Programs Overview

If you are not currently a member of our LifeTimers group, you are missing out on lots of fun. As LifeTimers, we “live LIFE fully for the TIME God gives us.” We warmly welcome Woodland’s members who are 50+ and their friends (we have a strict “don’t ask, don’t tell” policy where age is concerned, so don’t let that keep you away).

This is a great opportunity for enjoying a delightful lunch and getting to know others while being entertained by guest performers or speakers. LifeTimers also sponsors local day trips and extended destination trips.

LifeTimers gather together on the third Thursday of the month from September through May in Maresh Hall at 11:00 AM. (Except November when we meet the second Thursday)

A LifeTimers one-time membership costs $10; our delicious lunch is $5.

If your name is not on the regular calling list, please help us set up enough places by calling the church office at 210-493-4501 or contact Carol Hagler at
