Our ministry exists to provide opportunities for Christian fellowship and companionship within our community. As we walk through life together we strive to fulfill several objectives:
- Winning souls to Christ.
- Discipling our brothers and sisters in the Word of God.
- Assisting people as they seek God’s purpose for their lives.
- Finding fulfillment in the life gifted to us by God.
- Championing the wisdom and experience gained through the journey of life.
Fellowship is an integral part of our mission, so we provide our members ample opportunity to build community and form new friendships. This is accomplished through ministry and service opportunities, weekly fellowship meetings, and exciting trips. We also offer a variety of fun trips throughout the year. Please check out our calendar and see what’s coming up next and join us!

We take advantage of a number of opportunities to serve the community, including:
Thursday Fellowship Meetings
Many of the seniors in nursing and retirement homes grew up on Bluegrass style music. We are very pleased to be able to travel from place to place and bring back memories of music near and dear to them.
This Senior Life team refers to themselves as the “Pleasant Mountain Bluegrass Band”, named after a beloved mountain range in the Amherst County area of Virginia of which some members of the band fondly remember from their childhood and adult years. The band ministers in approximately 45 nursing/retirement homes and churches throughout the year.
Salty Sidewalks is an evangelistic outreach started by Lisa Albinus of North Carolina. God gave Lisa the vision of reaching others for Christ through their individual artwork. Whether it be a bookmark, keychain, magnet, or any other creative idea, the artwork is designed to be given as a gift, or abandoned for someone to find. We have monthly workshops here at TRBC where we gather together for fellowship and a time to work on our art projects.
Senior Life Choir
Since the founding of the senior adult ministry by Dr. Norman Hedding back in the 1970’s, there has been a senior adult choir and it continues still today under the leadership of Joann Willis. The choir has had many different members and traveled many, many miles and sung hundreds of songs. Many souls have come to Christ and we rejoice in that! Currently, the choir consists of 25 or so very faithful, dedicated members and they have the privilege of singing in approximately 36 nursing/retirement homes, senior adult recreation centers, and churches per year.
Fellowship and prayer are the basis for our Secret Sister group. Our “reveal and exchange” luncheon takes place every six months, where we exchange a small gift with the one who was our secret sister and receive the name of a new person to whom we will minister to for the next few months.
We pray daily for our Secret Sister and send a monthly card of encouragement. Our “every other month luncheons” are a wonderful time to stay connected through fellowship and group prayer.
We are so blessed to have an army of volunteers who faithfully serve in the nursing & retirement homes in our area. Some visit with the residents one-on-one, some visit those who are homebound, while others conduct church services and Bible studies.
There is always room for more volunteers! If you would like to help in this area of ministry, please contact us below.
