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.

God in Our World, God in Our Lives

**  POSTPONED  **  New date to be determined at a later time
Camp Hanover

Join in a day of fellowship, learning, food, and worship as we explore God in the context of our environment. Through a combination of group activities, brief lectures, and table discussions, we’ll look at the latest information on what’s happening to our climate, then zoom in a bit to talk about ways we can connect with God through nature. The retreat is jointly hosted by Camp Hanover and the Older Adult Ministry.

“Life is a gift of God, and aging is a natural part of living, involving the whole life span from birth to death. Older adults are not a different category of persons, but are simply those persons who have traveled further along on the journey.”
