VISIONS

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. Many of these activities are considered VISIONS events or “Very Interesting Seniors Investigating Our New Season of life.” Covenant’s senior adults participate in monthly outings and meetings, special events, and ongoing church-wide programs. We encourage all to join, including visitors and persons of all ages.

If you have questions about senior ministries at Covenant, contact us.

Armchair Travelers continues its great line-up of presentations for the year when on Thursday, April 4, Anne and Paul Wheeler share their 2023 trip to Jordan and Egypt, including stories of home-hosted meals with residents of Amman, Luxor, and a farming family on Besaw Island in the Nile, all during the holy fasting time of Ramadan.  We will explore the famous canyons of Petra and the iconic pyramids of Gaza, to the untouched burial chambers of Tutankhamen discovered by British archaeologist Howard Carter in the Valley of the Kings to the illuminated temples of Abu Simbel built by King Ramses II.

We meet at 7 pm in FEB 200, with light refreshments provided.  We encourage those that can join us in-person to do so, but we will also share the presentation via Zoom for those who cannot attend in-person.
