Extra Years of Zest - XYZ

XYZ is an auxiliary organization of St. Paul Lutheran Church. Each confirmed member over the age of 50 is automatically a member of XYZ and is encouraged to participate.  Visitors and “snowbirds” are always welcome to join us.

THE PURPOSE of Extra Years of Zest is to bring the “young at heart” together for fellowship through potluck lunches, field trips, and special programs of interest.

Over the years some of our field trips included:

  • The Dead Sea Scrolls exhibition in Mobile 
  • The Zoo in Gulf Breeze 
  • The Naval Aviation Museum in Pensacola 
  • Eden State Park 
  • Chattauqua Winery Tour 
  • Daily News Tour


TWO OF OUR PROJECTS are the distribution of Thanksgiving Food Baskets in November and Christmas Food Baskets in December to 10 to 15 needy families in Niceville. Sharing and Caring provides the names of the families. With contributions from the congregation we provide the meat and all the fixings for a turkey and ham dinner and gifts for the children at Christmas. 

WE MEET the 3rd Monday of the month, September through May, at 12 noon for a potluck lunch and program. Remember to bring a dish to share.  In the case of a field trip, we go out for lunch.
