We believe if you're a senior, then you are still young at heart, and we believe your life still has value to the Kingdom of God! Psalm 92:14 says, "They shall still bear fruit in old age; They shall be fresh and flourishing," and we take that seriously.
The FOL Seniors consists of many ministries that reach out to the seniors at Fountain of Life and the surrounding communities. Check out the ministry info on this page and fill out the form at the end if you'd like to get involved! The group meets on the first Tuesday of every month to encourage each other, build relationships, have fun, and reach out to the community. Events have included regular luncheons at Fountain of Life and unique day trips (e.g. Washinton D.C., CBN in Virginia Beach, Botanical Gardens, Chrysler Museum, and more).
