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.

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 PM. Register with payment in the church office M-F from 9-5 PM (Some stairs are involved at the Playhouse.)
Florida Baptist Children's Homes
We will go to Lakeland to serve in the donation center, the warehouse with food supplies, and the back-pack program. We will leave at 8 AM and return about 8 PM. Bring your own sack lunch. We will provide the drinks and we will stop for dinner on the way home at Fred's Market in Lakeland (an outstanding southern buffet.) We leave at 8:00 AM and return about 8:00 PM. If you want to serve, please contact Debbie@fbcmel.org or call the church office 321.723.0561 no later than May 8.

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.
