Our SAMS group is an active and vital part of our church family.  We meet several times each month for fellowship, for meals, for Bible study, for day and overnight trips, and more.  There is always great food, fellowship, and fun!  There is no minimum or maximum age to join us.  When you’re ready . . . come on!


SAMS will be sponsoring the AARP Smart Driver Course on November 4th, 2019 from 9:00 am to 4:00 pm here at GUMC in Room 2. The course cost is $15 for AARP members and $20 for non-members; it is designed for older drivers but open to all ages. Space is limited. For information contact Susan Mahaffey at 404-862-1955. Registration is online, with payment by cash or check at the door. To register, simply click on your choice of the date above.                                                         

When We Meet

Coffee & Donuts - Our Senior Adults meet on the First Tuesday of each month at 9:00 a.m. in the church Fellowship Hall for coffee and donuts.  We enjoy a time of laughter and fellowship and occasionally a game of cards, Scrabble, or Dominos gets started!

Fellowship Luncheons - We also meet on the Third Tuesday of each month at 11:30 a.m. in the church Fellowship Hall for lunch and an information meeting or program.  Each member brings a covered dish to share in a meal – which is followed by announcements, prayer requests, and an informative and entertaining program designed just for our Senior Adults.

Informational Programs - In the past we have had music programs, sing-alongs, and speakers on such topics as new Medicare changes, protection from scam artists, and how to write a living will.  Occasionally we offer special opportunities for our Senior Adults such as a Safe Driving Course, Health Fairs, and more.  We will be hosting an AARP Smart Driver Course on November 4. 

Travel - And then we love to travel!  Throughout the year we schedule day trips, overnight trips, and our Mystery Trip!  You just show up and try to guess where we’re going. 


When We Grow

Our Senior Adults are always involved in Worship, Sunday School, and Bible Study.

Monday Study Group (MSG) - We meet every Monday morning at 10:00 a.m. in the Fellowship Hall for a book and Bible study.  This group studies books written by prominent Christian authors (Max Lucado, Charles Stanley, Charles Swindoll, Adam Hamilton, and others) as we dig into the Word and discover its continued relevance in our lives.  Our study of the book of Romans is underway.  Come and join us on Monday mornings at 10:00 a.m.

There are moments for discussion and sharing as we learn together and, while this class is primarily for Senior Adults, we welcome all who want to join us!
