The Senior Adults at First United Methodist Church are a diverse group. Our activities are designed to meet the needs and enrich the lives of the members of our church. The Senior Adult Council is responsible for the following programs.

This groups meets in the gym on Tuesday and Thursdays at 4:30 p.m. for low impact exercises.
GREETING CARD MINISTRY
Many volunteers send cards to senior adults who are in assisted living facilities, nursing homes or are confined to their homes. Cards are sent monthly and on birthdays as a reminder that the church is thinking of them.
Each Tuesday frozen casseroles prepared in the church kitchen are delivered by volunteers to members who have been discharged from the hospital during the week.
