Senior Life Ministry
University Park United Methodist Church has over five hundred members 65 years old or older. Ministry to them is vital both to the well-being of the church and the spiritual development of each member. The vision for this ministry is being designed to capture and create opportunities for their collective wisdom, knowledge and education for the advance of God’s work here at the church and within the community.
A message from the director
My current key word is ---PREPARE!
I am preparing to watch how the 5 Rock program, that was outlined Sunday, September 30th will play out and make a difference in our church. Much work has been put into these plans. Over 90 people have studied our church and its needs and are now prepared to implement their findings both for now and the future.
I am also preparing for the Christmas holiday. I love the music, the colors, the sights and sounds and am grateful beyond words for the reasons for these special occasions.
Lastly, I am preparing BIG TIME for our Conference EQUIP in January. As of today we can tell you that our speakers are all in place, our entertainment is ready and the steering committee is working on a daily basis inviting participants. The North Texas Conference, with the help of Matt Jacobs, is spreading the word throughout the country, our people are calling District Superintendents and local churches, and Keith is contacting the Bishops; so the word is out. Our goal is to have over 200 people here for the three days. All of this is PREPARATION!
Thanks to each of you who are a part of the planning and preparation for this event. You have been terrific! And are appreciated!
