Welcome to First Baptist Seniors
Leading the Way and Leaving a Legacy
Our goal matches our church mission statement – making disciples here and everywhere for the glory of God! Our seniors are on the front lines of ministry in our church and community. We want to lead the way by the example of our lives, participation in our groups, and ministry to the church and community. We want to leave a legacy of faithfulness and fruitfulness in the kingdom while having fun along the way.
If you are a senior adult (and willing to admit it!), we invite you to come and join us. The senior years have many opportunities and challenges. We do not go on this journey alone. As we learn from the Lord and lean upon each other, we are stronger together. Some can be very active and some are becoming less active. We have several ministry opportunities for our seniors and to our seniors at all stages.
If I can help you get connected to our senior adults, please e-mail me at email@example.com or call 321-723-0561.

Senior Adult Picnic
Our senior adult picnic will be on the south field at church where we have the Fall Festival. We will provide pulled pork and ask names A-P to bring a side like corn on the cob, beans, potato salad, etc. and names Q-Z to bring a dessert. We will provide drinks, chips, and all serving goods. This will be a relaxing but fun time with some light activities. Feel free to bring cards, games, or other sharable activities and your lawn chairs so we can have fun while we share together. We start at 4 p.m. and have dinner at 5 p.m. Cost is $5 and registration is needed in the church office by March 27.
Our seniors are off to see “Mary Poppins” at the Cocoa Village Playhouse. We have a limited number of tickets at $23. We will leave at 12:30, enjoy the matinee performance, and then go to dinner at Florida Seafood. We should return around 8 p.m. Register with payment in the church office M-F from 9-5 p.m. (Some stairs are involved at the Playhouse.)
Conquer: The Battle Plan for Purity
The Men’s Fight club (on pornography) is sponsoring a 6 week Bible study for men starting April 20 called “Conquer: The Battle Plan For Purity.” This Bible study is video driven with small group discussion each week. Workbooks will be available for $15 each. Please go to http://www.fbcmel.org/ministries/set-free-ministries/ to view a trailer for this Bible study.

Senior Adult Groups
Life Groups are small groups of up to 16 people that focus on sermon application, focused discipleship training, your own spiritual health plan, service, and discipling others. They meet weekly at a variety of times at church, in homes, and in other locations. You may attend either or both a life groups and a Sunday School group. For many of our seniors, life groups are a new experience and after being in a group really like the sharing and closeness a small group provides. It offers a different experience than Sunday morning Bible study groups.

Sunday School provides Bible teaching, fellowship, ministry, and service. Groups meet concurrently with our morning worship services so you may attend before or after worship. Our groups have a variety of ages so even younger Bible study groups have seniors in them. Find the group where you connect best.
