Senior Ministries

New Old Adventure

New Old Adventurers returned this fall entirely on Zoom for the safety of our community. New forums began September 16 with Tim Hart-Anderson offering insight into Spirituality and Aging during COVID.

October 14, we welcomed Aging with Gusto, an organization committed to encouraging more positive views on aging and increasing appreciation for how people of all ages contribute in their families and communities.

Westminster clergy led November’s forum on the topic of Grief in the COVID Era. On December 9, David Shinn will continue the topic with a conversation on Memorial Service Planning

As always, we welcome participation from Westminster community across all ages. We wish to eliminate barriers to participation as much as possible, so please let David Shinn or Rachel Sheild Gustafson know if you anticipate challenges using Zoom so we can offer assistance.

Magnet Senior Center

The Magnet Senior Center, run by Westminster Presbyterian Church and the Minneapolis Central Library, provides places for seniors to socialize and interact with other.

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.
