Active Adults ( Legacy 55+)

 

The Legacy 55+ Active Adults 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 themselves.

There certainly are differences between the 55-year-old who is still working, currently 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 active adult groups and to allow our group to continue to add to the kingdom.
