Forever Young

During the CoronaVirus pandemic, we have suspended all Forever Young events until further notice.  Since our age group is specifically targeted by this virus, I want to encourage each of you to closely follow Governor DeWine’s guidelines, whatever they may be from week to week.  In the meantime, please be mindful of others by picking up the phone and calling someone you know.  For those more techy, you might want to use Facetime or Zoom.  These are some of the best ways to spend our time during the quarantine. 

“They will still bear fruit in old age, they will stay fresh and green.” Psalm 92:14

Welcome to Forever Young, for adults age 50 or older.

In this season of our lives, our desire is to continue living lives of significance, realizing that God isn’t finished with us yet. Through our monthly meetings, we strive to continue growing in Christ-likeness through the Word of God, to deepen our relationships with others and to serve others within and beyond Grace Church. So come along for the adventure and remain Forever Young.

Widows of Worth

“Two are better than one…if either of them falls down, one can help the other up.”

Ecclesiastes 4:9-10

Widows of Worth is about widows coming alongside one another in their unique journey, because we are always stronger when we travel together.

Widows Helping Widows on the Journey is a series of classes offered in the Fall and Spring quarters to women who recently entered widowhood or to those who lost their spouse a while ago yet still struggle in their healing.  The class will be led by widows who are further along in their journey of grief.  We hope to offer comfort as you wrestle with the intense emotions surrounding your husband’s death, to give practical suggestions to resolve the new and unique challenges we all face, and to offer hope that, although life will never be the same, there can still be joy in your future.

Widows Communion Prep  What a privilege it is to serve the body of Christ at Grace by gathering together periodically to prepare the Lord’s Supper for distribution on Sunday mornings. Preparations typically take place once a month.
