Senior Ministries


Fullerton has a very vibrant and active senior group.

The seniors are often involved in helping with the different ministries in the church and are always very supportive of the different church activities. 

Doug and Dorothy Bell are the leaders of this ministry, They, like the preceding leader, Gloria Palacios, who now resides at the Linda Valley Villa in Loma Linda, continue to "foster a caring relationship with each other in our joys and sorrows as well as being a support system for each other." The monthly birthday luncheons at a local restaurant and taking occasional day trips to local areas have continued. 

At the birthday luncheon, usually held on the second Monday of the month to celebrate all the senior birthdays for the month, the honorees receive a free lunch. However, anyone may attend. One of the seniors favorite restaurants, the Home Town Buffet on Knott Avenue, has recently closed its doors, but others remain, including the Souplantation, the Sizzler, the Old Spaghetti Factory and the Olive Garden.

Doug Bell organizes most of the day trips the seniors take, and some of them involve travel by train (the Metrolink), which they board in Fullerton and is always fun. The most recent trip was to Exposition Park in Los Angeles to revisit the Space Shuttle Endeavour and other attractions.

For further information, contact the church office via e-mail or call 714-525-4561 and/or check the church calendar for upcoming events.

Recent News:
The group has grown smaller with the death of Rosemary Taylor in March 2016 and the moving of both Georgiana Hart and Lola VanderMei to the Linda Valley Villa and Betty Maier to Wisconsin. However, others are being added as they qualify for "senior status."
