A Senior Adult Ministry led by Reverend Jeff Keeman
The OWLS (Older Wiser Living Successfully), Senior Adult Ministry of First Baptist Church exists to help provide direction and support for the spiritual, emotional, social and physical well-being of our senior members. The Senior Adult Ministry offers many opportunities for anyone 55 years of age or older who is working or retired---able or disabled---married or single---rich or poor, to be strengthened and encouraged every day in their walk with God. Our Senior Adult Ministry is designed to serve the needs of the senior adult members of First Baptist Church. We want to ensure that no one is lost or forgotten.
Members and visitors are welcome to enjoy our monthly day trips and/or occasional overnight trips to fun and interesting places.
Our Senior Adults also play a vital role in the life and ministry of First Baptist Church. Some serve as deacons, while others visit the sick and home bound members. They also volunteer helping the office prepare bulletins, mailings and other literature. Some teach Sunday School. Some aid with worship services such as being an usher, play instruments or sing in the choir. Some do specific ministries under the guidance of the church Missions Ministry (click on the missions tab of this website). Others are busy making phone calls, writing notes, letters, and much more.
Every Senior Adult is cordially invited to join us in fellowship, Bible study, worship, outreach and ministry opportunities.
