Chera Ministry Coordinator: Patsy Clark ( God has promised, “Never will I leave you, never will I forsake you.” Chera (pronounced Ke-Ra) is the Greek word for “widowed” or “bereft.” Our mission is to reach out to those who have lost a spouse and offer the comfort which comes from God. Healing after the death of a spouse is a long-term process. It has been suggested that it can take up to two years to give ourselves time to mourn and grieve. Chera exists to offer that long-term, ongoing support. Our members contact the newly-widowed to provide support by listening and offering friendship individually as well as meeting in small groups. Twice a year, in the spring and the fall, Chera members are the guests of the Elders and Deacons to share a brunch and fellowship. We invite you to join us. The Chera Ministry is why we can say, with confidence, “The Lord is my Helper; I will not be afraid” (Hebrews 13:5b-6). Ol’ Fashioned Hymn Sing Ministry Coordinator: Maury Lehmann Come join us for a time of fun, fellowship and singing lead by Maury Lehman. The hymn sing is held quarterly in the Chapel immediately following the Sunday evening service. Information including special guests and dates can be found in the OASIS newsletter, Calvary Life magazine or by calling the Senior Adult Ministry Office at ext. 3672.
