"For I know the plans I have for you," declares the Lord, 
"plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope for a future." 

Jeremiah 29:11


Fall Bible Study: 

 SENIOR ADULTS, have you seen the owl hanging out on the bulletin board outside of the entrance to the nursery? He has exciting news for you. We are offering you a chance to sign up for our fall Bible study, “Growing Older & Wiser”.

The class will be held on Thursdays in the Edinburgh Room at 10:00 a.m. beginning September 21 and running through November 16. You can get a registration form on the bulletin board, fill it out and leave it in the pocket on the board. Topics for each week can be found listed on the small owls on the board. You can attend all or part of the classes as you are able.

 Pastor Karen Anderson will be teaching the class.

Celebration of Life
Where can you have a delicious, hearty meal and enjoy warm fellowship with old and new friends followed by wonderful entertainment – all for just $7?!  From September through May, on the second Thursday of each month, we come together for this vibrant and growing outreach ministry. We’ve enjoyed the talents of many local musicians making for quite a variety of events including the Ambridge Area High School Steel Drum Band, John Cannon on the piano, and a world class whistler! All luncheons are served at 12:00 Noon in Westminster Hall and the programs usually follow in the same location. Reservations are required by the Monday before the program; payment is made at the door. (Due to busy holiday schedules and winter weather threats, we take December and January off.)

Friday Morning Men’s Breakfast Study - Fridays, 7:30 a.m.

These ‘senior’ men meet every Friday morning in Westminster Hall for a continental breakfast, and Bible study (the study/lecture begins at 8:00). The discussion is facilitated by a teaching team of pastors and laymen and usually pertains to a timely topic. This group does not meet in the summer.

Encore Men

These singing senior men meet on a regular basis to share their love of singing in praise to the Lord. They participate in Sunday morning worship services and also visit area nursing homes and retirement communities with the Primetimers. Reading music is not a requirement but is something that is taught.

Primetimers

This group of senior adults along with the pastors and other church members, visit several area nursing homes and retirement communities to lead a worship service for the residents. Volunteers of all ages, especially those with musical talents, are welcome to participate. Our schedule runs most Thursday afternoons from September through June and features a special musical program at Christmas time. This is a rewarding ministry that helps share the Word of God with others.

Sealarks

This group for widows and other women alone meets on the second Wednesday of the month at 1:00 p.m. in Westminster Hall for a bag lunch and an informative and/or entertaining program.  Special trips and outside events are planned through the year.  In addition, the ladies meet regularly for lunch, bridge and travel.  Annual dues are $20.
