“O.W.L.S.” stands for the“Older, Wiser, Loving, Seniors” who are members and friends of our congregation, the Centerville Church of Christ, Centerville, Ohio
Check-out the church’s web-site by clicking on it on our “Blogroll” on the lower right side of this page. Our map and location are there also. Any congregant or friend 0r Visitor who is 50-ish years or older, is automatically considered an OWL! Our “out-reach” recognizes also those “adults” who simply love to hang out with us and who would benefit us mutually in our fellowship. If you think that the theme for this Blog is probably our movies, trips, outings, meals, and other events, you would be partially mistaken; it’s mostly about relationships. Our’s are doing just fine, thank you very much; please consider joining us.
If you wish to try an outing with the OWLS for the very first time, you might ask any one of us about our“Happy Mondays”, noon til 12:30p.m. at the Burger King (near to Dayton Mall on S.R. 741) and then on just near-by to the “free” OWLS Movie Classics at the Centerville Church of Christ’s Family Life Center (see map) . That’s “every Monday” EXCEPT on 3-Day Holiday week-ends! A handful of us meet at noon at the Burger King on SR 741 near SR 725 by the Dayton Mall. Just remember, “What Happens at Burger King, Stays at Burger King!” Then at 12:30 several of this group will caravan about 10-12 minutes away to meet another handful at the OWLS Classic Movies at our church. The building will be opened to us at 12:30p.m. for the movie event.
F.Y.I: Also at our FLC every Wednesday at 11a.m., also at our Family Life Center, we offer an “Adult” Bible Study which some of our “Monday Classic Movie” fans have also attended. You are so welcome to drop-in for this friendly, biblical study and discussion of the Word of God. You will always be most welcome.
Like the vast majority of our activities, it’s NEVER about what the event, menu or what movie is showing, but about who we go to be with. It’s easy to check-out what’s playing today or in advance; just click on our “OWLS Classic Movies” Page in the list of Pages on the right side of this page.
Not that many age levels wouldn’t enjoy to participate, but we operate in a sanctuary where we can all manage our various mobility issues without concern for being bumped, line-cut or jostled by some-one else’s kids. It is the exception, not the rule, when-ever an OWLS event is opened to the congregation! We solicit everyone’s kind, respectful and courteous understanding.
This Blog is our pulpit, our megaphone and our communication for within and out-side of our small but active group of seniors. We’ll endeavor to share our activities and fellowship with each other and with the world thru this blog. This is also our heartfelt invitation to all “OWLS-lishly-inclined” Seniors come join with us in pursuits of fellowship and devotion to GOD and to each other.

Re: Revelations from GOD
This Daily Prayer is From: Ed’s Bookmark
“Just for Today”
Lord for tomorrow and it’s needs I do not pray,
Keep me my God, from stain and sin,
Just for today.
Now set a seal on my lips, for this I pray,
Keep me from wrong or idle words,
Just for today.
Let me be slow to do my will,
prompt me to obey
and keep me, guide me, use me Lord,
Just for today. In Jesus name, amen
Watch your thoughts; they become words.
Watch your words; they become actions.
Watch your actions; they become habits.
Watch your habits; they become character.
Watch your character; it becomes your destiny.
