Adult Groups

We have a wide variety of adult groups that meet at different times each month. Some meet for breakfast each week, to travel to new places, and others meet to do an act of service for others. In each of these groups, those who participate not only find joy in participating, but they also find joy in new relationships with others. If you have any questions about any of these groups, contact the Church Office.

Young at Heart (YAH) is composed of members over the age of 55. It is supported as a part of the Senior Adult Ministry of the church. Meetings are held the third Thursday each month except June and July at 11 a.m. in Jeff Wall Hall. Featured each month is an interesting program along with a delicious meal! The mission of the group is to provide senior men and women with opportunities for fellowship, worship, service and spiritual growth. For more information, contact the church office.

This friendly group of men meets every Friday morning at 8 a.m. at the Dipsy Doodle Restaurant, 2331 W. Broad St., Cookeville, for breakfast and fellowship. The group is also active in helping serve in the church and community. New members and visitors are always welcome! For more information, contact Rev. Rob Wheeler.

 

Thursdays at 3:30 p.m. in the Freeman Bldg. Gym.  Chair Yoga can play an important part in contributing to a healthier body, mind, and spirit. It is an effective and gentle way to improve your balance, strength, flexibility and posture, all while seated in a chair or standing using the chair for support. It can lesson the impact of chronic illness and pain, reduce stress and improve mental clarity. Chair yoga provides a unique opportunity to explore gentle postures, breath work, meditation and deep relaxation. A yoga mat and block are suggested.

Mondays at 9 a.m. in the Freeman Bldg. Gym, starting September 10. Regular exercise prevents chronic disease, improves mood and lowers the chance of injury.

Plus exercise also eases depression and feeling of loneliness. You can be a part of this class with our without a chair, depending on  your fitness level and medical conditions. Bands, tubing or light weights, plus comfortable clothing and rubber-soled shoes are suggested. For more information, contact instruction Lisa Renner or coordinator Barbara Hughes.

The quilting ministry creates beautiful quilts, blankets and other useful items that provide care, comfort and encouragement. These items are a tangible sign or symbol of God's love for them. We make warm fleece blankets, pieced quilts, and flannel baby blankets for Food Pantry families, baptismal quilts for babies baptized in our church, capes for warmth. and walker caddies. The group generally meets the second and fourth Tuesday afternoons in Jeff Wall Hall. We welcome and invite new members to the group. Call the church office for more information.
