Monthly gatherings of young adults, single or who have chosen their life partners, who are college age and older, who may be in graduate school, or are already working.

Monthly gatherings of adults and young families designed for adults between ages 25-45 (+ or -). Gatherings alternate between “adults only” and “with children”.

This is a ubiquitous crowd whose ages are from 45 to ?? (but who’s counting?) Most of these folks have children who are long gone from home. Prime Timers gather approximately six times per year for a covered dish supper in members’ homes. The members are among the first to roll up their sleeves for workdays and special projects around the church. An annual weekend trip is a highlight of this group’s fellowship.
A group of retired individuals and couples who meet monthly for lunch at a local restaurant for food, fellowship and stimulating conversation. Participants take turns inviting other members to try their favorite restaurants.
