Senior Connection is a First United Methodist Church organization for seniors over 50! It is an ideal place for meeting new friends and a wonderful place for an evening of fun and socializing. Dinner and entertainment are provided the 4th Friday of each month (except November and December), and begins with dinner at 6 pm in the Christian Activity Center.

Some of our activities include numerous worthwile community and church projects ($4,210 was donated in 2018). We also sponsor making pillow cases for children in the cancer ward at the OU Medical Center (we made 220 in 2018). There are also one-day trips planned around the state of Oklahoma.

During the month of June, Senior Connection is sponsoring a clothing drive for the homeless and those in need in our area. Some collected items will be used in helping those who come to our Street Outreach Ministry every Tuesday and The remainder of the items will be taken to the Hope Center, where they serve homeless and people in need in our area. Some of the items collected will be used in their Thrift Store (the money made at the Thrift Store goes to buying paper products and food items for those in need.)

If you have gently used and clean spring /summer clothing to donate, please bring them to the foyer or Wesley Hall. A few needed items are:

Socks

Shoes for walking, light weight jackets

Straw hats

Baseball hats

Clothing of all sizes

It is not necessary to be a member of our church to participate in Senior Connection activities and we invite you to come join us. If you are interested or have any questions please feel free to contact Carol Crisp at 341-4014.
