REACHING & SERVING ONE PERSON AT A TIME!
"There are two kinds of people in the world; those who are 50+ and those who are going to be." says Pastor Chuck Swindoll. We are in the midst of one of the most earth shaking demographic movements in the history of America. Every 8 seconds someone turns 50 and every day 5,000 people turn 65. Our culture is facing both the challenges AND opportunities of an aging population.
