We meet in the Life Center Conference Room on the 1st and 3rd (and 5th when applicable) Thursdays of the month from 10 am - 12 pm. Sessions will be led by Debby Gunderson.
In 7 sessions, Seamless covers the people, places, and promises of the Bible, tying them together into the greater story of Scripture.

Once a month, a group member organizes a gathering for a meal and fun activity either at their home or local restaurant. These gatherings often have a seasonal, holiday, or other type of theme like Halloween, Chinese New Year, or Pirates Day. These gatherings the participants an opportunity to catch up with each other while having fun. Service projects are also often on the agenda. Most Late Boomers members are from the Baby Boomer generation but all are welcome to join. For more information, please contact Loretta Williams.
