Respect for aging is central to the Bible’s teaching. Concern for elders is found in the stories of both the Old and New Testaments, and we recognize the contribution elders have made to family and community throughout the ages. This is the theological base upon which Methodist Senior Services has built our ministry. We share this rich heritage with the Mississippi Annual Conference of the United Methodist Church, whose dreams led to our birth more than forty years ago. Decades later, we still share this commitment to hold the wisdom and experience of God’s older children in high esteem.
