We are a group of retirees in the church, both couples and singles, that get together once a month and for a variety of events. We generally meet on the 2nd Monday of the month, but meeting dates vary according to the event. Any member or friend of the church is invited to join us. We meet from April to December as many of our members go south for the winter. Here is a glimpse of what we have planned for 2019: a potluck (we love to eat!) and card bingo; a trip to a Rockford Blues Concert on the Dam; a picnic at Silver Lake; a tour of Robinette's Orchard; a travelogue presented by Rev. Laurie; a retirement home tour; and, the annual Christmas potluck party.
The FCC Angels play in a local church league each Tuesday night from May to August from 6:30–9 P.M. Game locations vary throughout the season.
During the spring months, 6- to 8-person groups get together at home or at a restaurant for a meal and fellowship with lots of laughter.
