The Cheers Ministry is a community for those young-at-heart who are recently retired, semi-retired, or thinking about setting a date to retire.
Designed for our members and visitors who are of the Baby Boomer generation (you know who you are), this group is a way to build community, get to know others, and find ways to connect within our large church family. We’ve named it the “Cheers Ministry” from the line in the sitcom theme song, because we hope that this community will be a place “where everybody knows your name.” Although not intended to be a replacement for your Sunday School class, the ministry will include social activities, service projects, and opportunities for friendships and new experiences — all within our faith community.
Please join us as we kick off this ministry, so that the participants can have input into its direction and format. Please contact Dick Young if you have questions at 512-789-8480 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
Thursday, May 16, 9:30 a.m.-8:00 p.m.
The Cheers Ministry is planning a field trip to Fredericksburg with a bus leaving from Austin where our first stop will be at The National Museum of the Pacific War at Nimitz Museum. After touring the George H.W. Bush War of the Pacific exhibits, we will eat together in one of the fine restaurants of the city. After lunch and some shopping or bench sitting, we will journey homeward, but not before a tour of a winery for a tasting. Because our mission is to build community, we plan to travel together for fun and fellowship. Transportation arrangements will be sent to the registrants. Register by May 3.
