Dear Sisters and Brothers in Christ,
The Aging Well Team works to address the needs of the Older Adults in the Southern Province. We help congregations recognize the need for and then find meaningful ways of providing programing and resources for their members who are older adults, as they age and deal with a variety of challenges.
The Aging Well Team sponsors the “Senior Friends” Fall Rally and Spring Retreat. The 120 participants (from 20 congregations) at the Fall Rally in October identified their needs and interests via questionnaire. Based on those responses, the Team has planned this one-day Aging Well Conference, which takes the place of the Spring Retreat in 2017. With top speakers in their field, this conference offers very helpful and educational sessions for the participants! We hope you’ll join us on April 22!
