Senior Ministry Outing to Museum of the Bible
The Senior members of Beltway Church of Christ were treated to a special trip to Washington, D.C. to visit the Museum of the Bible. On Saturday, April 15, 2023, the group met at the church building and were driven to downtown Washington by the group organizer and Chairperson for the Senior Ministry, Penelope Richardson. This field trip was a wonderful opportunity to provide an outing for our seniors as well as a chance to fellowship and visit one of the newest museums to open in the DC area.
The Museum of the Bible opened in November 2017. The museum has four floors filled with many artifacts and things to see and do. It offers a wide variety of exhibits and topics on the Bible. Exhibits focused on a variety of themes and topics related to Bible history, interpretation of the Bible in different languages, the influence of the Bible in history, and many others. Many of the exhibits were interactive. The top floor has a lovely outdoor space, with a wonderful view of the city. There is a cafeteria style restaurant on the top floor and a gift shop on the ground floor. You need several visits to take in all there is to see!
The group had a wonderful experience and truly look forward to our next opportunity to fellowship one with another!
