Golden Glows

Events, serving opportunities, and trips for senior adults.


Typically scheduled on the second Thursday of each month, this time of food and fellowship is a pitch-in lunch with special activities, speakers, and programs of interest. These lunches include devotions, Golden Glow updates, and a spread of food and are a wonderful opportunity to invite guests. They are typically held in The Hub and you may enter in through Door 2. For luncheon questions, contact Mark and Linda Baller at 260.273.6121.
