New Beginnings: The Gifts of Aging

9/21/2014

How are older adults living their later years? This resource looks at aging in our society and provides a glimpse at a variety of creative church ministries that are being enjoyed by older adults. Lives are changing, transitions are occurring, and new beginnings are taking place for countless numbers of older adults in our congregations.

Filmed on location around the US, New Beginnings comprises individual short stories of older adults and the role their faith plays in their churches and communities for mission opportunities and teaching service.

Among the several short stories explored are feeding the homeless, tutoring children, visiting the home-bound and career transitions. (2005) 20 min.
