Senior Adult Ministry
Grace’s Loving Hearts Senior Adult ministry seeks to address the spiritual, educational and social needs of the “seasoned” adults in our church and community. These ministries reach out to long-timers in the Grace community and newcomers to the Manassas area to welcome all senior adults (55 and better) into a community of faith and fellowship. The group celebrates those who have been members at Grace for many years, with a special recognition of 50 Year members each summer, but we also welcome those who find themselves looking for a church home in a new place, or perhaps even for the first time. All are welcome and invited to join in!
Under the leadership of the Senior Adult Council, the Loving Hearts ministry hosts periodic study group opportunities specially geared toward older adults and monthly daytime fellowship opportunities.
Each week, Pastor Rudy Tucker leads a Bible study at the Caton Merchant assisted living home here in Manassas, and senior adults participate in and lead many of the Sunday school offerings on Sunday mornings. We also offer a weekly Bible study at Grace on Wednesdays at 10:00 am. Past topics have included Being A Methodist and Christianity and World Religions, as well as seasonal Advent and Lenten studies.
The Loving Hearts’ fellowship gatherings are a great time for everyone! With more than 50 people in regular attendance, these events are favorites in the Grace community and beyond. Whether we’re welcoming the Happy Hoofers senior women’s dance group or gathering for holiday meals together, all are welcome to join in the fun! Occasionally, the Loving Hearts groups also gather for day trips around Virginia and the Capital region, and for intergenerational mission and events.
