Meeting Schedule through March 2013 - February 2014
The “Young in Heart” was organized for any interested adults 50+ for the purpose of Christian Fellowship. Meetings usually fall on the third Thursdays and are usually held in the daytime. The December and February meetings are held at night to accommodate some of the younger members, who might want to get acquainted and “test out” the group. Some meetings are held in the Fellowship Hall and some are trips outside the church. Yearly dues of $15 per person cover group expenses and some meals. (They are due in January and are given to the Treasurer, Dee Rowley). All interested persons are welcome and are given an opportunity to volunteer for leadership roles.
