  • Empowered in Living – Come for a one hour exercise class where you choose the pace and intensity level. Exercises can be done standing or sitting.
    This class meets twice a month on Thursdays, at 1pm in the Fellowship Hall (in the new building). The best place to park is the lower lot, and walk in the double doors of the new building. Look for your instructor, Sharron.
    Check the Upcoming Events page or Calendar for the next class!
