What is SOAR?
SOAR, our acronym for Support, Outreach, Adventure, and Relationships, is Mt. Bethel’s ministry made up of Senior Adults. Our seniors are active, vibrant, and participate in a variety of activities. SOAR is scripturally based on Isaiah 40:31 – “But they who wait for the Lord shall renew their strength; they shall mount up with wings like eagles; they shall run and not be weary; they shall walk and not faint.”
We acknowledge that God has blessed us, and from the mountain top we can soar like eagles and appreciate God’s continued presence in this place in our life journey. He has strengthened us throughout our lives, and through the power and presence of Christ, we endeavor to live a life that glorifies God. In doing so, we experience great joy!
S – Support: Mt. Bethel provides divorce support, grief support, other specialized support groups, Stephen ministers, and counseling to assist our seniors in all stages and life events.
O – Outreach: As members of the Body of Christ extended to the world, we support various missions and organizations through out the year.
A – Adventure: SOAR on the Go! is our travel group. Look for scheduled day trips to interesting places and join us for fun, fellowship, and life-long learning.
R – Relationships: God created us for relationships and community. SOAR seeks to strengthen and grow our relationship with God, our community, and the world.
Join us, and stay connected with other active senior adults through studies, worship, and activities.
