Senior Adult Ministry
Senior Adult Information

The Senior Adult Ministry, called Young At Heart, is a ministry for all people ages 50 and up that provides needed fellowship, entertainment, and spiritual growth.

The Young At Heart meets monthly in our fellowship building with plenty of good food, entertainment, and spiritual fellowship. A short devotion with prayer is provided at the beginning of all meetings.

Day trips and overnight trips allow the Young at Heart to relax and temporarily forget about many everyday situations that confront many senior adults. The senior adults especially enjoy trips to the mountains and the beach. Our past trips have included trips to Charleston, SC, Savannah, GA, Natural Bridge, VA, Nashville, TN, Myrtle Beach, SC, Asheville, NC, Pigeon Forge, TN, Jacksonville, FL and Chattanooga, TN. Day trips include plays and dinner shows, Christmas lights, and dining in nearby towns. 

The Senior Adult Ministry does outreach projects several times during the year.

Director: Mary Hensley
