Prime Time “End of Summer Bash” Recap
Hey Prime Time Seniors!
Thank you so much for attending the “End of Summer Bash” on September 29. We had a ball! The food was good and we enjoyed the opportunity to fellowship with each other.
We owe a debt of gratitude to Linda Rowe, who took the lead in organizing this event. As usual, she did a super job. Thanks, Linda.
We look forward to our next group fellowship opportunity…our Christmas party in December!! A firm date will be announced in upcoming newsletters. Stay tuned.
New Museum In Town
Have you heard about the new museum in Potomac called the Glenstone Museum? It is a unique museum showing contemporary art in a modern gallery building and an expansive sculpture garden. It is open Thursday through Sunday from 10:00am to 5:00pm. Admission is free. Check it out!
Don’t Forget about our new strength and balance exercise program in the ROC!
Join the Adult Exercise Time in the ROC on Monday, Wednesday and Friday from 9:30-11:30am. Around 10am, we begin a dvd-based series of video exercises to strengthen our entire body and improve balance. We all know that good balance and a strong body are essential for continuing to live an active and independent life. Additionally, good balance is paramount in preventing falls as we age. Come join us and get moving!
Attention families, we are working to put together a mission trip to Ocean City Baptist Church during the month of July. Dates and cost will be available soon, but begin praying about making your “vacation” a powerful family mission experience this summer. Beach time included! More info coming soon!
All men are invited and encouraged to take a few hours for meaningful work on Saturday, October 13. It all starts at 8:00 AM in the ROC Foyer, where we will enjoy a light breakfast and short devotional. Then we will gear up for some important church workday tasks.
Task 1: Install insulation and plexiglass in the Grace in Store room
Experience needed: None, though some handyman skills are helpful
Why this matters: The Grace in Store ministry is renovating a physical space that will become a thrift store for the community. Your efforts will help provide a comfortable environment for people – including low-income residents – buy inexpensive items they need.
Task 2: Run network cables in the Adult Ed wing
Experience needed: None. Matt J. will be on-site to oversee the project
Why this matters: Our church is extending its WiFi access for personal and teaching purposes. Your efforts will allow members to utilize WiFI and also provide hardwired access for our media equipment. This means reliable connections for teaching videos and new TVs being installed in some rooms.
The church workday is for all ages and genders, but these are some special projects we’ve carved out as important for our men to accomplish. Please RSVP by contacting the church office to help us plan breakfast and projects.
Cards and Games at the Conner’s home
On the 1st and 3rd Mondays every month at 1:00pm, join together at Carl and Lora Conner’s home for “Hand and Foot” card game or “Mexican Train” dominoes.

Saturday, September 29, the Prime Time Senior Ministry is sponsoring an “END OF SUMMER BASH”. The event will run from 1:00-4:00pm.
We will gather on the patio (inside the ROC in the event of rain) and celebrate the end of the summer’s oppressive heat and a return to our daily laid-back routines. You will not need to bring anything…just your appetites and a spirit of fellowship.
We will need your help in manning the sign up table after services (8:30 and 11:00) on Sunday,
September 16, setting up the outdoor area, a volunteer grill master, and, of course, returning the area as we found it. Please let Marilyn Jordan or Linda Rowe know if you are willing to volunteer. Many hands make light work for us all.
Prime Time is sponsoring a dvd-based series of video exercises to strengthen our entire body and improve balance. We all know that good balance and a strong body are essential for continuing to live an active and independent life. Additionally, good balance is paramount in preventing falls as we age.
Beginning workouts include:
- Gentle chair strength exercises while seated
- Stationary balances and seated core work while seated
- Walking and stepping balances using a chair
- Leg strength exercises
- Upper body strength and mobility (seated with hand weights)
- Lower body stretches
The exercise group meets in the ROC on Monday, Wednesday, and Friday at 10:15. We invite you to join us. Those who have been working with the video to determine its value have very favorable
responses as to its effectiveness.
So, Prime Timers, let’s get movin’!!
