senior ministries

Springfield First has a very active Senior Ministry. We have regular gatherings for fellowship, Bible studies, Sunday morning classes, quilting, games, and trips! Our seniors are very active in volunteerism in many areas of our church: serving as ushers, greeters, and office helpers; assisting with mailings; serving at the Welcome Center; helping in KidLife; joining prayer teams; and in active ministry to our homebound friends in care facilities. We also participate in ministering at the Asbury Children's Supper Hour, Kumler Neighborhood Ministries, the Midwest Mission Distribution Center, and hospice care.
