Senior Adults


The Senior Adult Ministry at Highland is focused on encouraging mature people to continue fervently serving the Lord. They know that God is not finished with them, so they passionately seek Him, and share Him with others. Senior adults are a strategic part of the Body of Christ. Their wisdom and faithfulness inspire and motivate other generations of worshippers. Many seniors are intentionally making disciples, some are involved in prayer groups, and many others serve in various capacities. Highland loves our Senior Adults and their love for Jesus!

Get Involved


The Sermon on the Mount Discipleship Study meets on Tuesdays, at 6:30pm, for Senior and Young Adults together during the school year. This challenging, intergenerational study also provides trusted relationships as we share and pray together in small groups. We meet weekly in the Chapel for teaching, and then break into groups. We are studying Matthew 6 now, and will begin Matthew 7 on Oct. 3. We'll take a break after Nov. 14 until Jan. 9.  We will complete Matt. 7 on January 23, 2024. For information or to register, email

Monthly Events

Game Days

On a regular basis, Senior Adults meet for games and a meal of sandwiches or just snacks and desserts. All are welcome! While playing games, we have great conversations, and often pray for critical issues. It’s a wonderful opportunity to build friendships. 

The next time we meet will be Thursday, Sept. 28, at 2pm.  Join us in the Wellness Center, multi purpose room B to play Bingo. 

On October 26, we'll play Pokeno together at 2pm in the Wellness Center.

Crafts with Patti

Patti Blake leads us in crafts, with the intention of blessing us and reaching our neighbors who want to join us. Our next craft event is not scheduled, but you can email Patti for information at

Naomi Fellowship

Our Naomi Fellowship is a monthly dinner program for our widows and widowers. Each meal is catered and valued at $11. The Naomis pay $4 each, and the church pays the balance as a blessing to them. The programs are inspirational, fun, and usually musical. Meeting together monthly from May through November gives us good opportunities to connect with one another. We meet in the Fellowship Hall from 5-6:30pm. Reservations are required and can be made with Mary Ramos at (956) 206-3285 or with Janet at

Our next Naomi Fellowship will be Oct. 17, 2023.  We will pack Operation Christmas Child shoeboxes together.

Ways to Serve

We are always in need of people who would like to serve on our senior adult ministry team. Contact Janet Ross for more information.

Nursing Home Ministries

We lead a monthly hymn-sing and devotions for Stoney Brook of Hewitt - Memory Care.  Another ministry with music and Bible teaching takes place at Royal Manor in Hewitt two Sundays a month. We also meet at Waco Healthcare twice a month on Thursday mornings. And we provide a service for Lakeshore Estates one-two Sundays a month at 10am. If you are interested in these areas of ministry, contact Janet Ross.

We can visit nursing homes and assisted living homes quite freely. Highland has 18 people in eight facilities. If you would like to visit, pray with residents, take snacks and Christian reading materials, that would be wonderful! Contact Janet for a list of residents.

Meal Ministry Team

When one of our Senior Adults is ill, has had surgery, or transitioned to Heaven, the Adult Bible Fellowships (ABFs) and Connection Groups (CGs) usually provide meals. If the person was not in an ABF or CG, the request for food goes to the Meal Ministry Team for a meal train or a meal following a funeral. If you would like to cook or bake for those in need, contact Janet Ross.

Helps Team

Kathy Hunter oversees our Helps Team and has a list of people who are willing to drive others to the doctor, rehab, or stores. She also has people who are willing to do repair work or yard work. If you need help or are willing to offer your services to those in need, you can email Kathy ( )

Highlanders who can serve our widows and senior adults

Patti Blake keeps a list of who can do what for senior needs - odd jobs, repairs, household or yard chores. If you are willing to help, please give Patti your name and what you can do. Call her at the Highland office at 254-754-0335.


Watch & Pray is an intercessory prayer gathering that meets on Wednesdays at 4-5:15pm. We pray for Highland concerns, Waco, the USA, Israel, missions, the persecuted church, and other nations. Our desire is to be part of what God is doing - and we do that best through prayer. Join us in the Cornerstone Room of the Wellness Center as we agree together for God's will to be done on earth as it is in Heaven. All ages are welcome.

"If we understood the potential power of our prayers, we would be on our knees a hundred times a day asking HIm for things that would turn the world upside down."  Brother Andrew of Open Doors

"Prayer is the portal that brings the power of heaven down to earth.  It is kryptonite to the enemy and to all his ploys against us." Priscilla Shirer

Matt. 18:19 says, "I say to you that if two of you agree on earth concerning anything that they ask, it will be done for them by My Father in Heaven."

"The weapons of our warfare are not carnal but mighty in God for pulling down strongholds..." (2 Cor. 10:4)
