Ministry Overview

"You are the light of the world. A city set on a hill cannot be hidden." Matthew 5:14 ESV


As a vibrant and vital part of who we are as a church, we encourage our seniors never to cease in seeking God’s will. Our hope is that through the Senior Adult Ministry you will live a life enriched by God and leave a spiritual legacy for generations to come. Through regular worship, prayer, and fellowship opportunities, you will grow deeper in your personal walk with the Lord and come alongside those seeking to connect to Jesus and one another. 

Classic Worship

For folks who are blessed when they love, laugh, and learn together! Join us as we fellowship, worship together in hymn singing, and receive great instruction from seasoned Bible teachers. Most of the participants are senior adults, but this experience is open to ALL ages.

Wednesdays • 1:00 p.m. • Elizabethtown Campus
Thursdays • 10:00 a.m. • Chapel in the Woods Campus
Thursdays • 1:00 p.m. • Indiana Campus

Next Chapter

Next Chapter is a thriving group for women to gather together once a month for fellowship, devotion, and prayer, and to support local mission projects. Our hope is that, with regular gatherings, you will begin to create a community of long-lasting friendships with other women who are living on mission for Jesus Christ! Next Chapter meets on the first Friday of each month at 10:00 a.m. at our Blankenbaker Campus.

Widows Groups

The Widows Groups at Southeast are a very simple way to connect with other women who have lost their spouse. With more than 800 widows at our church, our hope is that each woman will be loved and cared for in a small-group setting. We have witnessed the fruit of women coming together, sharing their stories, and celebrating with one another as we continue to move forward. If you are seeking deep friendship and support, we hope you will contact us and allow us to connect you with a group that best fits your schedule. Groups meet at various times and locations throughout our community each month!
