Brother Tim Lavender is our involvement and seniors minister. We love our seniors and invite you to be a part of our Young at Heart group. The Smyrna Church of Christ Young at Heart has been organized since 1995. The purpose of the group is to provide a way for those who are over 55 to get together and do a few things. Fellowship and love for one another is the top priority. We go somewhere or do something once each month and would be glad for other Christians to join us. 2018 Schedule
