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.

MY FAVORITE TIME OF THE YEAR BEGINS THIS WEEK!  I love Thanksgiving and Christmas.... Mostly because they give me an opportunity to slow down just enough to reflect on my life.  And I think reflection is good for the soul!  This time of the year causes me to take a deep pause to reflect and say "thank you Lord for all the grace" you've thrown my way.  And honestly, we don't deserve a single blessing that God has flooded our life with during 2015.  We can all join the apostle Paul in saying, "I am what I am by the grace of God." 

CHRISTMAS IS A SPECIAL TIME OF THE YEAR!  It is a time to pause and weigh the significance of the greatest gift mankind has ever received: the Christ Child...or put another way: God in the flesh!  Of course, we know the rest of the story.  This Christ Child grew up to become a propitiation for the sins of the world.  The significance of his death is coined in the words, "No greater love has a man than this; than to lay down his life for a friend."  Therefore, all of us who acknowledge Jesus as Lord understand the depth of love God demonstrated for each of us by Jesus' death on the cross!   As this Christmas season ascends upon us, why not take time to reflect on how this GREAT GIFT from God has changed your life forever!

DON'T FORGET OUR SENIOR ADULT CHRISTMAS PARTY on Monday, December 14, at 6:00 pm in the Fellowship Hall.  It will be a time of celebration as David Berryhill leads us to rejoice through music and our special guest, Dr. Allen Reed, shares from his heart about the joy of Christmas.  Please call Kathy at the church office (903-984-3531) to RSVP for this special time together.  You know what I'm going to say next: BRING A FRIEND OR TWO!
