About Our Senior Adult Ministry
“Now also when I am old and gray headed, O God, do not forsake me, Until I declare Your strength to this generation, Your power to everyone who is to come.” Psalm 71:18
The Senior Adult Ministry of Second Baptist Church is made up of vital, vibrant, and victorious Senior Saints. We exist first and foremost to glorify God and exalt the Lord Jesus Christ. Our purpose is to be an Ephesians 4 Ministry that places a premium on equipping the Saints, edifying the body of Christ, thus offering various opportunities for our seniors to do the work of the ministry. Our desire is to disciple, prepare, and then provide places of service so that they may know experientially what God has called them to do by obeying Him through ministering to others and reaching the lost with the Gospel of Jesus Christ.
The Senior Adult Ministry at Second desires to serve you and help you serve others. We want to challenge and enable you as well to finish strong in the race of life by being found faithful, filled daily with the Holy Spirit, and thus living a supernatural and fruitful VICTORIOUS LIFE till our KING returns or one is called home to glory.

Senior Ministry Opportunities
Our mission is in keeping with a statement Christ made to His disciples recorded in Matthew 25:40b when He said “Inasmuch as ye have done it unto one of the least of these my brethren, ye have done it unto me.”
There are also several ways to be involved with our Senior adult ministry. We are always looking for people to help serve and be a blessing to those who have and are leaving a legacy of godliness.
Helping Hands (Men)
The Goal of this ministry is to assist needy senior adults and deployed family members of Second Baptist Church in the following:
- Repair or replace basic carpentry, plumbing or electrical issues in the houses of our senior adults who lack adequate resources or family members who can do the work.
- Lawn mowing and yard care is provided for those needy senior adults and deployed family members who have no one else to provide this service.
- A Pallbearer Committee is available for church members upon request.
Helping Hearts (Women)
In this ministry we take time to go and visit, call, send cards, and pray for shut-ins each week!
Helping Wheels Transportation Ministry
We serve to bring the senior saints who can’t drive to fellowship. Corporate worship is critical to the strengthening of the saints!
