SENIOR ADULT MINISTRY
Senior adults at First Baptist church are highly valued. Their years of experience and spiritual maturity provide a deep pool of wisdom, stability and strength for our church.
Because our senior adults believe that there is no retirement plan for Christian growth, we offer several discipleship opportunities. We provide Sunday morning Bible studies for "young" seniors, "middle" seniors and "senior" seniors. We also have small groups for seniors. The monthly Forever Young Luncheons feature fellowship, discipleship, information and inspiration. Our senior adult choir, "Inspiration Singers", offers muscial opportunities for all senior men and women.
Seniors enjoy traveling and our Senior Adult Council plans several trips each year! Check below for upcoming events and registration deadlines.
Call the Church Office (252) 446-9113 for more information or to register for these events.
