Older Adults

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.

Care Team

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.

Caregivers Support Group

Are you a family caregiver of a loved one with memory loss, dementia, or Alzheimer's disease? Join us for a monthly support group of confidential encouragement and care on the third Wednesday of each month from 4:30 - 5:30 p.m. in the Parlor. To RSVP, contact our Support Group facilitators: Aubrey and Carol Bush or Rev. Susan Pinson (404.634.3936, ext. 103).

FriendShip Group Lunch & Learn with Dr. Bruce Cauthen

Thursday, July 25, 11:00 a.m.-1:00 p.m. Youth & Activities Building (YAAB) – Darrell Bryant Room
Join with Older Adult ministries for a casual lunch & learn with the always intriguing Dr. Bruce Cauthen sharing on another newfound Puritan ancestor - Rebecca Briggs Cornell (c.1600-1673), his 10th great grandmother. Rebecca arrived in Boston, with her husband Thomas Cornell, in 1637. They were acolytes of Anne Hutchinson and followed her into exile in Rhode Island and, then, New Netherland. The Cornells ultimately returned to Rhode Island where they became distinguished citizens. However, when Rebecca met with a grim demise in 1673, New England was shocked and every attempt was made to conceal the circumstances of her death. Join us for the fascinating true story!  $5 per person for lunch.  RSVP with Rev. Susan Pinson spinson@glennumc.org 404.634.3936.
