Your life experience and wisdom are valued at Calvary Church, and there are lots of events and activities to keep senior adults (65+) engaged with each other and other generations.

Senior Adult Events

Valentine’s Party

Celebrate God’s love for us and for each other at this Valentine’s-themed party. Gather with other senior adults to play games, enjoy good food, and do a service project—write encouraging Valentine’s cards for our homebound senior adults. Light appetizers and sweets will be served throughout the evening. Sign up at the Welcome Center or call the Church Office at 651.487.2855. Cost $5, pay at the door.

Sunday, February 9 / 4-6pm
Roseville Campus / Café

Senior Adult Lunch

On the second Thursday of each month, join other seniors for a special speaker or entertainment, and a delightful lunch. These lunches are held all year long, with no break during summer! Current dates and topic always posted below. Buses pick up at EagleCrest and Scandia Shores—contact Ralph Gustafson (below) for more info.

Entertainment at the February lunch is your favorite—Charles Kemper! He’s bringing along a friend, trumpet player Joel Lehman, and the two will regale you with a selection of songs in a variety of styles.

Thursday, February 13 / 12-2pm
Roseville Campus / Atrium

Cost $7, pay at the door. RSVP by signing up at the Welcome Center or calling the Church Office at 651.487.2855 by Monday, February 10.

Slipper Formal

Wear your finest attire and your fluffiest footwear for a (sorta) formal banquet with Calvary’s Jr. and Sr. High students. This intergenerational event gives you a way to connect with our youth. RSVP to the Church Office at 651.487.2855.

Senior Adult Council

The five-member Senior Adult Council (SAC) was created with the goal of broadening and expanding the senior adult ministry at Calvary Church. This advisory group is a sounding board for both our Senior Adults & Volunteer Development Pastor and the senior adults in our congregation. Please feel free to contact any of these SAC members with your concerns, suggestions, or ideas for this demographic.
