Daily 10,000 people reach the age of 65. By 2030, one in five Americans will be over 65, by 2035 there will be more people over 65 than under the age of 18! The Baby boomer and older generations are to be mobilized for ministry! Rather than retirement, we seek to re-tool, re-invent, and re-imagine what God may have for us in this season of life as we are challenged to participate in minstries by, with, and for older adults.
Crescendo is not a program; it's a mindset. It's not an activity; it's an attitude. Each month Crescendo will offer opportunities for older adults to grow in all of these areas as they walk with Jesus and build His kingdom in this fruitful season of life.
Hear from several people in our community who deal as professionals with those suffering with mental health issues. “Mental Health” is a buzzword that you hear a lot, but what does it truly entail? How do I know if I or someone I love is suffering from conditions of mental health? How could I get help or be help for someone? Explore the topic, get informed, connect with others who can help you and those you love. Coffee and sweets provided; sign up to help bring food items with Lynn Black.
