Ministries for Older Adults at Glenn Memorial UMC include a wide range of fellowship, service, learning, and pastoral support. There’s no age minimum OR maximum for participation!  Retirement means something different for everyone, but wherever you find yourself as the years go by, there is a place for you with Older Adults of Glenn. Monthly opportunities include fellowship meals, interesting day trips around metro Atlanta, and pastoral care led by clergy and laity alike.

Care Team
