We believe that social engagement, mental and creative stimulation, and physical movement are essential tools for successful living.
Three Sessions of 20-25 Courses each Session, offered Onsite and Online
- Light and Serious
Center members form a close community of friends supporting each other and the wider community around us. Onsite and online courses provide opportunities for members to share ideas, backgrounds, and experiences. Working together on service projects to support the community around us strengthens our own community. The Creative Quilting class has worked together to make over a hundred quilts for organizations supporting people in need, such as Chemo Comfort Quilts and Quilts of Valor.
We enjoy onsite lunches with entertainment several times each session. Some members bring their own lunches; most order a catered lunch. All enjoy the time for talk and laughter together.
Recent programs have included musicians performing Broadway show tunes, an opera singer who brought down the rafters, and trivial pursuit games that drove us to happy distraction.
- Holiday parties: Halloween, Thanksgiving, etc.
- Luncheons honoring sponsoring congregations
- Our own version of the SC State Fair

Trips will be resumed when health and safety permit.
The Center's Travel Committee plans jaunts to places of interest in South Carolina or close environs, such as the BMW factory in Spartanburg, Brookgreen Gardens on the coast, or Biltmore Estate in Asheville. We've enjoyed theatre at the Peace Center in Greenville and here in town. Trips are made via comfortable motor coaches and we stop at wonderful places to eat.
