KEYS Adults Fellowship is for members and friends of First Presbyterian Church who range in age from 50 years of age to 100-plus! We invite you to enrich your second half of life with us as we actively participate in First Presbyterian Church ministries, learn, enjoy fellowship, travel, and serve one another! The mission of KEYS is to provide Christian fellowship and programs for the enrichment of older adults at First Presbyterian Church.

KEYS meet every Friday morning at First Pres, September through June, to experience the abundant life of Christ through a variety of programs and services, including sharing, service, fun, fellowship and food. Participate in all or part of the day’s activities. Special events are held during the summer, along with “Strength, Balance & Stretch” exercise classes.

One of our goals is to ensure that others in the FPC family feel welcome at many of our events. KEYS seeks to foster the spiritual, intellectual and social activities of older members and to provide resources that enrich their lives. KEYS programs include opportunities for learning, fellowship, travel and service to others.

The main speaker program on Fridays begins at 11:00 AM and ends promptly at noon. Outstanding programs include: local history; book reviews; educational; legal issues; inspirational talks; musicals; community affairs; mission trips; financial planning; health issues; humor; movies; concerts; current events. Following the program, lunch is served ($8). KEYS publish a newsletter each month listing upcoming programs and special events.

Birthday lunches are the third Friday of each month and are held at various restaurants throughout the city area. Check our church bulletins and newsletter for dates, locations, and cost. Birthday honorees are our guests at these meetings, which are a time of fellowship and celebration. Reservations are essential for these gatherings, so contact our receptionist ( / 210-226-0215) to secure your place.

Bush museums, Vanishing River Cruise, wildflower trips, UT Art Museum, Austin Presbyterian Theological Seminary, LBJ Ranch, Early German Christmas, July 4th Patriotic Concert, King Ranch, Christmas in Brenham, Toyota Plant, governor’s mansion, Texas capitol, Salado Christmas Stroll and many local places of interest.
