"The Joyful Bunch"
The senior adult ministry at FBC McDonough is a blessing for this special group of people. The "Joyful Bunch" gets together for food, fellowship, and entertainment at a luncheon meeting each month. We have monthly day-trips to area attractions, and twice a year we attend a three-day retreat at the Georgia Baptist Center at Toccoa, Georgia.
For those who like to sing, our "Joyful Singers" practice weekly and perform at area Nursing Homes and Assisted Living Facilities in December and May.
We may be retired, but we still know how to enjoy God's blessings. If you are 55 or over, you're welcome to come join us!
