FBC Has An Active Senior Adults Ministry
Saints Alive luncheon group meets on the third Wednesday of each month (except June, July & August) at noon for a lunch and learn program. The menu varies each month. Anyone 50 and older is welcome to join us for a delicious meal, great fellowship and a good opportunity to connect with others.
In addition to the monthly fellowship, the Saints Alive group has special activities each year during the month of May. May is designated Senior Adult Month and activities in church center on them.
The first week of May our seniors have a Senior Adult Beach Retreat held at Springmaid Beach (south of Myrtle Beach SC.) They have Bible study, the opportunity to relax, read, shop ‘til you drop, play games and eat lots of great food!
In addition to the beach retreat, a Senior Adult Sunday is observed with leadership provided by them. A “Breakfast in the Park” is held (lower level of Community Bldg.) where breakfast is served outdoors, a Mystery Trip is announced to a unknown destination. Also, a day is set aside where the emphasis is on our church shut-ins who are no longer able to attend church regularly, with visits being made to them.
Each December, there is a Senior Adult Christmas Banquet held in the Fellowship Hall with a catered meal and special Christmas Entertainment.
One day trips are often planned and are publicized through the church newsletter.
Our group is quite active and open to all seniors who wish to share fellowship, fun and excitement with others. The above activities provide opportunities for both personal enjoyment and spiritual fulfillment for our senior adults.
