Covenant’s Armchair Travelers have adventures all over the world without ever leaving the church. This group is for members and guests who enjoy seeing new sights and fun places while experiencing great travel companions and tasty treats. Armchair Travelers is open to anyone wishing to see the world through someone else’s eyes. Those who have taken the trips personally narrate our presentations.

On the first Tuesday of the month, our older members and guests gather for VISIONS Activities Day. This day is jam-packed with activities: games and puzzles, lunch and a popular recent movie. We start at 10 a.m., enjoy a delicious lunch at noon and show the movie at 1 p.m. We appreciate a contribution for lunch and invite you to come for all the activities or for only part of the day.

VISIONS lunch is all about good food, great fellowship and an entertaining program. Interesting and relevant, our presentations have included talks about the LBJ Library, security in the Middle East, holiday music and more. The cost of lunch is $6 or whatever amount you are able to pay. Details regarding the programs are published in Covenant Matters. Visitors, guests, and friends of all ages are always welcome.

Our VISIONS Travel Committee plans an interesting outing each month from September through May. We enjoy a variety of places, sometimes leaving Austin and sometimes finding things to do right here. We travel to museums, nature cruises, theatrical and music venues, factories, emergency response and medical training facilities, churches of special architecture and more. We use the church bus and van, which accommodate about 30 people. We depart in the morning, eat at a restaurant along the way, and return to the church by late afternoon. Sign up sheets are posted on the patio each month and names are added on a first-come, first-served basis. Costs vary, as do days of the week.
