At First Baptist Church Vicksburg, we seek to minister to our Senior Adults through informational/educational programs specifically formulated to meet their needs, yet also offer times of fun, fellowship, travel and ministry opportunities.
Joy Fellowship is a meeting for all senior adults who would like to attend. We meet every other month (beginning with February) on the first Thursday of the month in the First Baptist Church Family Life Center, beginning at 11:00 a.m. with fellowship or sing-a-long time. Lunch is catered at a cost of $5.00 per person. At 12:30 p.m. we have a program of interest or entertainment.
The Lunch Bunch meets on the first Thursday on alternate months beginning with March. Any seniors who wish meet at Shoney’s Restaurant at 11:00 a.m., eat the Buffet and enjoy a great time of fellowship.
Seminars and Retreats are also planned during the year which offer tips on driving, health needs and support groups, home health, legal helps, etc.
A Senior Adult Christmas Lunch is held the first week of December each year. This is a great time for all our senior adults to come together in fellowship and enjoy a wonderful meal with a special guest entertainer.
Day Trips, Over-night Trips and even Extended Trips are planned throughout the year. Watch the 55 Plus page for a schedule of trips for 2016. Call 601-636-8941 for further information or to sign up.
