Tennessee church plans seminar on ministry to seniors

3/17/2009

Anyone involved in ministry relating to senior adults might want to attend the seminar “Living as a Spiritual Older Adult.” 

The event is scheduled for 9 a.m. March 31 at First United Methodist Church in Jackson, Tenn. The cost is $15 per person, and the registration deadline is March 23. No walk-ins, please. Call 731-664-8480 to register.

Marvin W. Cropsey, editor of Mature Years magazine, managing editor of The New International Lesson Annual and popular Bible teacher and retreat leader for older adult groups, will lead this three-session seminar.

Session one will discuss reminiscence; the faith past and how it all comes together in the faith that older adults experience in the present. Session two will cover the present; faith’s support of the present life and the concept that faith evolves in an unbroken, unified pattern. Session three will talk about the future; older adults’ faith needs and expectations for the future.  

This seminar is sponsored by the Memphis Conference Older Adult Council. Call Luci Cromer, 901-755-0803, for more information. This seminar is open to the public.
