Senior Adult

55+ NEWS

We have a very active senior adult ministry. The seniors meet on the first Wednesday of each month for a catered meal (cost $5) and a program. Program guests range from musical talent to informative talks geared for seniors. The fellowship is held in the Fellowship Hall at 11:30 a.m. Guests are welcome.

Both day and overnight trips are scheduled throughout the year. Check in to see what is scheduled.

A group meets each Thursday at 1:00 pm in the Fellowship Hall for a friendly (?) game of 42.


55+ is a ministry for Senior Adults at First Baptist Church Kilgore

From One Senior to Another

I had the privilege of  meeting with our church staff today and was it ever an exciting time. Our primary task was to plan and discuss the 2015 calendar.  What excited me the most was the obvious unity of spirit within the staff.  Everyone seemed to feel the freedom to give constructive input into each ministry idea presented. Dr. Glenn is doing a great job in building us into an effective ministry team.

Some of the ministry events we have calendared for 2015 include: Buckner Retreat; Senior Adult Day; Senior Adult Conference; Fall Bible Conference; and a Senior Adult Christmas Party.  Of course, we seniors will work with other age-groups in helping our church reach its overall purposes in 2015.  

Let me remind you of our 55Plus Meeting on Wednesday, January 7th, at 11:30 a.m. We will discuss some of our plans in greater detail and pray together in seeking the will of the Lord for we senior adults.  

One other word: What a fantastic experience of worship this past Sunday.  I want to compliment everyone who participated in presenting the gospel through music.  I especially want to thank David Berryhill for his inspiring leadership and his commitment to excellence in worship.
