Older Adult Ministries
Coordinators: Lillie Ballard & Darlene Nunn
I’m a SENIOR, this I know, for my body tells me so!
Aches and pains to me belong, head to toe they hurt so long!
CHORUS: Yes, ADVIL helps me; yes, GAS-X helps me!
Yes, BENGAY helps me; my doctor tells me so!
(Sing to the tune of “Jesus Loves Me”)
