Retired and Empty Nesters

REPs Logo

 

The REP’S at First Assembly of God are a work in progress. Psalm 92: 14-15, illustrates our desire: “They will still bear fruit in old age, they will stay fresh and green, proclaiming, “The Lord is upright; he is my Rock, and there is no wickedness in him.” REP’S ministry is planned with these goals in mind. All REP’S are invited to join us as we journey with Christ. Each one’s relationship with the Lord will be strengthened. Each one’s life will never be the same.
