Did you know that seniors who regularly participate at a senior center...
  • learn to manage or delay the onset of chronic disease
  • improve their physical, social, emotional, mental, spiritual, and economic well-being
  • get connected to vital community resources that can help them stay healthy and independent for as long as possible
  • access multiple services, most for free, at one central location  



Since 2007 the King Senior Center has been providing programs, classes, and social activities to enhance the quality of life for senior adults, age 55 and over, in the greater King community. Operating from 8:30am-5:00pm Monday through Friday, and located on the lower level of King Recreation Community Building at 107 White Road, the center offers:


  • Dance classes for all skill levels
  • Weekly BINGO
  • Bridge, Canasta, Hand and Foot, Euchre and other card games 
  • Mah Jongg

  • Exercise classes are being offered across the county at Oak Grove Baptist Church and Lawsonville Community Center

  • Plenty of volunteer opportunities both at the center and in the local community
  • King Senior Travel Club that meets several times per year for lunch and offers low cost trips to various theaters, restaurants, museums and other attractions 



We also have weekly ZOOM Chats so that our seniors who want to engage from home can do so.  We catch up, share information, tell stories, and enjoy seeing and talking to others even if it is via phone, tablet or computer. Some programs are offered both in-person and vitually.

With funding from an ARPA Senior Center Expanded Services Grant, King Senior Center has partnered with Walnut Cove Senior Center to bring classes and other center programs and services to six remote sites across Stokes County beginning September 5, 2023!  Sites in Sandy Ridge, Francisco, Lawsonville, Danbury, Pine Hall, and Oak Grove Baptist Church will be offering two exercise classes each week and one monthly activity that all have the potential to help older adults improve their health and wellness and live longer, more independent lives.  All classes and programs are free and open to adults age 60+ AND participants can attend multiple sites.  For more information, call King Senior Center at 336-983-0751.


OUR MISSION      The King Senior Center is an extra-governmental facility affiliated with the City of King dedicated to providing services and opportunities to citizens 55 years and older and their families.  It is publicly and privately funded and operates for all senior adults in the community, regardless of race, color, religion, sex, national origin or disability.  The King Senior Center exists to enrich the lives of seniors through programs and services that will improve their health and wellness, decrease their loneliness and isolation, and provide social, economic, and educational opportunities that will enhance their quality of life.


OUR VISION   To enhance the quality of life for senior adults through education, recreation, and interaction with others.
