Second Half Ministry
Some people at Church of the Redeemer, finding themselves in the “Second Half of Life,” have come together to explore ideas for gatherings or programming particularly pertinent to this stage of life. “Second Half” is a pretty big umbrella – including everything from retirement or second career, to empty nesting, to other transitions (where we live, what we do, who we spend time with as our life circumstances and priorities change over time).
Our hope is that by gathering some “Second Half” folks together, we will have fun, explore possibilities, discover points of common interest, and create new connections.
you feel like you might be in the Second Half of your life, please join us for our special events.
Second Half of Life Ministry events are planned for 2020/2021 online via Zoom, with fun activities and interesting speakers to help people get to know each other better. Mark your calendars for:
