Older Adult

The eXtra Years of Zest group is open to anyone 50 and older (or younger) who enjoy getting together for various activities that include visiting museums, historical places, the local zoo and Botanical gardens, movies, summer parties, arts & crafts, educational events and activities that promote spiritual and physical health. Events are updated on the website, as well as the XYZ bulletin board by the mailboxes on the administration wing of the church. We are happy to pick-up folks who cannot drive or no longer like to drive. Suggestions for activities are always appreciated. Please contact Lisa Cross, Lay Pastor for Older Adult Ministries for questions.

The XYZs are a senior adult group at St. Andrew, with Lisa Cross as the leader/organizer. Contact Lisa to suggest an outing/activity.

Upcoming Events

The XYZs will meet on Friday, Jan. 11 at 2:00 in the Atrium for “New Year! New You!” January 11 is one of the Night Stay nights, so we’ll help out if we can. Then we’ll go to Cone Slingers so we can support a new local business. Cone Slingers, located in Carrollton with western theme decorations, serves homemade ice cream in a variety of flavors, hand rolled light pastry cones, shakes, floats, and sundaes. YUM!!

SAVE THE DATE: Friday, February 1 – meet at St Andrew at 11:00 for lunch out for Smithfield Restaurant Week. Suggestions for XYZ outings/events? Talk with Lisa Cross or put suggestions in her mailbox in the office
