Keenagers is the name that, for 40 years, has defined seniors (55 and above) here at College Church. Keenagers includes people who serve in children’s ministries, music ministries, Adult Communities and church leadership and fellowship together as senior adults.
The group gathers for fellowship on Fridays between September and April. At 5:30 p.m., we gather for fellowship around the punch table and share a buffet dinner. The dinner blessing each evening is offered by a member of the pastoral staff, following an interview that tells us about himself, his family and his ministry in the church. After each dinner hour we enjoy a lively program ranging from the educational to the inspirational to the musical to just plain entertainment.
Punch is served at 5:30 p.m., dinner at 6 p.m. ($8) and the program at 7 p.m. For more information, email Susan or call her at (630) 668-0878, ext. 172.
