Fellowship begins at 11:15 a.m. with lunch at 11:30 in the Colhoun Room. The program begins at noon. The cost is $6.00. No reservation is necessary. All are welcome.

Senior Trip to Kanuga

St. Paul’s Senior Adults will visit Kanuga Conference Center Thursday and Friday, October 18 and 19, staying at the Kanuga Lake Inn.

The group will travel by coach bus, leaving the St. Paul’s parking lot at 8:30 Thursday morning and arriving at Kanuga in time for lunch.

After lunch, Activities Director Nate Williams will lead a moderately strenuous walk to the waterfalls in Dupont State Forest next door to Kanuga. Group members are also free to enjoy the afternoon on their own at Kanuga.

After a 5:00 p.m. reception, followed by dinner, the group will enjoy game night, featuring bridge, Chronology and other favorite card and board games.

Following breakfast at Kanuga Friday morning, after some free time, the group will take a LaZoom Asheville tour featuring sights of the city as well as entertainment by actors.

The group will enjoy lunch catered by 67 Biltmore on the way home. The bus is expected to arrive back in Winston-Salem by 5:30 p.m.

The total cost for the trip is $235 (double room) or $280 (single room). To reserve your place, mail a check to Senior Adults Minister Anne Rahn, payable to St. Paul’s with “senior Kanuga trip” noted in the memo line. Include your roommate’s name if you choose a double room.

La bohème

This event is sold out. 

St. Paul’s Senior Adults Ministry will take a group to see and hear Piedmont Opera’s production of Puccini’s La bohème at The Stevens Center of the UNCSA on Sunday afternoon, October 28.

A passionate, timeless story of love among young artists in Paris, La bohème is among the world’s most popular operas. Depicting the joys and sorrows of love and loss, the opera reveals the deep emotional significance hidden in the trivial things—a bonnet, an old overcoat, a chance meeting with a neighbor—that make up our everyday lives.

The group will meet in the side parking lot at St. Paul’s at 1:30 p.m. and travel by bus to The Stevens Center. To reserve your place, send a check for $62 per person to Senior Adults Minister Anne Rahn. Contact Anne at (336) 723-4797 or arahn@stpauls-ws.org.

Brunswick Stew

Just in time for Thanksgiving, St. Paul’s Senior Adults will cook a batch of Brunswick stew, ready for pick-up outside the kitchen after the 9:00 and 11:15 a.m. services on Sunday, November 18, or by special arrangement with Senior Adults Minister Anne Rahn.

The stew, which must be ordered and paid for by Tuesday, November 13, is $13 per quart.

Download an order form and mail it, with your check, to Anne. Printed order forms are available at the back of the nave, outside the chapel and at the reception desk. Contact Anne at (336) 723-4797.

An Old Salem Christmas Carol

St. Paul’s Senior Adults Ministry will take a group to see “An Old Salem Christmas Carol” on Sunday, December 9, at the McChesney Scott Dunn Auditorium at SECCA. The St. Paul’s bus will leave the side parking lot at 1:30 p.m.

This world premiere adaptation of the Dickens classic with a local twist was written exclusively for The Little Theatre of Winston-Salem.

It’s 1887, and hard times have fallen on the people of Winston and nearby Salem. Tobacco rolling machines are replacing manual jobs, and heavy rains have hurt farms. Making things worse is Ebenezer Scrooge, a mortgage lender who has no holiday spirit. In the heart of Old Salem, can three spirits teach him the true meaning of Christmas?

To reserve your place, send a check for $23 per person to Senior Adults Minister Anne Rahn. Contact Anne at (336) 723-4797 or arahn@stpauls-ws.org.
