Seniors Ministry Coordinator
Karen started her volunteering at the early age of ten years old when she was a member of a girl’s club that provided support and services to the Missouri State Girl’s Home in her hometown of Chillicothe. She has worked with different church ministries, social and civic organizations over the last fifty years in assisting with their outreach programs in the community. She worked internationally with the Salvation Army Program in Panama City,
Panama. At the Salvation Army, she taught blind and disabled senior citizens arts and crafts. She additionally prepared and provided monthly meals to them. Karen worked with the Veterans of Foreign Wars in Panama City, Panama as the coordinator of their community outreach program. She worked with the seniors who lived in a VFW group home whose needs were provided through the generous donations of the VFW and other organizations. She ensured that the seniors had food, clothing and essential items to live comfortably. Since there was no social services system in the country to help people, she solicited donations from American citizens as well as planned and developed fundraising projects. Karen developed the SOCKS (Stewards of Christ Kingdom) program with her grandson to teach him how to give back in his community by distributing socks to the homeless. Karen feels that giving back strengthens our community and shows the love of Jesus.
We will serve healthy meals and provide spiritual, social, physical, and recreational activities quarterly.
