The Senior Adult Committee met via Zoom on June 8 to consider our Senior Adult activities and trips for the remainder of the year. Committee members expressed concern over the difficulty of our being able to follow CDC recommendations for group gatherings and to provide social distancing. After much discussion, the Committee voted to suspend all Senior Adult activities through December 2020. The September trip to the Amish Country and Washington, D.C. has been postponed until September 2021. The Committee concluded that the suspension of all Senior Adult activities through December 2020 is a necessary precaution for our First Baptist Greenville Senior Adults who are more susceptible to COVID-19. Hopefully, all activities can be resumed in January 2021—or sooner, if possible. Meanwhile, we all can make phone calls and send emails, notes and cards to encourage each other through this difficult and strange time.
