The Vintage Group - Provides fellowship opportunities for adults as an avenue of service and a tradition in our church. The goal of the Vintage Group planning committee is to provide a range of activities that may appeal to many adults across the church and in the community. Activities include exploring nearby towns (Aberdeen, New Albany, Eupora, Pontotoc, and more); museums (MS Museum of Art, Elayne Goodman’s home, French Camp), historical & natural sites (Hummingbird Festival, Sciple’s Mill and Boardwalk at Sky Lake), eating delicious meals prepared especially for us (Prairie Wildlife and Chef Bobbaie). See Vintage Brochure Fall 2017 for details.
The Lunch Bunch - The first Friday of each month this group gathers to have lunch together at a nearby restaurant. Watch the newsletter for details.
One activity that is growing in interest is the Starkville Community Theatre (SCT). A group that includes Vintage, Vintage New-B’s, and Vintage 2-B’s enjoy dinner and a show in fall and spring.
Each spring the Vintage group embarks on a trip. We have been to Crystal Bridges in Arkansas, Branson, MO to enjoy the music, New Orleans to tour the WWII museum and Nashville, TN. In 2018 we will take a 2 night, 3 day trip to Ocean Springs, MS, April 19-21. The itinerary will include the Walter Anderson Museum and the George Ohr Museum in Biloxi.
