I’m Too Old for This! Teaching Series

Join us in person or online each Sunday from January 16th to February 20th as we begin a new teaching series in worship we’re calling, “I’m too old for this!” Aging is a universal condition (unless your Tom Brady) that brings with it unique sets of joys and challenges. Each week we will engage our scriptures and cover topics about improving intergenerational relationships, caregiving, living on a fixed income, Alzheimers, grief, and finding purpose in our lives as we age. You can join us in our sanctuary at 10am each Sunday or stream our service on our Facebook or Youtube pages.  We also encourage you to prepare for worship each with study guides that go with each topic.  You can find them below and we look forward to seeing you!
