Seniors for Christ 
The Seniors for Christ group is a loving ministry comprised of 55 years of age and up men and women who love God, our church, and our community! There are many activities that are available to let people participate in where their interests lead them:
 
  • Service Projects: Service activities include building ramps for people who are wheelchair bound, volunteering at the local and church food pantries, taking communion to shut-ins, visiting the sick, participating in church grass-growing efforts, driving members to doctors appointments, helping in after-school programs and Children’s Bible Classes, being Greeters for church services and other projects. As a group, we even assisted a Christian School in their move to a new building by painting classrooms.
  • Local and area trips: Seniors enjoy fellowship and increasing their knowledge of Texas by going on trips together. Many day trips by buses or caravanning have happened over the past few years. Some of these trips have been: The Dr. Pepper and Texas Rangers Museum in Waco, Sam Houston Homestead and the Prison Museum in Huntsville, Franklin Safari, POW camp in Hearne, George H.W. Bush Library in College Station, Black History Museum in Bryan, Museum at Washington on the Brazos, Newman’s Castle in Bellville, Painted Churchers in Schulenburg, San Jacinto Monument and Port of Houston in Houston, Cotton Gin Museum in Burton, Museum on the American GI in College Station, Blue Bell Factory and Rose Emporium tours in Brenham, and more! Additionally, we have ladies days out at tea rooms and mens days at car shows. If you enjoy adventure and learning history, join us!
  • Table/Game Fellowships: The Seniors for Christ love to get together for food, fellowship and games! We call it Game Night. We try to schedule it for the 3rd Friday night of each month in the church parlor. Seniors can bring games they enjoy playing such as 42, Mexican Train, Bridge and many others. Besides games, snacks are also brought so nobody goes away hungry. There is an annual 42 Tournament each year. It is always fun to play or observe!
  • Potluck Meals: Potluck Meals are a time to get together for delicious food, fun and fellowship. It is a time for everyone to meet people they do not know and enjoy each others company. Sometimes there are presentations from speakers and special celebrations. In this past we have had a slideshow presentation from a former NASA scientist!
  • Linda’s Card Ministry: In 2013 some of the seniors began taking part in a worthwhile card ministry for people who need encouragement, are ill or just need to know others care. We have been able to touch many lives through this ministry. Cards are sent on major holidays or more often if the sender wants. The sender is free to call and visit the people they are watching over as well. The Card Ministry was renamed Linda’s Card Ministry when one our members, Linda Forsthoff, passed away in 2015. Linda was a giving and caring person spreading Christ’s love through her cards for many years before the Card Ministry was started as a group effort. We continue to this day to touch people through the memory of Linda.
  • And much more!
 
A 55+ council plans and oversees the activities of this ministry. The council is made up of SFC members who serve 1-2 years. New council members are welcome as are suggestions for new activities and group experiences.

The church values our 55 and up age group and recognizes some of the unique challenges they face. This ministry is designed to help this age group meet those challenges by encouraging fellowship and allowing newcomers to discover a place to call their church home.
