Fun and Fellowship


Our goal is to grow in knowledge, faith and fellowship while seeking the Lord.  We will be offering events during the year with a variety of speakers and opportunities for gathering.  Through these opportunities we will learn how God has given us countless ways to grow, honor Him and how He leads us in ways we might never have imagined.

We will seek to serve others while seeking the Lord in the prime of our lives.  Our model for caring is our Lord Jesus Christ.  We will offer 4-5 service projects during the year, reflecting His love to those we serve.

We will plan and provide overnight bus trips for fun, fellowship and growth for all adult members and friends of Messiah.  Trips are typically 3 to 4 days long, though longer trips are sometimes offered.   Single day and single overnight trips will also be planned.

The ministry of PrimeTimers creates events that encourage and nourishes friendship, fellowship and fun.  We endeavor to foster an environment that not only enriches the spiritual lives of each member but additionally adds value to the lives and faith walk of the Messiah family as a whole.

Our ministry assists people who seek help in navigating certain difficult life issues on the Hierarchy of Basic Human Needs. Our Focus areas include:

  • Growing in Faith
  • Finding Life Purpose
  • Managing Money and Estate
  • Treasuring Home & Family
  • Staying Healthy & Well

We deliver our ministry in presentations by Subject Matter Experts (SMEs) and by providing easy access to external resources, reading lists, study groups, checklists, and counsel.
