Holy Spirit has a very active seniors group called Prime Timers, composed of people who enjoy getting together for fellowship, good conversation, and positive experiences. We have several special interest groups. We are lifelong learners both of new experiences and of having fun together.
Our group is composed of singles, couples, and people with diverse backgrounds and interests. Although the majority of our group is composed of members of Holy Spirit we have some members who have been invited to join us from other churches in the area, so we are both diverse and ecumenical. However, our in-person meetings are currently suspended due to Covid-19.
We normally get together for a breakfast meeting on the fourth Wednesday of every month (except June, and July) when we have fellowship, share past events and hear of the upcoming activities. We also indulge in trivia to sharpen our minds and sometimes laugh at what we don’t know. If you have any questions, Renee Wetherhold is our coordinator.(484-542-0879)
We also have an Investment Group to discuss various investment philosophies and opportunities. They meet the 2nd Monday of the month at Luther Crest (Stock Market fluctuations after these meetings are merely coincidental.) Will Boyer is coordinator of this group.
Intellectual Stimulation Group
The Intellectual Stimulation Group gets together on one Tuesday a month to hear a presenter on a specific topic such as Identity Theft, Sex Trafficking, China :The Old and the New .We have had discussion leaders from within our group and also from outside resources. A question and answer period always follows.
Trips, Arts and Entertainment
This is a planning group that looks at new exhibits in the area, new attractions at museums nearby, band concerts and new restaurants opening in the area. Every month we visit a museum or a special historical place and also an inviting restaurant often with a foreign flavor. Suggestions are welcome.
The Book Reading group meets approximately once a month usually on the 2nd Thursday from 10:00 am to 11:00 am to discuss a selected book. You can check the Calendar of Events for the next meeting date and book title.
Movie discussion and Lunch
In the winter months our movie discussion provides a chance to get out and enjoy company. We meet in rooms 117-119 at 10:30 am to watch a movie and then go out to Perkins for lunch afterwards to discuss it.
In the winter we also have a game day once a month from 1:00-3:00 pm. The day varies. People bring their favorite board game or cards or scrabble etc and share with the others. There are familiar games but also new ones to learn and enjoy.
