Are you struggling with getting older? Trying to adapt to new limitations in body or mind, while maintaining a positive spirit? If you are interested in sharing with others at a similar stage of life, we have a group for you! Saints Alive! meets Wednesdays from 11 am to 12:30 pm in our Fellowship Hall. We gather to learn, to listen, to laugh and to support one another. We have occasional speakers who bring us information on topics related to aging. We also do fun things like play games and go on outings. Our target age is folks 70 and older, but all are welcome to attend. We conclude our meetings by sharing bag lunches together so feel free to bring one. Questions? Contact Rev Diane at email@example.com.
