Greystone Baptist Church is very fortunate to have senior adults from nearby retirement communities and neighborhoods as part of our church family, sharing their experience and energy as a vital part of Greystone. There are a number of opportunities designed especially for our senior adults.
Senior Adult Retreats/Conferences
Periodically, Greystone’s senior adults renew and rededicate themselves at retreats and conferences. The majesty of the mountains and the splendor of the ocean at Baptist retreats such as Caswell, Caraway, and Ridgecrest offer reminders of God’s awesome power. Growth and worth in God’s kingdom is highlighted in church and associational events.
From Area Retirement Communities (Magnolia Glen, Springmoor, Abbotswood, and The Cypress)
Greystone provides a van transportation service to residents of nearby Springmoor Retirement Community, Magnolia Glen, Abbotswood, and the Cypress each Sunday morning. The van is dispatched to Magnolia Glen, Springmoor, Abbotswood and Cypress at 9:15 a.m on Sundays to pick up residents and returns resident to their respective places after the 11:00 a.m. worship service.
Senior Adult Team
The ongoing ministry needs and desires of Greystone’s senior adults are reviewed on a regular basis by the Senior Adult Team. This team provides opportunities for growth in faith and service and for intergenerational exchange. An emphasis on senior adults is given in May each year.
