Senior Saints Ministries
Senior Saints is a ministry to and of adults age 65 and up. Many of our group have faithfully served in the church from 30 up to even 50 years, and though they may have retired from their professions, they have certainly not retired from ministering. Our Senior Saints program encourages them to continue their ministry by offering regular fellowship with other senior adults and mentoring opportunities with younger generations. You will find senior saints enthusiastically serving in almost every area of the church from the nursery to outreach and counseling efforts. The senior saints are also enthusiastic about activities and travel. We enjoy local events, such as a symphony orchestra concert; weekend getaways to Chicago or Cincinnati; and extended trips to Sight and Sound, The Wilds in North Carolina, Ark Encounter, Brown County, IN, and other places of interest.

Spring Trip Scheduled for Senior Saints
An historic trip to Ohio will be the next Senior Saints trip is scheduled for May. Listen for announcements concerning the exact dates and costs. One of the sites will include the Put-in-Bay Memorial which is located on South Bass Island in Lake Erie near Sandusky. The memorial commemorates the victory over the British at the Battle of Lake Erie in the War of 1812. Oliver Hazard Perry was the notable commander and made famous the saying on his battle flag: "Don't Give Up the Ship." Upon his victory over the British, he sent a message to General William Henry Harrison that said: "We have met the enemy, and they are ours." Details of the costs, lodging, and other places of interest that we plan to see will be described on a flyer that will be available at Colonial Hills Baptist Church around Christmas time.
