The Senior Adult Ministry (SAM) is a monthly social gathering and service organization for all senior citizens of Glen Ellyn Bible Church. We visit local attractions, plan fun outings and share meals together. Seniors are encouraged to invite their friends for this time of fellowship.

Tuesday, June 26, 12:00 p.m. –  We will meet for lunch at London Grille at Windsor Park. After lunch, we’ll move to the Arts & Craft room to peel and sort crayons for SCARCE. Remember, this is a much-appreciated service we provide—as the similarly colored crayons are melted and put in colorful shaped molds for large crayons for the use of special needs students. Teachers love them, and SCARCE can’t keep them on the shelves! Bring a pocket or paring knife to make the peeling easier. We will have a special guest speaker, too. Come for the great fellowship as we serve together.

Thursday, July 26, 6 p.m. – We will meet at Wheaton’s Memorial Park on the right-hand side (if you’re facing the pavilion) of the grassy audience area. Bring lawn chairs and a picnic or carry-out supper. The Wheaton Municipal Band concert, starting at 7:30 p.m., is “Something for Everyone!” so a variety of band music. Come and enjoy this slice of Americana! Severe weather will cancel this activity. 

Tuesday, August 21, 5 p.m. – We will gather for our annual cook-out at Windsor Park’s Lakeside Terrace. Don’t miss this lovely ambiance, perfect setting for enjoying the beauty of the outdoors, plus good conversation, and sharing from a GEBC missionary. The grill will be going, but you need to bring your own meat to cook, plus bread/bun, if desired. Each person/couple should also bring an ample portion of favorite picnic fare for the buffet (salads, veggie or fruit plates, chips/dip, baked beans, etc.). Tableware, paper plates/cups, basic condiments, and cold beverages will be supplied. This is our 9th annual party at this special venue. We’ve never had to cancel for weather yet!
