Ministry for Adults aged 60+

Summit Ministries is Geyer Springs’ one-stop answer to the interests of senior adults (adults 60+). Its purpose is to address the spiritual and social concerns of senior adults and to assist them in engaging in a variety of ministries supported by the church.

Sunday Morning Sunday School

Every Sunday morning, Geyer Springs offers both large and small Bible-focused Sunday School classes in a variety of formats: men, women, singles, and couples. Although most classes focus on a particular age grouping, all ages are welcome.

Summit connections

On most Mondays of the year, seniors meet together at 10:30am for a ministry-oriented program and a prepared meal. The primary aim of this weekly gathering is to help senior adults connect with ministries available both within the church and in local organizations whose goals are compatible with those of Geyer Springs.

midweek chapel

Each Wednesday at 11:00am, senior adults gather in Sanders Hall for an hour of fellowship, singing, and hearing a message from God’s Word. Services are also streamed live on Facebook and recorded for future viewing. Visit

summit weekly newsletter

Each week, Summit Ministries emails a flyer alerting senior adults to upcoming events designed with them in mind. If you would like to be added to our weekly newsletter, please let Annette Alexander know at [email protected] or by calling the office at 501-455-3474.

Pastoral care

The Pastoral Care arm of Summit Ministries is designed with a primary focus on individuals who are homebound or shut-in. Its purpose is to help these individuals remain connected with the church’s many programs and opportunities.
