First Presbyterian Church is committed to the continual development of programs by, for, and with "Boomers and beyond." We realize that life is a continuum of opportunity to learn, share, love, be successful, and grow spiritually.
Our programs are open to all seniors, members and non-members, who are in the middle to late years of life.
The Breakfast Club meets the first Monday of each month at 9:30 a.m. at a local restaurant. It is open to members and friends who like to start the day with fellowship and a tasty breakfast. For more information contact the church office, (970) 482-6107.

There are also a variety of "intergenerational" activities and events in which the seniors play an important role by interacting with the children and youth by sharing crafts, skills, telling life stories, and social opportunities.

- Advent Celebration (with families)
- Family Easter Celebration (with families)
- Kingdom Konnection (an event for 4th & 5th grade students)

Transportation, in the church vans, is offered each Sunday for those seniors wishing to attend the 9:15 a.m. Worship Service. If you would like a ride to church, please call the church office for more information and to sign up. The vans are able to accommodate a limited number of wheelchairs.
Homebound, Nursing Home, and Hospital Visitation
The Caring Ministry Team and Deacons work together to insure that our seniors, who are homebound, in a nursing home, or in the hospital receive friendly visits on a regular basis from Deacons and trained members-at-large.
Communion is also served monthly by trained elders, trained deacons, and the pastors in order to reach members and non-members in nursing homes, assisted living facilities and private homes.
