Boomer & Senior Celebration events are fun, inspirational times of gathering together for worship, workshops, lunch, and entertainment. You will be challenged and encouraged. You will laugh, make new friends, learn new things, and establish new plans and practices. Invite your friends to join you for this year’s Celebration!
Boomers (born 1946-1964) and Seniors (born before 1946) are valuable members of churches and Sunday Schools. They have many life experiences, gifts, and abilities to share. They are generous in giving of time, energy, and resources and often have a strong commitment to God, the church, and each other. For many Boomers and Seniors, three words have great meaning: serving, caring for people, and relationships. Those words have influenced this year’s Boomer & Senior Celebration events.
