Primetimers is a group geared for Senior Citizens (generally 55+) and/or Retirees of all ages. They meet the 2nd Friday of each month at 12 noon at Rejoice Fellowship Hall. Meetings are generally 90 minutes including a scrumptious lunch, fellowship and a program or activity. Members take turns planning each month’s meeting, program, menu and passing a sign-up sheet for volunteers to help out the next month. Primetimers seeks to provide to Seniors: fellowship, food, fun, information and prayer support to each other. They also do outreach projects with the Angel Tree, Mosaic, serving at some events, and the Pumpkin Patch.

Skilled "sewists" (sewer/artist) will be available to teach and partner with you. No experience needed. Materials will be provided. The Sew and Sews work on projects that can be donated to people in need accross the world such as 32 pillow case dresses for little girls. We also sew quilts, we work with Lutherans and partners worldwide to end poverty, injustice and human suffering. Each Palm Sunday the quilts are spread throughout the Sanctuary, blessed, and shipped off to be distributed by Lutheran World Relief.
Women's Wednesday Morning Bible Study
Bunco is a social dice game, traditionally played with 12 players who are divided into three tables with four players at each table. But really, almost any number can play. At the end of every round, players change partners and/or tables. At the end of a game, there are typically multiple “winners.” The player(s) with the most Buncos, wins, losses, etc, may earn prizes for their successes.
LitWits Book Club
The LitWits book club is a reading group, usually consisting of a around 13 people who read and talk about books based on a topic chosen by each member. All members read the chosen book and discuss it at their monthly Book Club meeting. All are welcome! We meet in each person’s home or a designated area to discuss the book. The group meets once a month, the second Tuesday of each month at 7:00pm.
Our Care Team offers comfort to members who are ill, who are dealing with the loss of a loved one or who are just going through a tough time. The Care Team makes hospital visits, check up phone calls, takes communion to people who can’t get out, and prays for these people. The Care Team also has a meal ministry that provides several meals to people or families when they are in a time of need.
The Holy Smokers are the official bar-b-q team for Rejoice. We have quarterly fundraisers to cook for the congregation. We are also starting to get involved in cooking for the community as well. This includes the yearly Pet Blessing, Briarwood Cooking For Christ, Oktoberfest, and other events when Rejoice requests us to cook. During these events it is important to have men’s bible study while cooking.
