Senior Adult Ministry
Senior Adult Leadership Team {S.A.L.T.}

The mission of the Senior Adult Leadership Team within the context of the vision and mission of Christ United is to reach out to guide, equip, nurture and encourage Senior Adults of Christ United and our community. While persons who have reached the age of 60+ years are the primary age for this ministry, it is the hope of S.A.L.T. that the senior adult members of our church are currently engaged in meaningful and appropriate ways within the larger context of the ministries of Christ United.  Bennie Daniels currently serves as the chairman for S.A.L.T. and Rod Borders is the pastor to Senior Adults and Congregational Care.

Extended Worship Service

Worship is the fundamental center of everything we do as Christians. The senior adults at Christ United are encouraged to make worship services the primary commitment of their spiritual journey of faith. In addition to regular Sunday worship times, S.A.L.T. in partnership with the Evangelism Ministry Team extends worship opportunities to our local nursing homes, assisted living, and independent living facilities in order to achieve the commitment of one mission, to make disciples who know, love, and serve Jesus. 

Study Groups for Senior Adults

We offer a variety of opportunities for personal growth in discipleship. Some of these opportunities include: Early Morning Men's Bible Study Groups, Exploration of Life Issues as they relate to senior adults, Seminars for Leadership Development, Sunday School, UMW, Women's Bible Study and discussion groups.  


Fellowship is vital for the spiritual well-being of disciples of all ages. Some of the on-going opportunities to grow and develop this important area includes: JOY (Just Older Youth), and Retired Men's Coffee Group.

Wellness Ministries

Mature Fitness Exercise instructed by Charlotte Craig is a stretching class for adults that meets every Monday, Wednesday, and Friday in the Youth Worship Center from 10:15 - 11:15am. The one hour program is designed for adaptable physical activity according to the participant's comfort level that includes stretching, flexibility, balance and strength training.

Opportunities to GIVE

Connection Resources

We are called and made by God to grow and become like Jesus. An essential part of our ministry is helping people grow by connecting to Jesus and committing to His way. We believe this is best done in connecting to a group of other believers who help each other on that journey. The Grow Guide is a resource to help you find those connections.

How To Connect To A Group:
1. View the Grow Guide online by clicking the link and locate the ministry leader related to your age and stage in life.
2. Contact him or her through email or phone.
3. A ministry leader will reach out to you, ask a few questions, and help connect you to a group.

We live our faith each day in the ways we serve others locally or in the world. GIVE means first that we are challenged to offer ourselves in service to God, locally and globally. Second we are challenged to offer our abilities and talents to God to build up the Body of Christ in our congregation and elsewhere. Thirdly, we are challenged to offer our financial resources to God and live generously.
