PrimeTimers Sunday class @ 9:20am in W129/130. Details
Pastor Rick Moe is currently taking us through a series on Paul's missionary journeys as recorded in the Book of Acts, chapters 11-28. We will learn not only where he went, but also why. And through the use of pictures, we will also see many of the places where Paul and his associates visited (Iconium, Lystra, Derbe, Ephesus, Corinth, Philippi, and Athens). God used Paul as His point person to spread the Gospel beyond the borders of Israel and the Jewish people. For this, we owe Paul a great debt of gratitude. Cost: NONE. PrimeTimers Class meets at 9:20am in rooms W129/130 for refreshments, singing hymns, and wonderful lessons from God's Word.
Visit our PrimeTimers webpage at: LINK for more info. Trips: We invite anyone and everyone to join us on our trips-whether a PrimeTimer or not. Bring your kids, grandkids, great grandkids, and your friends. As long as they can handle the walking involved, we'd love to have them. Socials: Because of space considerations at our socials, we prefer for those who attend to be "close" to the PrimeTimers ages of 60+. We say "close," because several in the class are not yet PrimeTimer age. If you're in the ballpark, join us.
