Senior Adult Ministry

For many adults, reaching the senior years means stepping away from the pressures and stress of hectic schedules. However, God has not designed us to stop going or personally growing. Adults can and should continue to serve and learn. Senior adults provide experience and wisdom to the ministry at First Baptist Church. Our adults have discovered the blessings of investing their energy and availability into serving God and caring for one another. We want to invite you to come join us as we journey with Jesus. We have a place for you! JOY! Lee Sanders, Associate Pastor
