Senior Adults

Senior Adults at First Baptist value fellowship with one another. If you are 50 or older, retired or semi-retired, you are a welcomed part of our Senior Adult Ministry. At First Baptist Church, we love our seniors and work to meet their needs.  The Senior Adult Committee of the church gives guidance to the ministry.
·         Many volunteer to work in FBC's Food Closet, which is open Mondays and Thursdays from 9:30 a.m. until 11:30.
·         A number of seniors participate in the Meals on Wheels program of Columbus, delivering meals to those who are unable to prepare food for themselves.
  • Seniors also find a place to work as Sunday School teachers for adults and children and as extended care workers for babies.
  • Seniors are among our members who volunteer to visit homebound members and extended family in their homes as well as in special care facilities. The Homebound Visitation Ministry delivers literature and brings social interaction once a month.
  • In almost every mission trip of the many at FBC, seniors participate and lead.
  • Leadership by seniors is given to committees, panels, and special studies of the church.
·         Young in Heart meets on the second Thursday of each month from 12 noon to 1:30 p.m. 
A meal is served for $7 and the program is varied from music to informative speakers to entertainment. Officers lead the program, reporting on activities and mission projects. 
·         Plus Fifty is a monthly (last Thursday) supper fellowship to restaurants in neighboring towns. The suppers encourage those over 50 who are still employed to be involved in this monthly fellowship, as we leave the church at 5:30pm-after the workday ends. This is a great way to meet and bring new folks.
·         Young in Heart has a long and varied travel history, having visited every state in the union. From day trips to extended tours, current Young in Heart members have opportunities to engage in everything from strawberry picking to shopping to experiencing art and history in new and exciting venues. Mrs. Ruth Kiralfy is the trip coordinator.
