First Presbyterian Church is dedicated to providing opportunities for senior adults to engage in fellowship, study, and service together as well as being cared for during times of need.
FPC takes special care to keep in touch and meet the needs of our homebound members. Our Parish Visitors, Jennifer Pettey and Jennifer Regen, visit with members who cannot leave their homes due to illness or mobility challenges to provide a chance to stay connected and feel nurtured and valued as part of the FPC community. If you would like a visit for yourself or a member of your family, please email Jennifer Pettey or Jennifer Regen or call 817.335.1231, ext. 264.
Beacons Ministry for Senior Adults
