The Older Adult Ministry at First Presbyterian Church provides programs and activities that engage the mind, body, and spirit. We offer weekly Bible study/small groups, monthly luncheons, fun fellowship opportunities, trips, and educational programs, as well as an annual Community Senior Adult Health & Resource Fair from 12-3 p.m. on the second Friday of March (March 12, 2021). We invite all to join in any of our events. You do not have to be a member to participate.

Spirit of Service (SOS) Program – Monthly programs are held on the second Friday of each month from October through May at 10 a.m. in Room A. These programs consists of a devotion, time for singing, special speaker/entertainment, fellowship, and lunch. Lunch is $7.  RSVP by calling the church office at 863-686-7187 or emailing oam@fpclakeland.org. A bus is available to those who live in the Florida Presbyterian Homes, Lakeland Presbyterian Apartments, or Lake Morton Plaza and wish to attend this program. Please tell the church office if you are in need of this transportation.

“We Get You Home By Dark” – Dr. Paul Suich, parish counselor, leads this Bible Study/Small Group each Wednesday at 4 p.m. in Room D. Everyone is invited to this inspirational study and to stay for the church dinner. During the winter months, the timing of this class allows participants to make it home before dark, as the name says.

Game Day is held on the third Saturday of each month at 9:30 a.m. in the Youth Hall. Participants are invited to bring a favorite snack or breakfast food to share and to join in a variety of table games.
