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 and there is a $10.00 annual fee to help cover the costs of speakers’ lunches. 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.

NOVEMBER 3: LIVING AND WORKING IN THE PEOPLE’S REPUBLIC OF CHINA 1992-1996
