Senior Adults

Our Senior Adult Ministry is based on the Scripture "He shall be like a tree planted by the rivers of water that brings forth much fruit" (Psalm 1:3). Our senior adults contribute much to the life of our church and community, and our Senior Adult Ministry offers a variety of avenues of ministry and service. We also offer special times of study, fellowship, travel and continuing education. Our ministry includes very active senior adults all the way to those who are now homebound. Senior adults are valued at First Baptist Church, as are their wisdom and experience. 

Senior Adult Newsletter  

Each month we publish a Senior Adult Newsletter which is mailed out to over seven hundred seniors in our church and community. If you would like to be added to the mailing list, please call the Associate Pastor's Office at 903.831.6000 or email wstephens@fbctexarkana.org.

Senior Adult Trips

Our senior adults are active! We always offer a variety of trips ranging from one day adventures to more extensive trips all over the world. This year we will be doing several day trips as well as our major trip.  In October 2018, we will be going to Switzerland and the Italian Lakes.  For information on upcoming trips, call the Associate Pastor's Office at 903-831-6000, ext. 121.

Homebound Ministry 

There are many of our church members and friends who are no longer able to get out of their home or retirement facility. Our extensive Homebound Ministry extends the love of Jesus to these individuals by visiting our homebound church family. Currently, our Homebound Ministry is one of the largest in the Southern Baptist Convention! Including a host of volunteers, there are almost two hundred people enrolled. For more information, call the Church Office at 903-831-6000, ext. 121.
