Description

MAPS is Mature Adult Programming for senior adults. (RESUMES February 2, 2022)

We believe God is calling us to share His love for Senior Adults in the Lexington area and in the surrounding communities as well, as to those within Grace Chapel. MAPS, our Mature Adult Programs, provides an enriching environment to senior adults by fostering spiritual growth, fellowship, and recreational development.  

MAPS meets on Wednesday mornings from 9:00-12:00 in the 2 Militia Drive building, in Lexington, MA.

We have an amazing group coming this Winter and the full array of wonderful classes.  And it all begins on Wednesday February 2!
 
Here are a couple of new wrinkles!

  • Speakers:  We have a wonderful group of speakers during the first hour and we have rearranged the schedule so that everyone will be able to come hear them.
  • Format:  We are shifting the format to have a refreshment time in the middle of our time so that everyone will be able to come and enjoy time together. 
  • Luncheons:  We are going to be having 2 special luncheons.  One on March 9 and a concluding End of the Year Party on May 11. 
  • Community Engagement:  As you may know, Pastor Richard's role at Grace Chapel is working to help our congregation serve the needs of those outside the walls of Grace Chapel.  He would like us to dedicate the last Wednesday of each month to doing Community Engagement such as writing cards to those who are shuttered at home or volunteering with one of our Regional/Community Engagement Partners.

MAPS meets on Wednesday mornings from 9:00-12:00 in the 2 Militia Drive building, in Lexington, MA. Room 205.
