SENIOR ADULT MINISTRIES

Our seniors are very active at Athens Christian Church. We have many regular activities available for this age group, including trips, dinners, and outings.
This group meets every second Tuesday of the month (September-May) in our Family Life Center from 10:00 AM until noon. We invite you to join us every month for an enjoyable program, fellowship, brief devotional, and tasty lunch (free of charge). There are free blood pressure screenings from 9:30 a.m. - 10:00 a.m.
Check out the 2021-2022 Schedule below and plan to join us!
