The Senior Adult Ministry of Petal-Harvey Baptist Church is a comprehensive blend of Worship, Spiritual Growth opportunities, and Fun and Fellowship events. From the Greatest Generation to the eclectic Baby Boomers, those of us that are over 55 years on this earth have a place to build relationships and grow in our walk with the Lord. Our main avenue of living out this golden resource in our church is the 55Alive group.
This group is involved in fellowship, personal enrichment and spiritual growth opportunities such as Trips, Conferences, Retreats, and Mission Endeavors. Other ways that we get this group moving is through small group Bible Studies and Choir. A wide variety of offerings are planned each year to meet the needs of a very diverse population. It is true there is something for everyone in the 55Alive group.
Regular monthly offerings are a DayShift luncheon on the first Thursday with a catered lunch and program. The second Thursday is when the NightShift meets to go on an outing to a variety of restaurants for a dutch-treat supper. GameNight is held on the third Thursday and is a fun time of snack foods and games. Many more day trips and special events make for a full calendar of activities designed to make these years the Best Times of Our Lives!
