Senior Adult Ministry

The Senior Adult Ministry of the First Baptist Church of Fort Walton Beach exists for the purpose of honoring God through programs, trips, ministry opportunities and providing an atmosphere of fellowship, growth and caring for the needs of its members, unchurched and other senior adults in our area.


Life is satisfying as you enjoy your retirement, spend time with your children and grandchildren, and develop your interests. But it can be frustrating as you stop working, lose friends, and search for ways to continue making a difference in the world.

We're here to help by providing opportunities for service, a community of friends, and a place for worship and fellowship. You'll discover that your time and talents are needed, your wisdom and willingness are valued, and your experience is important to us. The Senior Adult Ministry of First Baptist Fort Walton Beach is all about life.


Worship, Fellowship, Service, Friendship, and Family. Those are the things that we work to build in the Senior Adult Ministry at First Baptist Fort Walton. We feel that these can be the best years of your life--the "Prime of Life." We want to assist you in being all that God wants you to be. Whether it's learning a new angle on a favorite Bible verse or on the go with our traveling group, you'll easily understand what all the excitement is all about. With dedication to the Lord, the Senior Adult Ministry is on the move and we want you to come along.

Homebound Ministry

The purpose of the Senior Adult Homebound Ministry is to maintain regular contact with those who cannot attend Sunday School, worship services, other activities and to minister to them in Jesus' name.

Visits are made on a regular basis and remembrances are sent on special days (such as birthdays, anniversaries, holidays, etc.). Needs are identified and reported to Senior Adult Minister. Meals are prepared and delivered to homebound members on special occasions. Special remembrances are delivered during the Christmas season.
