This ministry was formed to meet the fellowship needs of the Baby Boomer generation within the congregation as members facilitate friendships, support one another, and participate in occasional service projects together. Once a month, a group member organizes a gathering for a meal and fun activity either at their home or local restaurant. These gatherings often have a seasonal, holiday, or other type of theme like Halloween, Chinese New Year, or Pirates Day. These gatherings the participants an opportunity to catch up with each other while having fun. Service projects are also often on the agenda with the most recent event being the painting of the Fair Trade ministry space. Most Late Boomers members are from the Baby Boomer generation but all are welcome to join. For more information, please contact Loretta Williams or JoAnn Hartke.
