Senior Adults

Senior adults enjoy Fellowship

Sunday morning Fellowship is also known as “Coffee Hour.” It is where great conversations begin.

Senior adults participate in a rich life of worship and fellowship at Nassau. Watch for upcoming fellowship and community events in these places:

The church helps senior adults get to and around the church. Bus service to Sunday worship runs year-round from local retirement communities. Our building, worship services, and other events are accessible and feature mobility, sound, and sight assistance.

We hope to see you soon.

Opportunities and Resources


Small Group Opportunities for Education & Fellowship

A variety of small groups are offered through the church, some short-term of 6-8 weeks fall and spring; some long term. While the content of each group will vary, all participants will have opportunities to consider questions of faith, share joys and challenges, pray for one another and encourage one another in discipleship. Contact the church office (609) 924-0103.


The Jewel Leback Deacon Library

The Jewel Leback Deacon Library, located in the room to the right of the sanctuary, is home to a variety of helpful and inspiring resources including the subjects of health and well-being, grief and bereavement, prayer and spiritual care, aging and the life cycle and much more. Anyone can check out resources and return them when completed.


Pastoral Care

Pastoral care is the way we minister to and with each other in daily living: sharing joys and sorrows, supporting in times of stress and need, offering mutual forgiveness and reconciliation. Our Lord taught us to love people in all of life’s circumstances in the church and beyond.

Pastors are available to meet with church members as they address life’s transitions which bring joy and sorrow in human life: children are born, grow up, become independent; people begin work, change jobs, retire; new chapters of life are set in motion and end of life issues are addressed.

The ministries of pastoral care support people in recognizing, accepting, and celebrating these and other such times of adjustment.
