FAQ's - Mature Ministies
Why do we need a special group?
The mission of Mature Ministries, complementing the overall mission of First Presbyterian Church, is to address the spiritual and social needs of the mature members of the FPC congregation and of the community. Mature Ministries provides interrelated services and programs for pastoral support and care, education and learning, fellowship and social activities, and facilitates service, mentoring, and mission outlets.
Who makes Mature Ministries happen?
The Mature Ministries Steering Committee meets regularly to consider and implement ideas for fellowship, service, mission, and fun, and to work at meeting a wide range of needs facing our members. This group also advocates for the needs and concerns of mature adults. We need your input. Are you interested in joining the planning and program for this group? Contact co-chairs Ben Helmke and Lois Jelneck (firstname.lastname@example.org) for more information or would like to join in on the organizing, visioning, implementation, and fun.
