“And let us consider how we may spur one another on toward love and good deeds, not giving up meeting together, as some are in the habit of doing, but encouraging one another - and all the more as you see the Day approaching.” Hebrews 10:24-25 (NIV)
FCC Senior Ministries seeks to exemplify the love of Christ and to encourage those who consider themselves to be of “Senior” age through friendship, teaching, sharing, support, prayer, companionship, “get-aways,” Bible Study, and fellowship. All events and activities are designed to address and meet the varying joys and needs of those who have earned the wonderful distinction of being a “Senior!”
