Wit & Wisdom

Wit & Wisdom’s Mission Statement:
To demonstrate our love for others as modeled by Christ and to support Roswell Presbyterian Church’s mission by providing opportunities for our members ages 60 and up to enjoy fellowship with others in a variety of settings and activities; to celebrate and share our wit and our wisdom with others through service in all areas of church life; and to care for the physical, social, and spiritual needs of our members.

Wit & Wisdom is a diverse group of members and friends over the age of 60+, who enjoy travel, luncheons, theatre, and a host of other activities. Each month from September through May, the group offers a variety of day trips and other fun-filled events. Wit & Wisdom is a wonderful way to get acquainted with RPC members and to meet new friends. We hope you will join us for this year's busy calendar of events. New planning team members are always welcome.

“I wanted to stop time. So I hiked the Appalachian Trail ... Everyday was a surprise. Every week something in me changed -- probably forever,” says Ray Appen, Alpharetta newspaper publisher.

Come hear Appen’s amazing story about the extreme exhilaration and dangerous challenges hiking and climbing the 2,200 mile Appalachian Trail. Learn that the journey is as spiritually enriching as it is physically demanding.

After lunch, Ray’s photos and stories will take us along on his amazing journey and introduce us to a few of the hundreds of fellow hikers from around the world he met. “They were of all ages – from 17 to 85 -- girls, men, women, moms, grandparents, dogs, rednecks, and vets,” he says.
