Adults 50+ Ministries

YOU ARE STRONG, ENGAGED, AND YOU ARE LOVED!

There is no doubt that adults 50+ are the most powerful consumers in the marketplace. There are currently 110 million people in the US who are 50 and older – and 1.7 million of them live in Alabama. That means over 30% of our population are 50+.

At Trinity, we have an active ministry for those 50 and older. Monthly programs and activities vary widely:

  • – hearing interesting speakers
  • – traveling on both day and overnight trips to unique sites
  • – trying new restaurants together
  • – attending cultural and special events
  • – participating in service and mission opportunities
  • – taking walking tours and exercise classes
  • – and caring for others as well as ourselves

All while growing mental, physically and spiritually. COME JOIN US!

May 22 • Cahaba Lily Walk
9:45 AM – Meet at the McDonald’s near the Galleria (will leave at 10 AM)

Please come with us to see the largest display of blooming Cahaba lilies in the world –  acres and acres of them spread out over the water in the Cahaba river. These lilies are a sight to behold!

The hike is about five miles round trip. Rated easy. Wear sturdy footwear you don’t mind getting wet and dirty. You’ll want to put on your river shoes so you can walk out into the shallow parts of the river to stroll through and touch the lilies which grow only in the water. Bare feet, flip-flops, slip-ons and thin-soled “beach shoes” are not acceptable! You may wear your sturdy river shoes for the entire trip if you like. Please bring picnic lunch and your drink. Hiking poles are strongly recommended to provide additional stability when wading in the river.

We plan to depart from the McDonald’s near the Galleria at 10:00 AM. Dan Frederick of Southeastern Outings will be our guide.
