Encouragers Senior Ministry
"With a long life I will satisfy him, and let him see My salvation."
Our seniors are energetic, full of life and anything but retired! We are active and on the go. We have lived through various experiences and have so much to offer. We sponsor many activities that are not just for seniors! We reach out to our church and to our community.
The Encouragers Senior Ministry is a place of friendship, fun, and belonging. Our desire is to share Christ and to reach out to the Coulee Region, to encourage others, to grow in our own relationship with Christ, and to fellowship. There are several options to get plugged in, to serve, and to fellowship.
Sunday Morning Class
Join with other seniors in lower level of the white house at 9:45 a.m. on Sunday.
Breakfast and Pot Blessings
The Encouragers gather together for fellowship the fourth Thursday of each month for either breakfast at a local restaurant or for a pot-blessing lunch at the church. Locations and times are announced in the weekly bulletin.
All are welcome from around the Coulee Region to gather at Bethany to sing favorite hymns and choruses. Singspiration usually meets every 5th Sunday of the month but watch the bulletin for dates and times.
The Encouragers host special events throughout the year for all to participate in...
- Summer Picnic: Each summer there is a picnic with food and fellowship at one of our church members' cabin. Watch bulletin for details.
- Christmas Party: Each holiday season we come together for dinner, Christmas carols, a gift exchange, and fellowship. Information will be posted in the church bulletin.
If you enjoy concerts, plays, or musicals there are so many opportunities within a drivable distance of which the Encouragers take advantage of. Transportation is usually provided by van or bus. Watch the weekly bulletin for information on upcoming trips.
Nursing Home Ministry
Four to five times a year, the Encouragers visit nursing homes in our community to bring joy and encouragement and to share God's love through music and His Word.
