My Help Comes From You Church Website Banner

The older members of Lea Joyner Church are an important part of our congregation.  Therefore, our church offers a variety of programs for them weekly or monthly. During COVID times, however, these ministries are paused until the restrictions are eased.


Young At Heart Choir

This is a choir for anyone 55 years of age or older. The choir meets every Wednesday at 10:00 AM. They sing for the 9:00 service periodically, as well as participating in various special programs throughout the year.  The Young At Heart Choir has much fun and there is good fellowship among the members. We would love to have you join us. For information see Elaine or call the church office at 343-0073.

Count Me In

Count Me In is a senior adult group that meets occasionally on Wednesdays at 11:30. They enjoy a covered dish meal, warm fellowship and a light program. Program Guests generally consist of musicians singing gospel songs or good music from years past. It is open to anyone and we encourage visitors.

Widows/Widowers Lunch

All widows and widowers are invited to a monthly meal with Pastors Ben and Betty. We meet on the last Wednesday of each month at restaurants throughout the community. You can meet at the church at 11am to ride the bus together, or simply meet at the restaurant at 11:30. Come enjoy a dutch treat lunch and some great fellowship with each other. For information see Pastor Betty or call the church office at 343-0073.

We co-host a Senior Adult Vacation Bible School every summer with First UMC Monroe and St. Paul UMC. We meet from 10am-1pm for 3 days to learn together, sing together, and eat good food. Everyone is invited! For more information, call Betty Swanson at 343-0073.
