On a given weekend, a hundred or so seniors around the Upstate attend Grace Church services, yet never step onto any of our campuses. They haven’t sat beside us in a service, but if you were to ask them where they attend church, they would say they go to Grace. These senior citizens are those who benefit from Senior Honor, a Grace ministry providing Sunday worship services, social events, and one-on-one relationships with assisted living communities across the Upstate.
The Bible speaks clearly about the honor and wisdom that comes with old age, and it goes further to say in James 1:27, “Religion that is pure and undefiled before God, the Father, is this: to visit widows and orphans in their affliction, and to keep oneself unstained from the world.” If honoring and caring for the senior citizens in our society is important to God, then it is important to us. Volunteers with Senior Honor are committed to caring for and supporting residents of assisted living communities with unique gifts, skills, and passion God has given them.
Individuals, families, and groups are all welcome to serve in Senior Honor, though it’s important to note that larger group opportunities may be limited depending on the community, season, and needs. Read on for more information about our partner communities and just a few of the serving opportunities with each.
