Mixed Adult Groups

OWLS 
A group of Older, Wiser, Livelier Seniors!  Our purpose is to come together in Christian faith and love to foster social camaraderie, enjoy good food, and fun times! Many of our events are held in our Fellowship Hall, like afternoon teas, guest speakers, and game nights. Some of our past outings include, Picnic with The Pops, movies and live theater, short day trips and factory tours. We also host empowerment opportunities, like CPR/AED basic course training, seminars on the internet and how to protect yourself in the cyber world. But above all, we offer support to each other as we move through life. Some ways we do this is by helping to negotiate transportation to our fellow OWLS who can’t drive, and loaning medical equipment for those of us who have a temporary need. We are always looking for more people who want to join us as we navigate through life Older, Wiser, and Livelier!
