The Senior Adults Ministry at King's Way is designed to provide a variety of faith-based activities for interested seniors in our congregation and throughout the community. Our goal is to provide a ministry that offers life enrichment, entertainment and service opportunities for those involved. Please contact Rick Westphal for more information!
Classic Senior Wednesdays
Classic Senior Wednesdays is a program for senior adults that offers educational classes in the morning, lunch with an engaging presentation and afternoon service projects or games. Lunch reservations must be made by noon on Tuesday each week and costs $6 per person. Contact Rick Westphal or call the church office for more information!
Silver Bells practice resumes in the Fall
The Silver Bells are a senior adult bell choir that practice every week and perform at special times within the church. If you would like more info about joining, please contact the church office for more information.
In cooperation with King's Way's Care Team, the senior ministry sponsors and staffs support groups for individuals who are experiencing difficult life events. Our support groups include Grief/Share for individuals who are grieving the loss of a loved one, Caring and Sharing for those who are caregivers for someone in their home, and Grand-parenting for people who have primary or significant responsibility for their grandchildren. All of King's Way's support groups are open to anyone in the area and all persons who have encountered with these issues are encouraged to take part.
The Senior Adult Ministry includes periodic day trips to places and events of interest in Springfield and the surrounding area. In 2016 our outings included a production at MSU's nationally acclaimed Tent Theatre, a Springfield Cardinals ballgame (we won!), a tour of the Springfield Art Museum, and a trip to Branson to see "Moses" performed at the Sound and Light Theatre. The upcoming year will feature a repeat of some of those activities plus new options. Among the additions will be a trip to the museum in Bentonville, Arkansas, and some star-gazing at the MSU observatory
