One quick glance at a Lanier Gardens monthly activities calendar is sure to solicit a “wow, there is so much to do.” And there is. For example: yoga, bridge club, book club, prayer group, day trips, shopping expeditions, movies, visiting speakers and entertainers, walking group, balance bikes class, poker night, bingo, music classes…and on it goes!


Lanier Gardens is sponsored by The United Methodist Church. We welcome people of all faiths to become residents, and our worship services are non-denominational and inclusive.


Another quick glance, this time at a typical daily menu in our lovely dining room where residents gather for one meal of their choice each day, and you’re likely to be saying “wow” again. If you’re in the mood for breakfast food (served during lunch and dinner hours), choose an omelet to order or Belgian waffles among several options. For lunch or dinner, you can go the Grill and Deli route with, say, a pulled pork sandwich or burger. On the other hand, you might be up for an entrée like the fish of the day or chicken pot pie or pasta bowl or a specialty salad. It’s all up to you. Enjoy.

The United Methodist Church is our sponsor, and church members throughout the Northeast Georgia Conference encourage and support us in numerous ways.  We welcome people of all faiths to become residents, and our worship services are non-denominational and inclusive.
