Keenagers is a fellowship group sponsored by WMPC and Raleigh Parks and Recreation, and is designed for adults ages 55 plus. Our membership drive is throughout September. The fee to join is $6 for the year. We meet on Thursdays, September - May, from 10:45 a.m.-12:45 p.m. (Come around 10:40 a.m. for good parking as most of our Bible studies dismiss around 10:30 a.m.) Each week we begin with a short business meeting followed by a great program and devotional. At noon, we enjoy a hot meal served by the best cooks in Raleigh! The fee for lunch is $5. Usually the group takes a day trip to a place of interest once a month. We will take an overnight trip in the Spring.

World Communion Afternoon Service
On the first Sunday in October we join with Christian communities around the world and celebrate our unity in Christ. We offer a communion service open to all, and on that Sunday afternoon, we particularly welcome older adults and anyone who may not be able to attend worship on Sunday mornings. Join us Sunday, October 5, at 2:30 p.m. in the sanctuary with a light reception following in Jane Bell Gathering Space. For more details, contact Judy Pidcock at 919-834-3425, ext. 238.

Old Time Hymn Sing
The Older Adult Committee leads an Old Time Hymn Sing service annually in May. We worship God and sing our favorite old hymns. Refreshments and fellowship follow.

You are cordially invited to a brief worship and communion service in the sanctuary at White Memorial at 11:00 a.m. on Tuesday, July 29, 2014. A light lunch will follow in Geneva Hall. Kindly reply to the church office at 919-834-3425. We look forward to worshiping with you!

The Senior Adult Committee has been studying ways to enhance the connections with our WMPC members with severe dementia. We are in need of people who have gifts to serve in this area by visiting and/or creating new ways to send them our love. Would you like to be a part of this endeavor? Contact
Lindsay Jordan with questions or suggestions.

Fit After Fifty
Every Tuesday and Friday, from 9:30 - 10:30 a.m., this group meets in Pickard Hall to move, stretch and exercise. Come join the fun and fitness.
