Senior Adults

Senior Adults

Welcome to the information page of the Senior Adult Ministry of First Baptist. We deliberately attempt to make everything we do “Christ Centered”. Our goal is to encourage and never, never let our Seniors feel unimportant or unwanted. 

Sunday is ‘Bible Study Time’ with Bible classes at 8:00 am and 10:45 am.  We have outstanding teachers that are rooted and grounded in God’s Word.  Each teacher has spent years in ‘The Book’ and filled with ‘The Spirit’.

We also have a Wednesday afternoon Bible Study and prayer time for Senior Adults.  We meet at 1:00 - 2:00 pm in room 101 of the Family Life Center. 

We have a Nursing Home Care Ministry that is very active and offers Worship services at a nearby facility each Sunday.

Our Widows Ministry is a ministry to widowed women, by widowed women.  This group is very active in monthly meetings, travel, dining out and helping care for homebound, and many other activities.  {For more information, please call the church office}.

A ministry to those hospitalized is a daily ministry of our Pastoral Staff and Lay People.

Quarterly banquets are held each year around holidays.  These events are well attended and special guest speakers and singers are enjoyed.

Our senior adults man the telephones for the entire Church each day.  Messages are routed throughout the offices by senior adult ladies.

Seniors are involved in Missions around the world.  They process used glasses, clothing, food, and cover our Mission Teams in prayer as they cover the world.

Family Life Center uses Seniors to register guests using our facilities, working in the Solid Rock Cafe’ and many other volunteer duties.

Seniors work as greeters at the main entrances each Sunday morning in all three services. 

Our seniors are also active in many other volunteer positions here, such as:

Disaster Relief
Maintenance on Church property
Serving in food services {Wed. evening dinners, funeral meals, special occasions}
Greeters at entrances and Ushers
Bible Study Leaders
Deacons
Serving in Children’s ministry
