First Seniors is community of seniors (65+) that meets 9 months of the year usually on the first Friday of the month. Doors open at 11:30am when people start to drift in for drinks (coffee, tea and water!) and fellowship. At noon, a delicious, nutritious lunch is served. Lots of laughter and chatter fill the room as we share a meal together. Most of us love to sing the "golden oldies" of hymns so singing is interspersed throughout our time. After lunch, there is a guest speaker or special activity. We close out our time together at around 1:45pm.

Our hope is that everyone who attends meets Jesus and feels His presence in the room throughout our time, leaving with their hearts full of His love, joy and peace and encouraged in their walk with Him.
