Our goal is to develop strategies which will help inform older adults on a wide variety of topics: those relating to spiritual, physical and mental health, financial concerns, law and retirement issues, housing and transportation matters, volunteer and employment opportunities, and end of life planning.
Retreats and other events planned by the Older Adult Ministry create opportunities to gather and focus on particular age-related issues, with time for worship, learning together and fellowship.
A special emphasis week for those 65 and above was adopted by the Presbyterian Church (U.S.A.) General Assembly in 1992. This year the week begins May 7 with Older Adult Sunday. Begin planning your celebration of older adults now. Presbyterian Older Adult Ministries Network has resources to help. Their planning guide for 2023 is available now.
What does Christian vocation look like for the elderly?
God calls us to serve the world with our bodies—even when those bodies are failing.
