In-Betweeners is a fellowship group for those past college age (30?), up to late 50’s(?). We dont care about your age as much as we care about having fun and creating lasting friendships.

Our group meets the 4th Saturday of each month for fun activites and fellowship.  Our next get-together will be April 22.  Interested in joining us?  Email me.

The Explorers meet every Sunday morning at 9:30 a.m. in the Library.

In the next few weeks we will be starting a book titled The Gift Of Years, Growing Older Gracefully by Joan Chittister. We have come to know Joan Chittister as a remarkable and articulate writer. Each of the 42 chapters is self-contained. Here is a sample of some of the chapters: The Purpose of Life; Regret; Meaning; Fear; Ageism; Joy; Authority; Transformation; Newness; Accomplishment; Possibility; Adjustment; Fulfillment; Mystery ;Relationships

Quote from Chittisters chapter on Meaning: 'It is not by muscle, speed, or physical dexterity that great things are achieved,Cicero wrote over two thousand years ago, but by reflection, force of character, and judgement. In these qualities, old age is usually not only not poorer, but is even richer."

We invite you to join us! Questions? Talk to Mary Ann Jones or Loren Du Puy.

Other adult small groups may be offered during the Connections Hour every Sunday morning at 9:30 am.

Short-term Studies are offered throughout the year, studying specific books of the Bible, spiritual practices and topical studies.

Call the church office (714-776-5710) for information on current classes not listed here.
