Carol Yost, secretary for the Graceful Agers, said the group is the product of an outreach ministry the church started at least seven years ago.
The participants don't play bingo but they do play 500 and pinochle, for example, in addition to a variety of board games.
They also share a meal as anyone who comes brings a sack lunch.
The weekly event gives people something fun to do on a Tuesday in a pleasant environment.
