To provide opportunities for spiritual enrichment; provide social and fellowship activities, make available education information pertinent to senior adults and provide opportunities for ministry.
Senior Adults, persons 60 and over, are the largest age group in our church. They are also the most faithful in attendance, in giving and in service. A quick look around in our worship services, Bible study times and areas of service will prove how vital Senior Adults are to the life and ministry of the church. Some of them are charter members and many others have been members of Eastern Hills for 40 years and more. These are the folks who have invested their lives in the building of Eastern Hills and in addition to their regular tithes and offerings have supported financially every building program from 1956 until the present. We also have a large number of Senior Adults who have joined our fellowship in recent years and who have immersed themselves in all of our programs and activities. They are an incredible blessing to our church and our Senior Adult Ministry. Our Senior Adult Ministry is always open to new members and we will welcome them with open arms.
Senior Activities at EHBC
Sunday School/Bible Study
We have ten Sunday School classes for Senior Adults. These classes are men only, ladies only, couples and singles. All have excellent teachers and provide a place to ‘be at home in a small group’ in a large church. Every church member is enrolled in a Sunday School class.
During the course of the year we will take several one to five day trips. We also take trips to a Braves game in Atlanta and to traveling exhibits in Birmingham, Mobile, Memphis and Atlanta.
The B.A.L.L. Club (Be Active Live Longer) is the name given to our monthly meetings and special events. These are usually scheduled on the 3rd Thursday of the month and feature a covered dish meal and special program or theme nights. Periodically we will have ‘Movie Night’ and ‘Game Day’. Each fall and spring we go to the Catfish House in Millbrook.
The last Monday of the month we have “Breakfast Bunch”, 8:00 am at Chappy’s on Carmichael Road. These are enjoyable times for food and fellowship.
