Who are the Senior Saints?
The Senior Saints are an energetic group of senior adults who present two seasons of programs each year.Each summer season features a new program of music and narration featuring favorite songs of past decades presented to retirement homes, senior fellowships, civic organizations and churches. The Saints start preparing their program when the "snow birds" return to the Midwest in the spring. They sing from July through September presenting about 24 concerts and taking a motor-coach tour where they minister through their program, fellowship with one another, and enjoy special events along the way. The 2012 version of Senior Saints has 77 members from 23 churches.
Another ministry of Senior Saints takes place each March. The Saints present the events of the 1940s from the post-depression years through WWII and the ensuing victory through narration, music, the sharing of personal experiences, and memorabilia. The living history lesson is presented to area 11th grade high school students who are studying WWII. The students have an opportunity to hear history from the people who lived it.
The Senior Saints are available for concerts. There is no cost. The only requirements are a piano,two microphones, and enough chairs to seat all of the Saints. The program lasts one hour. The Senior Saints are directed by Marsha Wright, and are sponsored by the Grabill Missionary Church. She can be contacted at 260 627-3678 X307 or at MWright@grabillmissionary.org.
