Our older adults simply refuse to act their age . . . and that’s good! There are endless opportunities for older adults to be involved with life at our church. Whether taking exercise classes at the Owings Life Enrichment Center, or going on a day trip with the XYZ’s, or enjoying dinner with our ladies group, Solos, you are bound to meet some nice people and enjoy fun and fellowship. We also offer a monthly Brown Bag Lunch Series (September-May), which is an enrichment and educational program for adults age 55 and older.
Events are for everyone—singles and couples. Our activities are open to anyone age 55 and older regardless of church membership.
