50+ Adults

Our reason for getting together is simply to share life with one another.  Designed for those over 50 but open to all, TopNotch is an open group welcoming all who are looking for more fellowship in their lives.

We meet regularly for a time of fun, adventure and fellowship. Events range from pitch-in dinners at church to bus rides for visits to attractions within an hour and a half of Bloomington. Most of the activities are the result of suggestions by members of the group.

When events are scheduled, they are promoted on social media, in the church bulletin and enews, and emailed to our TopNotch group. To join the group for emails, contact Connie: .

Sunday School Classes for 50+ Adults
Mar 23, 2016
Sunday School Classes

The following classes are popular with the 50+ crowd.

Living Stones

Members range in age from 50 to 80+. "We're like a big family. We get along well, sharing memories and good times together" says a class member. This is a large class sharing a special fellowship. Join us in the Chapel at 9:15am each Sunday.


This class meets at 9:30am in Room 361 and includes adults of all ages. About half of the class attends the 8:00am service while the other half attends worship at 11:00am.

Based on conversations with community leaders across the US, many aging adults are unaware of the available care options and programs that can help maintain their independence and quality of life. So we created a free resource that provides comprehensive information on topics like financial support and care options that are available.

Caring.com is a leading senior care resource for family caregivers seeking information and support as they care for aging parents, spouses and other loved ones. We have been featured by AARP, The Administration for Community Living, The National Legal Resource Center, and Forbes, as well as referenced by many governmental agencies and organizations across the Internet.
