Reaching all Generations for Jesus Christ
The Senior Adult Ministry exists here at First Baptist New Braunfels for the purpose of reaching this strategic age group for Jesus Christ. This desire manifests itself through Bible study, prayer opportunities, music involvement, fellowship, chances to serve others, and to develop a heart to be a lighthouse that proclaims the message of our Savior across this community. The challenge always before us is to engage this vital segment of our society with the powerful Gospel of God’s only Son. The spirit of this ministry is to fall deeper in love with Jesus Christ, and to allow Him to be the difference that He wants to be for all of us.
