Meeting Times:

11:00 AM   Meeting on Zoom

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!

KEYS meet every Friday morning, currently online, 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. Our first in-person KEYS event will be June 18, 2021. At least for now, all KEYS events are Mask Required.

One of our goals and mission is to ensure and provide that others in the FPC family feel welcome at many of our events and to provide Christian fellowship and programs for enrichment of older adults. 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, 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.
