Senior Lunch Bunch - February 4th

Our  next Senior Lunch Bunch get-together will be on Tuesday, February 4th at noon.  The discussion topic for Lunch Bunch: "Aging Boldly". Pastor Steve will share some key insights from the presentations on aging that he attended at Holden Village 

Second Hour Classes for "In-Betweeners" and All Adults

The In-Betweeners Second Hour Class meets in the Pastor's Study and is for anyone between college to retirement-age. We  have no agenda planned for our second hour gatherings and just go with  the flow. It's lots of fun! We would love to grow our group so I  encourage people to bring a friend or two! 

     I want to thank Gail Frassenei for  hosting our game night/potluck at her home in January. We don't have  another event planned yet, but tossing around some ideas, maybe a beach  weekend, a BBQ ... who knows! Come join us!


The "less young" adults meet in the Fireside Room, and we  have a couple more sessions on holistic health with Jennifer Stevens,    Then, beginning February 16, we will explore "Five Love Languages" ... the tricky art of loving the people in our lives. 

Plan Ahead for the next Week of Compassion - February 16th-23rd

Holy Land Trip - Update as of February 1st

Holy  Land trip prep is getting exciting.  We are 26 in number, got the group  together recently, and another meeting to come.  There's room for a few  more, however we are told there are very few Passion Play tickets  available, so if anyone wants to sign up, this is the time.  Contact the office or visit with Pastor Steve.
