Over 200 Registered for Wooster ‘Day Away’

Apr 13, 2005

Pastor Bud Olzewski of the Rittman, OH, Grace Brethren Church, is coordinating publicity for the “Over 55 Day Away” to be held this Friday, April 15, at the Grace Brethren Church of Wooster, OH. Here is an edited version of his latest report:

It’s the last minute! Our Day Away is Friday, but anyone can still come. There are now OVER 200 REGISTERED! Please encourage your people – it is never too late to become a part of this great day in the Word and fellowship. We will take those who walk-in. But it helps to let the caterers know. If you do hear someone who is definitely walking in, you can call Dwight Stair, our registrar. Call him at Grace Campus South (Norton): 330-825-6291. But do encourage them to come, whether we know of them or not.

Just to remind you, we have a wonderful slate of upfront people: Dan Allan (our Moderator speaking twice), Dr. Randy Smith (speaking twice), Nancy Messner (piano mini-concert), Ed Jackson (sharing about his book and heart for missions), Herb Carr (reporting on The Canadian Adventure) , Terry White (leading congregation music) and Ed Lewis (being Ed, what else could he do?).

The date is April 15th for this Day Away – North of 55 event. It will be held at Wooster Grace again this year. Next year’s format will be slightly different in that we will have a great speaker (this isn’t new), and have several seminar speakers and sessions. It will again be an outstanding time together.

This is a CE National event intended to; 1) give awareness for older adults to remain active in ministry, 2) to remind them that there is a bigger movement across the country, and 3) to be a stimulus for getting churches to identify and equip mature adults into ministry.
