Senior Adults

Each group has its own "feel," so we invite you to prayerfully explore and find the place that God has prepared for you. For more information, please contact the Adult Education Ministry:

Ministry Opportunities

In-Touch

The In-Touch Ministry exists to share the love of Jesus Christ with those who reside in retirement communities, rehab/care facilities, or those who are homebound. Areas of service include:

  • Visiting with residents
  • Leading Bible studies
  • Leading a worship service
  • Participating in a worship service through singing or playing an instrument
  • Visiting those who are homebound, including providing respite for in-home caregivers
  • Holding prayer times
  • Holding a reception or craft activity with residents as an Adult Bible Fellowship outreach activity

By bringing a personal touch to these individuals, we bring glory to God and fulfill the biblical mandates to “honor your father and mother” (Exodus 20:12) and “visit orphans and widows in their need” (James 1:27). We believe it is God’s desire that His servants finish well and want to be a part of that.

If you have a servant’s heart, and are looking for a place of service to those who need visits, hugs, love, prayer, comfort and the Gospel, consider joining the In-Touch Ministry today! To learn more, contact Ryan Irwin at 972-820-5322 or rirwin@prestonwood.org.

Platinum Singers

Platinum Singers is a senior adult choral program at Prestonwood Baptist Church. The organization consists of two choirs (“two groups, one heart”) that rehearse on Thursdays, September through November and January through May, with summers off. Prestonwood membership is not required to participate in either group.

Platinum Choir (no audition necessary): Membership in this choir requires only a love of singing (the ability to read music is not required). Platinum Choir sings hymns and fun songs and frequently ministers through singing at senior adult facilities in the area. Rehearsals are Thursdays from 2:15 to 3:15 p.m. (Room W207).

Platinum Chorale (by audition only): Membership in this advanced choral choir is for those who can read music and have fine vocal skills. Rehearsals are Thursdays, 1:00–2:15 p.m. (Room W206). To audition for this group, e-mail Carolyn Tucker at ctucker@prestonwood.org.

Both Platinum Singers choirs are directed by Dr. Rix Tillman, a retired pastor with an extensive musical background.

Singing opportunities for both groups include ministering at senior adult communities and participating in senior adult choir festivals and other special events.

For more information, contact Carolyn Tucker at ctucker@prestonwood.org or 972-820-5287.

Scoops and Scripture

The Scoops and Scripture Ministry mobilizes believers to engage people with the Gospel in senior residential facilities. Scoops volunteer teams visit assigned residential facility monthly. Scoops gatherings include a time of singing, a Gospel devotional, door prizes, photos, fellowship and an ice cream party (with a scoop!). Residents receive a photo album, and every month they receive a new Bible verse card to decorate and a photograph with their Scoops team to place in the album.

To learn more, contact Phil Mitchell at 972-820-5177 or pmitchell@prestonwood.org.

Knit Wits

The Knit Wits knitting and crochet group meets at 9:00 a.m. every Tuesday in the Commons. If you don't know how to knit or crochet, we'll help you learn! Feel free to come and join us for a time of fellowship. All ages are welcome! For more information, contact womensministry@prestonwood.org.
