At Christ Temple, we are committed to serving our senior adults through our ‘Golden Gems’ ministry. The mission of the ‘Golden Gems’ staff is to be an advocate for our seniors and to educate and empower the church to grasp a new vision for senior adults by:
Increasing awareness of the growing number of senior adults as this impacts the church
Encouraging a balanced and varied ministry to those aged sixty-five and over
Identifying, developing, and recommending resources
Here at Christ Temple, we celebrate the lives of the bridges that brought us over. We honor our Golden Gems in a number of ways:
Each month, we recognize the lifelong contributions of one of our senior adults by selecting the “Golden Gem of the Month.” The Golden Gem of the month is honored for their personal commitment to the Lord, and to their wisdom, service, and dedication to the past, present, and future vision and ministry of the Christ Temple Christian Life Center.
Each quarter, we have “Golden Gem Sunday,” where our Golden Gems actively participate in the service by welcoming guests, praying, reading scripture, ushering, sharing testimonies, and leading heritage songs.
In addition, our Golden Gems attend planned fellowship events and outings.
