Celebrating 100 Years of Serving Seniors

The Florida Christian Center will celebrate its 100th Anniversary the week of October 10th, 2022. Activities for residents will include a resident talent show on Monday evening, a Fall Festival on Wednesday, and a dance party on Friday night.

The culmination of the centennial celebrations is open to the community and will take place on Sunday, October 16th from 2-4pm at 1115 Edgewood Avenue South.  Games and activities for all ages will start at 2pm on the lawn with a silent auction indoors. The program at 3pm will include live music, recognition of special guests, and a memorable video presentation followed by a cake and punch reception.

Since 1922 when an abandoned military academy on Edgewood Avenue was purchased and turned into The Florida Christian Home of the Aged, the Florida Christian Center – a ministry of  the Christian Church (Disciples of Christ) – has been serving senior and disabled adults on this campus. The Florida Christian Center currently serves the more than 300 residents of the subsidized senior housing community of the Florida Christian Apartments and Sundale Manor Apartments by providing a full-time Chaplain/Executive Director and part-time Activity Coordinator to offer activities, spiritual support, educational workshops, exercise classes, art and more to nurture the body, mind, and spirit. 

While FCC is a ministry with a history in the Christian Church (Disciples of Christ), the FCC does not discriminate in any way regarding religious background, affiliation, or faith.
