Forever Young

“Forever Young” is a social group for church members who are 50+.We come together for an activity once a month.  Some events include… going to plays, picnics in the park, cruises and holiday parties.  We’ve attended the Holy Land Experience and Yacht Starship Luncheons. “Forever Young” enjoys eating out at local restaurants or even potluck meals at different members homes.  We would love to have you join us for some fun and fellowship!  For more information please contact Carol Goebel at (813) 447-0781.
