What is Third Age?623171_1

Our third age is that period in our lives from our late 50’s to about 75
years of age. This is the generation known as the baby boomers.

During our first and second age we grow spiritually but we now know that most of our spiritual growth and wisdom comes during our third age. This is the time of spiritual maturity and our spiritual wisdom is something that needs to be passed on to the younger generations. What a gift we have to share with them!

Here at GLC you will find a spiritually growing community of all ages and opportunities to share your spiritual wisdom and to benefit from the wisdom of others.

Join us for engaging and creative Worship services every Sunday morning at 10:30 am.

We have music groups and choirs for older adults, as well as Tai Chi and Yoga classes. The Westdale Seniors group meets the third Wednesday of every month, September – June.

There are many gardening opportunities in the gardens and community gardens at both Grace and Faith. Put your gardening talents to work or learn new ones. Volunteer with Hamilton Victory Gardens, Steps to Health gardening class, children’s gardening or relax in the healing/meditation garden at Grace Lutheran. Grow your own vegetables in the Bartonville Community Garden at Faith.

Below are some groups and organizations for resources for those 55+. We are excited to be collaborating with the group Aging Together. Here we learn how aging can be the Master Teacher in our lives. Watch Dr. Ellen Ryan’s video on aging here.
