PrimeTime: Older Adults at Central
PrimeTime serves adults who are age 55 and older in our older adult ministries. The older adult ministry at Central is called “Prime Time.” Prime Time meets every month (except during the summer months of June through August) on the second Wednesday of the month.
Sometimes monthly meetings are held in the church fellowship hall. At other times, Prime Time plans off-site adventures. Past adventures have included trips to the Billy Graham Library, Johnson & Wales Culinary School, Levine Museum, Flat Rock Playhouse, and Duke Gardens. Over night trips have included; Charleston, Savannah, Williamsburg, Washington, DC and Asheville.
Prime Time meetings held at the church begin at 10:30am with a program. A delicious lunch is served immediately after the program. Reservations are required by contacting Elaine Braziel. The reservation deadline is announced in the church email blasts and in the announcement section of the weekly worship bulletin. If you are unable to attend the luncheon after making a reservation, Prime Time kindly asks for reimbursement for the meal to cover expenses. The all inclusive cost for meals at the church is $10.00.
Prime Time programs vary from month to month but are always geared toward the audience. Past programs have included Scam-Proofing Your Life by the Better Business Bureau, information on area resources such as Hinds’ Feet Farm in Huntersville, NC, and a slide presentation from local author and Central church member, Char Solomon, on her book, Tatiana Proskouriakoff: Interpreting the Ancient Maya. Church member Michael Eury presented the 75-year history of Superman along with the religious alligorical implications.
Off-site trips are planned well in advance and cost information is communicated via the church email blasts and the announcement section of the weekly worship bulletin.
