Senior Adult Ministry (“SAMS”): Our SAMS group is an
active and vital part of our church family. We meet twice monthly,
once for coffee & donuts and once for lunch with a guest speaker.
There is always great fellowship and fun! Plus we go on trips
throughout the year. Please contact Steve Sheppard at

When We Meet:

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. There is not a planned program, but we enjoy a time of laughter and fellowship, and occasionally a game of Scrabble or Dominos gets started!

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.

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.If you have questions or if you’d like to learn more please contact Steve Sheppard by phone 770-963-2944×227 or by


When We Grow

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

We have a group of Senior Adults who meet every Monday morning at 10:00 a.m. in the Fellowship Hall for a book and Bible study (“MSG”). 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.


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!
