Forerunners is our ministry with a focus to engage all senior adults to experience Christ in community and to equip them to leave a faith legacy for generations to come.

The age of our group is around 55 and up. We are an active and committed fellowship of believers in Christ who want to continue to bring glory to God through our lives. Forerunners have a lot to share and give to those who follow. 
“Therefore, since we are surrounded by such a great cloud of witnesses, let us throw off everything that hinders and the sin that so easily entangles, and let us run with perseverance the race marked out for us. Let us fix our eyes on Jesus…”                                                                                                                 Hebrews 12:1-2

Get Involved!

In addition to monthly luncheons, our Forerunners also enjoy several day trips and travel excursions throughout the year!
