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).

Glenn volunteers lead a short service on the first Sunday of the month at 4:00 p.m. for residents ranging in age from 75-100+ with a variety of physical and cognitive impairments.
