Who are we? Although our name is "Senior Adult" everyone is welcome to attend our meetings. We will not "card" you to determine your age. We actually have some people in their 20's who attend. I guess they just like being with the "old folk."
Where & When do we meet? We meet generally on the third Thursday of the month (April thru December) on the "Wild Side" (fellowship hall) at the church at noon. Meetings are listed in the monthly church newsletter, "Bridges." We also have sign up sheets at each meeting so you can sign up for the next monthly meeting or you can call Pat Baisden at the church office (304-523-3355 ext 4) to sign up each month. We suggest that you do let us know you are coming so we can have an accurate count for the caterers.
What do we do at our meetings? WE HAVE A MEAL. Being Baptists we can't have a meeting without eating. At noon we have a buffet lunch prepared and served by The Scrumptious Company. This is a full meal normally consisting of meat, vegetables, salad, dessert, coffee, iced tea and lemonade. We do not charge for the luncheon but ask that you would consider making at least a $6 donation to help cover the cost of the meal and program.
We conduct some business (less than 10 minutes): Our business consists of singing "Happy Birthday and Happy Anniversary" to those attending who have a birthday or anniversary that month and then we pray for those on our prayer list.
We have a program. Our programs last about 30-45 minutes. We have various kinds of programs - musical, funny, inspirational and informational so we can provide something for everyone. Past programs include - Bruce Rous, a fabulous pianist, Sing-a-long with karaoke music, The Tri-State Dulcimer Society, Dr. Bill Deel and also the Chamber Choir from Huntington High School. We also have had "first person" presentations by people giving a true biographical story of events.
How long does the meeting last? We are usually done about 1:45pm.
We meet together for one purpose and that is to take our minds off of our everyday problems and have great food, friendly fellowship and a whole lot of fun and laughter. We extend to everyone a cordial invitation to come out and join us and be a part of the group.
Our first program for the Senior Adult Fellowship Luncheons in 2019 was Keith Matheny. He provided a great time of "magic" using audience participation and he and his "dummy" had us laughing a lot. He ended his program with his faith message.
