Sardis is Your Senior Link!
If you are retired, an empty-nester, or just downsizing your busy life, Sardis Presbyterian Church has the “Senior Link” for you.
Aging is inevitable and is the blessing of long life. There are challenges and opportunities along the way. Sardis’ Senior Link Ministry hopes to provide you with information and assistance at the level you desire. Our goal is to keep you connected to your church family and to keep you up-to-date on church activities, opportunities, and available resources.Friendship Connection

The Church Bus
The church provides transportation to the 11:00 a.m. worship service on Sunday mornings for residents of Plantation Estates and for the retirement communities Carriage Club, Sharon Towers and The Cypress.
Church members are paired with homebound members and serve as a phone friend. The phone friend calls the homebound member once a week to see how that individual is and to keep him-her updated on news from Sardis.
Special Worship Services and Communion*
