Golden Age Ministry Director – Paulette Jones – E-mail

Our Golden Age Ministry is made up of people 55 years and older. As we get older, making new friends and maintaining old friendships becomes more difficult. That is why the main focus of the Golden Age Ministry is fellowship.

Our “Lunch Bunch” meets one Thursday a month to go to lunch at different restaurants. This gives us an opportunity to visit, discuss many topics and pray for our friends and family.

The 4th Thursday of each month we gather for a day trip somewhere not too far away. We explore museums, go to the Imax, Dinner Theaters and visit State Parks. We always enjoy a good meal along the way. At least twice a year we meet in our Fellowship Hall for a potluck and musical program.

Activities such as these give our senior adults the opportunity to stay active and visit with friends.

We would love to have you join us! The only criteria is to be 55 plus!

Golden Agers Activities for 2018

Sign-up sheets will be on the bulletin board for each Lunch Bunch outing and for the monthly outing. Be sure to sign the list if you plan to attend. As always, I reserve the right to make changes if necessary in case of bad weather, bus problems, sickness, etc… (And let me be the first to say “I hope none of these things happen.”)
