PEP (People Enjoying People)
Those who are 55+ at Our Savior’s meet monthly to enjoy each other’s company while learning, visiting new places, or sharing together over coffee and fellowship.
Our purpose is to encourage one another and to uphold each other in our relationship to Christ and others.
PEP is people who enjoy being together.
PEP (People Enjoying Purpose)
The “heart-beat” of PEP is in serving others. We have discovered a variety of ways of loving and caring for others who need our presence and service. Persons who are Seniors at Our Savior’s have been at the center of many outreach programs within and outside of our church.
Quilters, knitters of prayer shawls, home meal providers, kitchen workers, custodial helpers, and many other ministries at Our Savior’s are led by or helped with Seniors.
Feed My Starving Children, Open Hands Ministry, visitation, transportation and other caring ministries are led by or enhanced by Senior participation.
PEP is people who enjoy making a difference together.
We know that as Seniors, God has blessed us with time, talents, resources and experience. Please consider joining with us in this spirited group.
