New Life Church is opening up a new community space where seniors can enjoy some interaction with others. We are inviting you to check out “Coffee and Cards” on Wednesday, February 15 from 10am to 12pm, hosted in the library room just inside the front lobby. It will be a time to enjoy a cup of coffee or tea and maybe play a board game (some available, or bring your own) with others or just have some conversation. It’s open to folks in the neighbourhood, especially a 65+ population. If you’re unable to make it, don’t worry, we hope to make Coffee and Cards a monthly event (third Wednesday of the month). So invite your neighbors and friends out for some company and your favourite board games. Looking forward to seeing you there!
