Senior Adult Ministries at Free Christian Church is two-fold. We offer spiritual support and fellowship to senior adults from FCC and the community through the Senior Link and New Life Ministries. Through our Parish Partners we can also meet the spiritual needs of homebound seniors and senior adults living in nursing homes and care facilities. For more information on these ministries please contact click on the links below:
The Senior Link – Connecting With God And Each Other
This group is for senior men and women who would like to get together for Christian fellowship and Bible study. The group meets every Friday morning from 9:30 – 11:30 a.m. in the lower hall of Free Christian Church. Each week the group gathers for refreshments, prayer and Bible study.
If you would like to connect with other senior adults from Free Christian Church and the surrounding community then please join us on Fridays.
Parish Partners is the senior adult outreach ministry at Free Christian Church. The ministry consists of men, women and children who want to share God’s love with senior adults from our congregation, nursing home residents and seniors within the community who are not experiencing what it is to be part of God’s family.
- Bedside Ministry – These compassionate people love the elderly and have had some experience in nursing homes. This area of ministry involves making regular visits with nursing home residents in order to pray with them and share scripture. Time commitment varies but residents so appreciate whatever time people give. Want to put a smile on someone’s face – give it a try!
- Nursing Home Worship – FCC has services at area nursing homes
- Transportation -This team provides transportation to and from Sunday morning worship services for our senior church members who do not drive. Many of our parish members do not attend church because they no longer drive. Team members also drive seniors to and from the church on the last Saturday of the month for the “New Life Luncheons” and are available to provide rides to/from doctors appointments.
- Visiting Ministry – Parish Partners Ministry Visiting Team members make weekly visits or phone calls to a home bound senior. A match is made between a parish member and a senior who would like a special friend. Time commitment is one hour per week. The need is so great and with our population getting older there is no end to the number of people who need to hear the good news of Jesus Christ.
New Life Luncheon Ministry
Senior adults from FCC and the community gather on the 4th Saturday of each month for a home-cooked lunch, fellowship, a devotional message and a time of worship. The cost is $5.00 and all gatherings take place at noon in the lower hall of FCC.
