Forgetting what is behind and straining toward what is ahead, I press on toward the goal to win the prize for which God has called me heavenward in Christ Jesus.
- Philippians 3:13b-14

The story that we write with our lives

We are a group of boomers, early retirees, and empty-nesters who want to make a difference for the sake of God’s Kingdom and for the flourishing of the world. We seek to energize and mobilize our generation to live lives of significant love, wise influence, and generous involvement. We envision this as a missional community, used by God.

This initiative is coordinated by Pastor Doug Whallon. If you identify with this stage of life and one or more of the above goals, please join us at our monthly gatherings!

Monthly gatherings

Within each evening we have 3 foundational segments:

  1. COMMUNITY: build friendships over food, conversation, and shared experience
  2. INSPIRATION: inspire one another and be inspired through teaching from guest speakers
  3. INVOLVEMENT: collaborate in various ways to make a significant difference (compassion and justice issues, ministry opportunities, or a mix of other interests)
