Encore Events

Another facet of Encore is the monthly program events held the first Tuesday of each month at 2:00 p.m. in the Family Life Center at Bethel. These events, ranging from music to media to focused presentations, are planned to meet the needs of senior adults. Frequently these events include favorite destinations and organized travel with the specific goal of interactive fellowship and community; a real taste of the fellowship we will have with the Lord and the Church forever!

Upcoming Events:

All events unless specifically stated are in the Family Life Center at Bethel at 2:00 p.m. unless otherwise noted.
