Goals of Primetimers program

1) Provide new service and learning experiences for older persons, offering opportunities for intentional education, faith-filled reflection, and cross-cultural appreciation in the context of Christian mission.

2) Serve the ministries of the UMC and its faith partners, creating informed interpreters of the mission and heritage of the UMC.

3) Strengthen relationships of the local church with those with whom they are in mission, enabling interaction with grassroots efforts to address the needs of "the least of these."
