The Primetimers is a group of older adults who are really on the go!
In the past few years, the Primetimers have taken trips to Van Buren for a train ride, strolled through Garvan Woodland Gardens in Hot Springs, and went shopping at the Holiday House Christmas event in Little Rock. These trips usually involve a small fee (for tickets, gas and meals). For more information, call the church office at 501.329.3801.

Who are the United Methodist Women?
They are women like you. Women of diverse ethnic and socioeconomic backgrounds: employed, not employed, housewives, business women, retired women, single, married, divorced, widowed, young, middle-aged, and older women. Meetings are scheduled to provide an opportunity for all members to attend some or all Unit and Circle meetings. Circles meet monthly at various times and places. Unit meetings bring together all Circles and others for study, worship, business and fellowship. Childcare is available during Unit and Circle meetings when requested in advance.
