Seniors Ministry


The "JETT SET" acronym basically espresses the purpose and activity of the ministry, Just Enjoying Time Together Shopping, Eating and Traveling. The ministry serves the senior ministry, "older" retirees- if you will, of Waldensian Presbyterian Church, although we encourage folks to invite their friends and family to share in the fun! Occasionally, when we choose a super fun outing the young folks cannot resist and join us!

Occasional van excursions are planned to interesting sites such as historic venues, performances, restaurants, and the Christmas and Spring Shows in Charlotte.

Contact the church office to get added to the newsletter list so you can join us when the mood strikes or never miss an event and come to everything. All are welcome!


On the first Thursday of each month in the church's fellowship hall we enjoy a luncheon complete with theme decorations, door prizes, and an excellent meal prepared by the church's cook. The meal cost is $5.00, collected at the door.

Birthday cards are sent to senior church members each month and the JETT SET have their own monthly newsletter. The front page is rich with colorful pictures of "JETT SETTERS" at various functions and notices of upcoming activities. The newsletter also features archived "Valdese News" tidbits of local and historic news of yesteryear comprise a large portion of the newsletter, entitled "The Jett Set Gazette." Some receive hard copies, and those with techno skill receive the newsletter via email. Numerous friends of our church are offered copies, as well, and seem to enjoy memories of the past. Join us anytime!
