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
A simple phone call, a card in the mail, or a short visit to share God's love with those who may be homebound or lonely.  Our Pastoral Care Team has been sharing this love in the Glenn family for years and we now invite all ages to be a part of this meaningful ministry.  Care Team volunteers will be matched with one or two church members to stay in touch - simply by sharing a card, call, or visit.  For more info. and to volunteer, contact Carole Adams at caroleadams@bellsouth.net or 404-377-1504 or Rev.
