Westminster’s Third Age ministry (formerly New Old Adventure) welcomes everyone to join us! Our vision is for Westminster to be a more inclusive, interconnected, involved and multigenerational church. Through sustained, imaginative, collaborative and informative programming, the Third Age ministry provides a place of belonging for Westminster’s older adults to thrive spiritually, socially, physically and intellectually.
What is the Third Age? If life is made of three ages, the first age is youth, the second age is that period of time when career and family occupy most of one’s time and energy. Following that is the Third Age when there are often fewer commitments and more flexibility in personal schedules. This is the period of life that is our focus; creating programs for Westminster’s Third Age to thrive intellectually, socially, physically, and spiritually. We recognize that it is critical for people at this point in life to stay engaged, have social contacts, and a sense of purpose.
Our programs are typically held in the Meisel Room, on the second Wednesday of the month from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. September thru May and include lunch. For more information or to be placed on our email list, please contact Rachel Sheild or Rev. David Shinn. We hope you will join us in person or on Zoom!
