We want to provide seniors with programs and opportunities to enhance their quality of life in the following areas: social, emotional, spiritual, mental and physical. Here are weekly and yearly activities we do together. We invite you to join us.

Adobe Spark (56)

Mondays • Women's Bible Study

Starts Sept. 12. We meet on Mondays 1:30-3 p.m. Study of Philippians with the book To Live as Christ, To Die is Gain by Matt Chandler. Call Jenny Byrne for book and study guide. 

Monday and Wednesdays • Body and Soul Exercise

We meet Mondays 10:30-11:45 a.m., and Wednesdays, 12:30-2 p.m. starting Sept. 11. This fun, uplifting, cardio/strength workout is for every body! We welcome those with temporary injuries, weight challenges, orthopedic & balance issues, and other medical conditions. Anyone wishing to increase strength, flexibility, and aerobic capacity, should give this class a try. Taught by an ACE certified group instructor.

Tuesdays • Bridge

This is for all levels of play, whether a regular player or it’s-been-ages players. We meet on Tuesdays from 9:30 a.m.-Noon at 6565.

Tuesdays • Personal History Writers

Starts Sept. 12. Write a story on an assigned topic to be read to the group the following week. We meet every Tuesdays 9:30 a.m.-Noon at 6565. Make sure to contact Jenny Byrne to see if the class is full.

Second Tuesday • Book Club

We need the second Tuesday of the month, 12:30-1:30 p.m. at 6565 (except May and August).            

September: Between You and Me: Confessions of a Comma Queen by May Norris. Norris has spent more than three decades in The New Yorker's copy department, maintaining its celebrated high standards. Now she brings her vast experience, good cheer, and finely sharpened pencils to help the rest of us in a boisterous language book as full of life as it is of practical advice.

October: Surprised by Joy by C.S. Lewis. He takes readers on a spiritual journey through his early life and eventual embrace of the Christian faith. Lewis begins with his childhood in Belfast, surveys his boarding school years and his youthful atheism in England, reflects on his experience in World War I, and ends at Oxford, where he became, "the most dejected and reluctant convert in all England."

                                            

Wednesdays • Bible Study

Wednesday Bible Class starts September 13, 10 a.m.-noon. It’s an in-depth study of the Psalms taught by The Reverend Nicholas Lubelfeld.

First Thursday • Safe Haven

Join us as we cook and serve a meal to the area’s working poor. Please call Jenny Byrne to be placed on the work schedule. We meet the first Thursday of every month, 10 a.m.-1 p.m. at the First Christian Church (6165 Leesburg Pike, Falls Church). Call to be placed on the work list.

Second Thursday • We Hop to IHOP

This is a Dutch-treat breakfast, combined with fellowship and a guest speaker. We meet the second Thursday of the month, 9:30-11 a.m. (except May and August). IHOP is located at 6655 Arlington Blvd. in Falls Church.
