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

July 13, 2016

 ON WEDNESDAY, AUGUST 3rd, at our 55+ Luncheon, we will finish our brief study of the Book of Ecclesiastes!  It is a fascinating book full of negatives and positives.  But I've already read the back of the book and I know how it ends.  DO NOT FORGET to read through Ecclesiastes at least four times before we meet on August 3rd.  Remember, our luncheon will start at 11:30 am in the Fellowship Hall.  BRING A FRIEND!

I AM WRITING A BOOK TITLED "Growing Old: It Is What It Is." Many of you received a questionnaire about what you think about growing old?  It asks eight questions about your opinion and what you experienced in this process we call "growing old."  I want to remind you to turn in those questionnaires at our next 55+ Luncheon on August 3rd.  If you didn't get one, you can pick one up in the church office. 

IF YOU HAVEN'T ALREADY DONE SO, it is time to sign up for an appointment for a "Life Line Screening" scheduled for Monday, August 1st in our Fellowship Hall.  Either come by the church office, call Kathy at 903-984-3531 or you may call Life Line direct at 1-888-653-6450 for an appointment. These screenings include: Carotid artery, heart rhythm, abdominal aortic aneurysm, peripheral arterial disease, and osteoporosis risk assessment.  This is a wise preventive medical option! Kathy still has a few coupons for $10 off, so call today!

 "FRIDAY NIGHT OUT AT THE MOVIES" is scheduled for August 12th.  More information will follow in the eNewsletter and bulletin. Popcorn, candy and floats will be available!

JUST A WORD ABOUT SUNDAY SCHOOL  The majority of people who have invited Christ into their life were people who were a part of a Sunday School class (or if prefer: Bible Study or Small Group).  If you aren't presently active in a class, I want to ask you to consider joining a class.  If you are already involved in a class, I want to challenge you to invite someone to your class.  When we get involved in a Bible Study, we are opening our lives to the truth of God's Word.  Remember, according to Scripture, God promised that "His word would not return to him void."  SEE YOU THIS SUNDAY!
