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

NEED HELP? The above title is the name of a new ministry we are launching within the next few weeks! NEED HELP? is specifically designed for "senior adults who are in need of minor assistance." This includes: minor carpentry, painting, changing light bulbs, wheel chair ramps, and more. Thanks to David Spinks, chairman of the Properties Committee, we now have a NEED HELP? trailer filled with all kinds of tools, instruments, etc. It will be utilized to meet the needs of this new ministry. Let me suggest several different ways in which you can be a part of NEED HELP?
1. Volunteer to be a member of this ministry team
2. Give funds to meet the financial needs of this ministry (Designate: "NEED HELP?)
3. Let the team know of someone who is need; even if it is you (Call the church office or call me at 903-808-7622)
ONE OTHER IMPORTANT THING: We will help church members and non-church members!

Keep in mind, we still have one FNO function scheduled for November 11th. More information following. We will continue to have our 55+ Luncheons on the 1st Wednesday of each month except during the month of December (We have our Senior Adult Christmas Party on December 12th. Thank you for adjusting to these changes.
