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

           April 21, 2016

Seniors say some of the "darndest" things sometimes!  Let me share a couple of bits of wisdom I received from an old friend of mine this week:

*  Just before the funeral services, the undertaker came up to the very elderly widow and asked, "How old was your husband?"  "98" she replied... "two years older than me"... "So, you're 96," the undertaker                                                 commented.  She responded, "Yep, hardly worth                                                         going home is it?"

*   THE SENILITY PRAYER: Grant me the senility to forget the people I never liked anyway, the good fortune to run into the ones I do, and the eyesight to tell the difference!

SENIOR ADULT DAY is Sunday, May 1st.  We are going to honor all of our seniors and give special recognition during the service to all seniors who are 80+.  Following the morning service, all seniors are invited to a luncheon in the Fellowship Hall.  Please call Kathy (903-984-3531) in the church office to let us know if you're coming!
