OWLS – Ministry to Seniors

OWLS (Older Wise Loving Saints)

Organized by Martin Kolczyk

The ministry to our seniors is called OWLS – Older Wiser Loving Saints.  We want to serve and minister to our seniors, and as they have so much to offer, we want to give opportunity to them to minister to the rest of our congregation with coaching, discipleship, serving, pass on wisdom from experience and putting into practice about what the Bible taught them.

Anybody the age of 55 and older is welcome and we meet once a month with different activities.
