Encore! Ministry for Active Seniors

As a vibrant, vital part of our congregation, our “seasoned citizens” are involved in just about every aspect of church life.
Encore! adults play a critical role in shaping the lives of younger generations and encouraging them to live out their faith in our Lord Jesus Christ.

Encore! adults make a difference at Crestview! We encourage you to explore the numerous opportunities available to you through the variety of ministries especially tailored for you.

If you are looking for a place to serve, ask your spiritual questions, renew your childhood faith, or enjoy senior adult fellowship, Crestview Encore! Ministries are here for you. Titus 2:1-8

Encore! Evangelism

Demonstrating God’s love and compassion, and sharing the good news of the Gospel in our community.

Share with the Lord’s people who are in need. Practice hospitality. Romans 12:13 (NIV)

Visits are made primarily to our home bound members, members in various institutions such as nursing homes, as well as recent visitors to Crestivew Baptist Church, with reports of each visit returned to the church office.

Encore! Fellowship

Sharing our faith through fellowship, food, and fun, for the Glory of our Lord.

Every day they continued to meet together in the temple courts. They broke bread in their homes and ate together with glad and sincere hearts, praising God and enjoying the favor of all the people. And the Lord added to their number daily those who were being saved. Acts 2: 46-47

Encore! Ministry

To express the love of Christ for others as in serving God.

“Each one should use whatever gift he has received to serve others, faithfully administering God’s grace in its various forms.” 1 Peter 4:10

Encore Ministry is composed of four different ministry teams.

The Bereavement Ministry Team seeks to help ease a difficult time by serving a family meal or hosting a reception when a member of our church goes to be with the Lord. Volunteers prepare and serve the food.

The Hands On Ministry lay chaplaincy group consists of individuals who have trained to serve as volunteer chaplains each week in local hospitals, nursing homes, and rehabilitation centers. They provide spiritual care and comfort to patients who are currently dealing with illness, surgery, and disability issues in their lives.

The Prayer Ministry Team seeks to be lifting up prayer needs at times by praying at home or coming to our prayer chapel. Prayer notes are available in the prayer chapel that provide information on current prayer requests. Notes are sent out every week. Prayer calls are also made which enhances this ministry.

The Homebound Ministry Team serves by ministering to the physical and spiritual needs of those unable to attend services. Volunteers provide personal visits, telephone calls and cards to maintain a loving personal connection to the church.
To obtain additional information or to participate in any of these ministries, please call the church office.
