Senior Adult Ministries


The PrimeTimers are a group of men and women, 55 and older, who want to actively use their gifts and talents to minister within the church as well as outside the church community. The goal is for members to exort and encourage those whom they minister to, and as a result, grow in their own faith.

The PrimeTimer Planning Team organizes times for socializing, arranges for travel to local places of interest and plans an annual trip to the Grace Brethren Fellowship "North of 55" event in New Holland, PA.  

JOY Fellowship

JOY Fellowship is a ministry to the retired in the community that meets monthly (April through October) at MGBC in the Fellowship Hall. At each meeting, lunch is served and entertainment is provided. The meetings start at 11:30 AM and typically last an hour and a half. The goal of JOY Fellowship is to help bring joy to those in attendance, by encouraging them in Jesus through His Word , as well as by providing time for healthy conversation and fellowship. 

Anyone interested in attending JOY Fellowship should call the church office to make a reservation. Age is not a requirement, but interest in fellowship and developing relationships is! The meetings begin on the fourth Thursday in April and continue each month ending on the fourth Thursday in October. 

If you desire additional information about either of these ministries, please call the church office at 814-793-2513 or email
