Senior Adults

The goals for Senior Adult Ministry at First Baptist Church are: to create an awareness of the presence and potential of Senior Adults, better understand the aging process, assure abundant life for our Senior Adults, improve the quality of life of our Senior Adults, and to provide opportunities to allow our Senior Adults to participate in life as long as they live.

We believe that there is a purpose in all of life. It is our belief that the Bible does not teach that a person should retire from life. Although many Senior Adults do retire from public work, we believe that God has a lot invested in our Spiritual Maturity and expects us to continue to serve Him with the Spiritual Gifts and Talents He has given us.

The goal of our Senior Adult Ministry is to insure that every Senior Adult has a place of ministry and service as long as they live. We believe that regardless of our limitations: physically, financially, or emotionally, our Senior Adults can and should participate in activities that are designed for service for the Lord.

We provide activities designed for:
•Spiritual Enrichment
•Social Interaction
•Learning Opportunities
•Provide Fellowship
•Special Services
•Meaningful Service Opportunities
•Provide Resources Designed For Senior Adult Needs

We get together for special events, such as speaker programs, covered dish lunches, and trips. These activities are designed to allow our senior adults to participate and to invite friends and relatives to join them in fun events that they can enjoy. The primary purpose for these activities is to allow our senior adults the opportunity to get to know each other better and to build lasting, caring relationships with other people with the same interest that they have. Once they get to know and care about each other, they provide support for each other and minister to each other as the need arises.

On most occasions we have a devotion and prayer time when we can share needs and concerns with each other. We do everything we can so our senior adults feel safe and are provided whatever physical assistance is needed to participate in any of our activities.

 On Tuesday's during the small group semester we have a Bible study at 10:30am where we share together our prayer concerns and spend time in prayer and then study God’s Word together. Our study is usually a Biblical systematic study of a particular topic.

Our senior adults do many things to reach out to each other and to others in our community. They visit in homes, hospitals, nursing homes. They write cards and notes to shut-ins and even call and read the Bible over the phone to those who need assistance. They are a vital part of our prayer chain that shares prayer needs in times of crisis. When someone is hurting, our senior adults are lifting them up to the Lord in prayer.
