New LifeGroup — The Middle  A new LifeGroup will start soon for adults who find themselves in “the middle”: midcareer, midstream, midlife.  It’s a time of more flexibility and freedom than ever before, but you may be part of the “sandwich generation,” supporting your parents as well as your children, or even grandchildren.  The Middle is a supportive, sharing group exploring the blessings and challenges of being smack in the center of it all. We’ll begin meeting in September.  Questions? Please contact Carey Adams at or 314-440-4374 for more information.  We hope you can meet us in The Middle!
