At SMBC, we have many rich opportunities for senior adults to be involved in the life of the church. Whether it’s Bible Study opportunities, Wednesday Night suppers, retreats, trips, South Main At Home groups or other fellowships, you will find a group of senior adults bonded together by the love of Jesus Christ.
