Senior Ministries

Third Age

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!

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.
