The Senior Adult Ministry embraces members and prospects who are senior adults.We have 16 Sunday School Classes for discipleship and fellowship which are for men, women and couples. They are offered on Sundays at 8:00am, 9:30am and 11:00am.
The Senior Adult Ministry strives to offer opportunities embracing Matthew 25:35-40 “For I was hungry and you gave me food, I was thirsty and you gave me drink, I was a stranger and you welcomed me, I was naked and you clothed me, I was sick and you visited me, I was in prison and you came to see me….inasmuch as you did it to one of the least of these My brethren, you did it to Me.”

Many home-bound seniors have been lifelong members of FBCS and served our Lord faithfully for years. If it were possible, they would love to be with their church family.
The Heaven Sent Ministry provides an opportunity to minister to these by loving and giving back to them as they have given to others throughout their lives.
Our ministry is designed to touch member's lives with the love, comfort and compassion of Jesus Christ. As volunteers, we will seek to encourage and enhance their lives while acting as a bridge to connect them to their church family and its ministries.
