Third Chapter – Spirituality as We Age

The "third chapter" of life is becoming, for many, a time of second careers, exploring new interests, developing neglected talents, and giving back in a myriad of ways. It can be a time of transition, letting go, wisdom, gratitude, discovery, healing, forgiveness, hope, and most of all, profound spiritual growth.

Our Third Chapter ministry helps us explore spirituality as we age. It takes many forms, including workshops, adult forums, book studies, and retreats on a wide range of topics.

3rd Chapter – Spirituality as We Age - hosts a variety of opportunities throughout the year addressing the spiritual, emotional, and physical concerns and interests for those aged 55 years and older.

For more information, contact Pastor Lois Pallmeyer.
