The Evergreen Luncheon is a vital part of First Irving's ministry to Seniors. This group meets most Tuesday mornings throughout the year at 11:30 am in the Fellowship Hall for lunch, prayer, fellowship, and a program. The lunch is priced at $4 per person. 


The homebound ministry is for those unable to attend worship services and Bible study on Sunday morning for health reasons. Through coordinated efforts between the staff and volunteers, CD’s & DVD’s are provided for members of First Irving who aren’t able to worship with us in person each week. If you would like to volunteer to serve in the Homebound Ministry, please contact the church office and we will be happy to put you in contact with the Homebound Ministry Director, Susan Chambers. 

Additionally Senior Adults are encouraged to participate in the numerous events and mission trips that are sponsored by the church each year. A few of which are listed below:

  • Family Ski Trip
  • Caribbean Cruises
  • Local, National, & International Mission Trips
  • Branson, Missouri
