Welcome to the Senior’s Ministry
Ministries for Seniors at Lutheran Church of the Cross – Laguna Woods Campus
We have the opportunity to be located in the heart of the largest retirement area in the world. Calling this group senior's might give you the wrong impression of a bunch of older people that don't do much, but quite frankly they are a lot of fun and they are very active. And while we do have some specifically focused senior ministries most of the time they participate in everything. These people are a strong force in our church full of wisdom and knowledge. The purpose of this ministry is to encourage active participation in the faith and fellowship during these wonderful years. Here are just a few of the ministries offered at our Laguna Woods campus:
Senior Day Out: On Tuesdays, we have Senior Day Out. This event happens almost every Tuesday (check the calendar section). We start with singing your favorite hymns and praise songs along with devotions and prayer. We then eat a delicious, home-cooked meal that truly is the best deal in town. During the meal time, we will have occasional programs ranging from musical entertainment to speakers on relative topics of interest. Several times a year, we will take charter bus day trips to places of interest such as the Reagan Library, Getty Museum, Huntington Library, Lawrence Welk Theatre, etc.
Bible Studies: Other ministries for seniors include Bible study. We have several times available:
Tuesday: 6am for the early risers.
Wednesday: At 10am for those that don’t like to get out at night 6:15pm on Wednesday nights following another delicious meal in our beautiful social hall.
Music: We have wonderful opportunities to use your musical abilities. Come and sing in our choir. We practice Wednesday nights from 7-8:30pm. If you don’t sing, come join our bell choir. Practice is on Thursdays, 4:30-6pm.
Supporting our Missions: For those who like to sew, we meet at 9am on the second Saturday of each month to sew “pillow-case” dresses for children. These dresses made out of pillowcases are sent to children in impoverished countries.
All are welcome! There are more senior’s opportunities to serve others through visiting the homebound and hospitalized. Come and join in any of these ministries and make some wonderful new friends!
