Senior Adults


Very Interesting Seniors Investigating Our New Season

Covenant offers programs and events well suited for the specific needs and desires of our older adults. These fellowship and congregational care opportunities enrich the lives of our senior members with fun and interesting activities. Many of these activities are considered VISIONS events, or “Very Interesting Seniors Investigating Our New Season of life.” Covenant’s senior adults take part in monthly outings and meetings, special events and ongoing churchwide programs. We encourage all to join in, including visitors and persons of all ages. Space is the only thing that limits our participation, especially on some of our travel outings.

Armchair Travelers

First Tuesday of the month, September - May, FE 300

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.

VISIONS Activities Day

First Tuesday of the month, FE 200

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.

Dates vary, different destinations in Austin and nearby

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.
