Older Adult

The eXtra Years of Zest group is open to anyone 50 and older (or younger) who enjoy getting together for various activities that include visiting museums, historical places, the local zoo and Botanical gardens, movies, summer parties, arts & crafts, educational events and activities that promote spiritual and physical health. Events are updated on the website, as well as the XYZ bulletin board by the mailboxes on the administration wing of the church. We are happy to pick-up folks who cannot drive or no longer like to drive. Suggestions for activities are always appreciated. Please contact Lisa Cross, Lay Pastor for Older Adult Ministries for questions.

The XYZs are a senior adult group at St. Andrew, with Lisa Cross as the leader/organizer. Contact Lisa to suggest an outing/activity.

Upcoming Events

  • October 23 - guided tour of the Dismal Swamp in an air conditioned bus.  We will meet at the church at 9:00 a.m. for a 9:30 tour that leaves from the Suffolk Visitors’ Center located at the corner of W. Constance and N. Main St. in downtown Suffolk.  The sign-up sheet on the XYZ Bulletin Board indicates that the limited seats on the bus are currently full.  If you would like to be placed on a waiting list (in case someone who has signed up can’t go), please contact Lisa Cross, Senior Adult Leader.
