S.A.L.T., Senior Adults Living Triumphant, is the new senior adults ministry at The Gate Church. As a multi-generational church, we make every effort to build a bridge from one generation to the next.
Our senior adults contribute greatly to the life of our church and community. Just as salt is an essential nutrient in the human body, so are senior adults to the body of Christ. S.A.L.T offers a variety of avenues for ministry and community such as special times of Bible study, fellowship, travel, and continuing education.
There is no point in time when we stop growing in our relationship with the Lord. Our activities give “more mature” members the opportunity for Christian fellowship along with a fulfilling life as we continue to serve the Lord.
Our desire is to meet the spiritual and social needs of our senior adults while bringing each of us closer to God and sharing the Gospel through our lives and in service.
"He shall be like a tree planted by the rivers of water that brings forth much fruit" (Psalm 1:3).
“Let us go forward with perseverance the race marked out for us. Let us fix our eyes on Jesus the author and perfector of our faith.” - Hebrews 12: 1-2
