What is Third Age?
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.
