Anytown United Methodist Church sponsors a regular monthly luncheon for older adults. In addition to the covered-dish meal, a speaker or program is held to entertain, inform and inspire participants. Normal attendance averages about 20, even though there are several hundred older adults both in the church and in the community. The pastor would like to get more people involved in this particular program. After all, it's the only ministry the church has for older members.
