At Golden Hills we call our senior adult ministries, PrimeTimers. Our goal is to help each other continue to grow and finish strong in our walk with God, as well as be connected with other seniors in meaningful relationships. We also want to find ways to be godly influences in the lives of our kids and grandkids, as well as with our friends and neighbors. In addition to our Sunday morning class at 9:20 a.m., we usually have an event once a month. These have included socials such as game nights, picnics, movies and desserts, New Year’s Eve and Super bowl parties, and our annual Christmas Banquet. We have also gone on local trips to wonderful places like the Disney Museum, Maritime Museum, and the Golden Gate Bridge in San Francisco, as well as to the Great Western Fan Festival, California’s capital building, Filoli Gardens, and several dinner cruises on the Delta. The best place to get connected and find out what is currently happening is to join us Sunday mornings at 9:20 a.m. in room W129/130.
Sunday Mornings at 9:20 a.m. in room W129/130.
Gary Middleton is teaching a series entitled: "Jonah: What's Lurking Below." Sometimes everything seems right in our life. And then an event happens that brings out an attitude in ourselves that God wants us to address. This is what happened to Jonah. God asked him to go to Nineveh and help the people of that great city repent and turn to God. This revealed Jonah’s negative attitude toward the Ninevites which had been lurking below the surface of his heart. Through various means, God reached out to both the people of Nineveh and also to Jonah. Interestingly, we discover that the Ninevites repented; but we are left wondering if Jonah did. What’s lurking below the surface of our hearts?
Did you notice the small boat in the picture to the right? How about the great fish below the boat? Many in our class missed both when they first saw the picture.
Socials & Trips:
El Campanil Play: The Hallelujah Girls
What: Hilarity abounds when the females of Eden Falls, Georgia, decide to shake up their lives. The action in this comedy takes place in SPA-DEE-DAH!, the abandoned church-turned-day-spa where this group of friends gathers every Friday afternoon. The women realize time is precious, and if they're going to change their lives and achieve their dreams, they have to get on it now!
Sugar Lee, their high-spirited, determined leader, has her hands full keeping the women motivated. The comic tension mounts when an ex-boyfriend shows up unexpectedly, a marriage proposal comes from an unlikely suitor, and Sugar Lee's archrival vows to stop at nothing to steal the spa away from her. By the time the women rally together to overcome these obstacles and launch their new, improved lives, you've got a side-splitting, joyful comedy that will make you laugh out loud and shout "Hallelujah!"
