New Old Adventure

The New Old Adventure kicked off its inaugural season in June 2018, recording a fabulous year of learning, growing, and connecting. Even in the midst of a polar vortex and record snowstorms, we met and learned from our speakers and from each other. After this excellent start, the planning team, with three new members, has another invigorating program year planned.

We invite all our church members to come and join us. The reality of aging transcends generations. We all know someone who is facing the joys and challenges of aging.

We will begin each of our sessions at 11 am, have a light lunch at 12 pm (soup, salad, and bread), and conclude by 1 pm. The intention of this program is to combine fellowship, connection, and learning with nourishment for our mind, body, and spirit.

Upcoming New Old Adventure events are listed in the sidebar.

Magnet Senior Center

When the Skyway Senior Center closed, library and church leaders recognized the need to provide a place for seniors to go to socialize and interact with others. The Magnet Senior Center, run by both Westminster Presbyterian Church and the Minneapolis Central Library, was born.

At the Center, seniors living in the Minneapolis downtown area gather and meet other seniors, engage in health and wellness programs, discuss history and current events, play games, make crafts or just enjoy a relaxing cup of coffee in a welcoming setting.

Events and activities are free and vary by day. Seniors can choose to participate in an activity or just sit and relax with a cup of coffee, a cookie and a newspaper. Seniors of all faiths are welcome to stop by for all or part of the morning, as often as they like. The program is drop-in; No reservations are required.

The Magnet Senior Center is open four days a week. Individuals age 55+ of all faiths are welcome.
