First Baptist Church of Ahoskie provides opportunities for service and fellowship for its Senior Adults, called JOY Fellowship. The primary ministry with Senior Adults includes fellowship meals, trips to fun and different destinations, and ministry to the church community.
JOY Fellowship Meal: At 12:00 noon on the 2nd Thursday of every month (except July & August), we enjoy a meal together at church. This meal provides a rich time of fellowship around the table as well as an interesting, entertaining, and informative program to follow.
Excursions: at various times throughout the year, the Senior Adult Ministry takes a day trip to areas such as the Norfolk Botanical Gardens, a local museum, the NC State Fair, and many others.
Homebound Ministry: the Senior Adult Ministry Committee meets at various times during the year to prepare cards and small gifts for our homebound members and those in long-term care facilities.
