Seniors: Vital, Active Christian Adults

Almost fifty percent of our population is 55 and older creating a “senior surge” in our world. To enable the First Church of Christ to meet needs in our community, a senior adult ministry was formed in 1989. Our purpose is to enrich the lives of our adults spiritually, provide opportunities for service, address various needs and encourage healthy relationships. Large group activities and small interest groups offer a variety of occasions for involvement. Our ministerial staff  and leadership of First Church are available for assistance when needed.

As the interest and needs of the senior members are surveyed, activities, programs and trips are planned each month.


Visitation Ministry – monthly we team up and visit with those in our congregation that are unable to worship with us.

Care Ministry – Extenuating circumstances? Are you separated from the church because of surgery, injury, sickness. Do you need a ride? Or meals? Two phases of our Care Ministry remember and minister to those in our congregation during times when extra care is needed.

Craft Group – monthly throughout the school year, crafts are planned to encourage and lift up others in our congregation. Once in a while, we do something for ourselves.
