Persons aged 55 or more are VIPs at FBC!  A significant sector of our church membership identify themselves as "senior adults," and a healthy percentage of our ministry is directed to -- and through -- this vitally important group.

The watchword of our umbrella organization, the Senior Adult Council, has come to us from the poetry of Robert Browning: "Grow old along with me!  The best is yet to be - - the last of life, for which the first was made" (Rabbi Ben Ezra, St. I.).

Under the watchful eye of the Senior Adult Council , our older adult ministries include monthly PrimeTime activities, homebound ministry, Bereavement Team, Friend's Day, Historical Committee, day trips and more.

For more information about Senior Adult ministries, click to email Dr. Steve Pressley, or call 274-3286.

PrimeTime is so-named because this gathering for persons 50 years and older takes place on the first weekday (Monday) of the first week of each month, October-December and February-May.  A wide spectrum of activities is included: crafts, exercise classes, prayer shawl knitting, lectures and presentation subjects of general interest to senior adults, an on-going Bible study, a wonderful lunch and after-lunch entertainment/speaker.  There is something for everyone on PrimeTime Monday!
