Ministries for Older Adults at Glenn include a wide range of opportunities for fellowship, service, learning, and pastoral support. Wherever you find yourself as the years go by, there is a place for you here. Monthly opportunities include fellowship meals, interesting day trips around metro Atlanta, and pastoral care led by clergy and laity alike.
A simple phone call, a card in the mail, or a short visit to share God's love with those who may be homebound or lonely. Care Team volunteers will be matched with one or two church members to stay in touch. Contact Carole Adams.
