Active Adults ( Legacy 55+)

 
The Legacy 55 plus group is an energetic group of Boomers (55-69) and Builders (70- ) directed by Pastor Phillip W. Looney, Minister of Intergenerations.  Plans for this ministry are as diverse as the ages itself.

There certainly is a the differences between the 55 year old who still works, has children in college, as well as taking care of an older parent, compared to the 80 year old retiree.  Our goal is to minister effectively to these groups and to allow our group to continue to add to the kingdom.
