The Gift of Grandparenting
October 28, 2021 – Noon ET
Are those “Grand Days” here for you? What a gift from God to be a Grandparent (and for many, a Great Grandparent)! Join Sue Lennartson, Director of Adult Ministry at St. Andrew’s Lutheran in Mahtomedi, MN, on an adventure of exploring Grandparenting as it reflects elements of a blessing – a few ideas, lots of encouragement, some resources and igniting! Grandparents mentor, model, send a message, and minister to their Grandchildren at every age and stage. Jesus loves us all – here’s to the journey! We all need encouragement – let’s bring it – our kids are thirsty for the Living Water!

How Your Church Can Become a Center of Long Life Learning & Faith Formation
January 27, 2022 – Noon ET
We’ve become a society of lifelong learners with adults 60 and over engaged in all types of educational activities, both formal and informal. For example, Road Scholar offers 5,500 learning adventures, serving more than 100,000 adults 60 and over annually with a wide range of topics, formats and locations. Christian churches often have a majority of their members 60 and over. So why aren’t churches leading the way as centers of long life learning and faith formation? It’s time for churches to act! John Roberto, Founder of LifeLong Associates, joins us to present approaches, examples and resources for addressing the spiritual and religious needs of adults 60 and over. Discover how to engage this age group in meaningful, faith forming experiences that are easy to access and designed in multiple formats.
