The Fifty and Beyond group has officially changed our name to more accurately reflect our primary purpose and to not be age-specific. We are now the Seniors Fellowship. We are also involved in Service Projects and Benevolence. We meet the 1st Monday of the month in the Fellowship Hall. Fellowship normally begins at 7:00 p.m. with a short business meeting. In March, June, September and December the meeting is preceded with a potluck dinner at 6:00 p.m.
We also have social activities beyond the meeting night and beyond the church property. Social activities after our meetings have included Bingo, Bunco, Minute to Win It, and our annual Christmas gift exchange. We have taken the Lake Norman Sightseeing/Dinner Cruise, toured the Childress Winery followed by a great meal there, eaten family-style at the Hillbilly Hideaway, enjoyed a trip to Grandfather Mountain followed by a tour of Camp Linnhaven (Lutheran) and dinner at the Dan’l Boone Inn, toured Old Salem during the Christmas season, attended the Dinner Theatre in Wytheville, Va. for a performance of “Christmas in New York”, and recently attended the “Bodies Revealed” exhibit that is touring the country. More trips are being planned for this year.
