Adult Christian Education

Wisdom Keepers
The purpose of this  ministry, under the umbrella of Christian Education, is:
...to encourage older adults in the use of their skills in the church's minstry and outreach
...to bring about a better understanding and awareness of the needs and the skills of older adults.
. ...to nurture spiritual growth throughout each person's life.
...Together with other groups in the church, reach out to those isolated by illness,or loss of a family member.
...Enrich relationships and encourage respect for all ages.
 
The Wisdom Keeper Planning Team is: Geri Bartlett, Dwayne Barton, Kathie Farris, Jeanenne Glascock, Sue Kimball, Susan Tinder, and Jon Vernon.

The team had issued a survey of adults 55+ and is using that information to determine the needs and the talents that can be used in planning for the future. The team meets once a month and has assembled a large amount of resources, lists of possibilities for the ministry, and you will begin to see a greater awareness of the value of people in this age group. If you have questions or would like to be a part of the planning team, please contact Sue Kimball at 961-2493.
