Senior Ministries

Our active 50+ adult ministries encourage spiritual growth through programs, a wide variety of service projects and fellowship.

Events

Generations

4th Thursday, September-May, Noon 
Dining Room, Historic Sanctuary Building
Generations Potluck and Speaker Series is a group (open to all ages) that meets once a month in the FUMC dining room, except for summer months, for a gathering that includes a guest speaker and a potluck lunch! Come bring a friend and a dish to share – everyone is welcome!

Globetrekkers Lunch Group

Quarterly on a Friday
Join this group of active retired boomers for lunch as they gather to explore a new restaurant each quarter.  The restaurant will be announced in the bulletin.  With questions or to RSVPP, contact Dorothy Garrett at globetrekk3r@yahoo.com.

 

Visitation

Join our strong visitation ministry. We send volunteers to the hospital  every day of the week and do home visits by request.

The Inreach Team also organizes rides for seniors in the church who can’t get to services on their own and they try to meet the needs surfacing within the congregation. If you are interested in  being a part of this ministry or have a need we could fill, please contact the church office and leave a message for Gary (visitation).
