“For every thing there is a season, and a time for every matter under heaven.”
Senior Seasons is a ministry of St. John's Lutheran Church, open to anyone in the community. The ministry provides fun and meaningful opportunities to senior adults who wish to grow and serve God's kingdom through personal enrichment, education, healthy living, travel, and community service. For additional information about any of our programs, please contact Diane Poole, Director of Senior Adults.
The Academy at St. John’s is an initiative of Senior Seasons Ministry. The Academy schedule offers a variety of educational courses and activities in the areas of spiritual growth, community service, personal enrichment, healthy living, and FUN!
In Winter 2020, Pastor Rhodes will lead the morning Bible study, "Faith and Science: Tough Questions, Surprising Answers." We will wrestle with questions like, "Creation vs. Evolution? Does it have to be one or the other?" and "Where is hell? … and other questions about the afterlife."
The afternoon course will cover a variety of science topics. You'll have a chance to hear from National Geographic's youngest explorer on desertification and climate change, a local veterinarian on pet acupuncture, and an educator about detecting harmful pollutants found in our workplaces, schools and homes.
The cost of the Academy is $30 per person for both sessions and $20 per person for one session. Checks should be made payable to St. John’s Lutheran Church with “Senior Seasons Academy” in the memo line.
Each week, a healthy lunch is offered for a nominal cost. Those who wish may bring their lunch. We hope our participants will enjoy fellowship with each other before, during, and after their classes and activities.
Parking will be available between the education & sanctuary buildings, in the lot at the lower level of the Faith Center or along West Council street.
