SAM: Senior & Archives Ministries
Janice Box, Pastor of Visitation and Senior Adult Ministries
FFMC Legacy Hall (Below the Sanctuary) houses the SAM (Senior & Archives Ministries) room. It is dedicated to serving those oldest amongst us. It is a special place to come and do things you might do at any senior center. All seniors, no matter their faith, economic status, heritage or race are encouraged to come to join us as we learn together in a kind Christian atmosphere. Bible studies and activities to improve or learn new skills and serve others will be offered. Come join us as we journey together the wonderful years of senior citizenship. All ages are welcomed to volunteer and join in the fun!
FFMC offers activities every Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday and the occasional Thursday but we need volunteers to keep the SAM open.
FFMC SAM needs you to volunteer!
Come and share time in the SAM for meetings, events and in the gym for the “Walk and Talk.” Everyone no matter your age is welcome to come volunteer to help in the Sam. FFMC SAM needs You!
