Group of older adults

ALOA sponsors and works with other organizations on a variety of events for active older adults. These gatherings provide opportunities for spiritual growth, fellowship and fun in relaxed, inter-Lutheran settings.


Lutherhostels are 4-6 day events held in retreat-like settings. They typically include a study topic, music and worship, along with recreational and fellowship activities.

SeniorFests & ALOAFests

SeniorFests and ALOAFests are single-day events, often co-sponsored by synods, districts, seminaries and other institutions. They include a featured speaker, workshops, music and worship.
