Senior Adult Ministries

Those involved with Senior Adult Ministries seek to encourage everyone 60 and over to participate in activities that foster spiritual growth and health, age-level educational pursuits, outreach, and fellowship.

Our United Methodist Women provide cards and seasonal gift bags to those in need of encouragement and love.

We provide weekly copies of the worship services on CD to our shut-in members as well as monthly communion.  Our pastor and associate/intern will also provide visitation at the hospital, extended care facility or at home.  If you know of anyone who would like a visit, call the church office at 919-929-8845 and leave a message with the name and location of someone in need of company or comfort.

 

I Think God is a Quilter
(Author Unknown)

I think God is a quilter
Who takes His needle and thread
To piece our world from nothingness
And give it form, instead.

I think God is a quilter
And everything I see
Are pieces from His careful hand
From tree to bumblebee.

I think we see God's stitches
His texture everywhere;
The velvet moss, the grainy sand,
The silky strands of hair.

I think God is a quilter;
Stitching tight and tiny rows,
Adding to my scraps and pieces,
Seaming everything He knows.

I think He cuts the patterns
From what I'd throw away.
He shows me how to use each scrap
In His redeeming way.

I think God quilts a pattern
From everything I live;
But He can only stitch the quilt
From what I choose to give.

I think God is a quilter
Stitching strength where I am weak.
Showing me that life He touches
Embraces everything I seek.

I think God is a quilter
From the patience in each thread;
Proving length of time no barrier;
Treating time a gift, instead.

I think quilts are lessons
God uses just to teach
That our pieces and our remnants
Have kaleidoscopic reach.

So, in the life I'm living
With pieces everywhere
I'll give them to the Quilter
To stitch with loving care.

I'll give them to the Quilter
Unwanted though they be
And with His work of quilting
He'll make a quilt of me.
