These short video clips introduce tops involving older adult ministry or provide inspiration for older adults. Each one invites a follow-up conversation after the videos ends. We now have 29 videos, organized into categories of aging facts and trends, ideas for congregations and issues individuals experience personally as we age.
Bible studies accompany a number of our videos. Look for the Bible icon to see which ones. These extend and expand the use of ALOA videos, and make them resources for personal study or in congregational classes or small group studies. These studies can be downloaded and reproduced as needed.
