’Aging Gracefully’ senior program

 

There is a senior citizen program with lunch held every Wednesday in the La Vernia United Methodist Church Family Life Building. “Aging Gracefully” is an outreach to the community; a number of people that attend other churches come to this event. Wherever you go to church, you are welcome!

It begins at 10 a.m. with tai chi chih; people that don’t want to exercise begin to arrive at 10:30 or so. It is a time of visiting and enjoying each other and then about 11 a.m. a program begins. As an example of some of the events, it might be a card game, a craft, maybe play bowling “senior style,” or maybe animal trivia. Other activities could be playing Mexican Train, or a mystery activity. Sometimes the group is honored to hear “The Wranglers” and enjoy wonderful music. Gretch is so good at looking for fun events and games.

Before lunch there is devotion time and the attendees are blessed by a message from our Lord and sharing of His love.

At lunch, there is an excellent meal served for just a love offering. Brian prepares wonderful meals. Sometimes the meal is hamburgers with all the fixings, another time it is spaghetti and meatballs. Also served are meals of pork chops with all the trimmings and enjoyed with a salad and veggies. Everyone enjoys the time together and eating such good food.

The last Wednesday of the month there is a field trip. They have included a trip to Seguin and eating at the Grand Buffet and touring the pecan factory. Sometimes the field trip is a trip to play miniature golf, followed by pizza for lunch. Or maybe the trip is to brunch and a movie. All are very enjoyable and a time of great pleasure as the company is enjoyable and the activities are great!

Some of the comments of those that attend are:

“It is a pleasure to go to Aging Gracefully every week and see friends, gather hugs, and just enjoy a time of being with others that love our gracious Lord.”

“Attending Aging Gracefully is a great pleasure each week. It is so good to visit with others and to play the games, and the food is always delicious. Thanks, Brian.”

“One of the highlights of our week is going to Aging Gracefully. It is a wonderful time to get hugs from friends, to visit with them and to play a game, sometimes a silly game but so enjoyable. It is a time to hear a great devotion and then to enjoy lunch with all.”

If you live in the La Vernia area, you are invited. This is a ministry to all of the community, regardless of your church affiliation. Come and bring a friend, and enjoy a time of games, good food, and fellowship. It is also a time of reflection upon the Word of God through a devotion and prayer. See you there!
