The 55-Alive Ministry of First Baptist Church is a place for you to belong if you are a senior adult! We have a lot of fun, fellowship, and also enjoy ministering to others in our community. The 55-Alive group has a monthly meeting, usually on the first Thursday of every month at 11:00 a.m. We often meet for meals together, and have annual special meetings and celebrations (Birthday celebration, Thanksgiving Luncheon, Christmas Luncheon, etc.) We also enjoy going to the Riverside Convalescent Home in town and singing to the residents to encourage them. We also sponsor a couple of trips each year, usually to attend the Sight and Sound Theater in Pennsylvania, and "The Apple Express" trip to go apple picking in the mountains of Virginia in October.
The 55-Alive annual apple trip will take place on Thursday, October 20, departing the church parking lot at 8:00 a.m. The bus is currently full, and everyone is excited about the trip. If at all possible, please see that Margaret Geron (843-3266) receives the $5.00 (gas money for bus) prior to the trip. If you can't catch Margaret, please leave the money at the church office. We have 2 seats left if you are interested in attending.
