Seasoned Saints is an exciting ministry to people ages 50 and older. It is one of the most happening groups in our church. Monthly get-togethers might include a potluck, concert, table games, trip to an area attraction (Pella Tulip Festival, Covered Bridges, etc.), or a local restaurant. The highlight of the year is the annual fall trip to Branson, MO. Whatever the event, you can be sure that it will include fun, fellowship and food! This is also our premier prayer warrior group! When we need prayer, these are the people we call!

Seasoned Saints is not active during the Summer Quarter. Check back in the Fall for Seasoned Saints events!
