United Church Homes Presents NEXT Steps

NEXT STEPS: Re-imagining Your Elderhood

Event Information

Offered in partnership with the Ruth Frost Parker Center for Abundant Aging and the Walker Leadership Institute of Eden Seminary, Next Steps is a gathering for adults contemplating or entering retirement, and for those who are recently retired. All program activities are designed to stimulate your individual self-discovery as you develop a personal plan for your new and meaningful chapter of life. NEXT Steps participants follow a 16-week process of self-discovery through readings, presentations, small group discussions, and discernment. All classes will meet via ZOOM.

By the end of the course, participants will have developed a vision and a plan for their next phase of life; their elderhood.

Rev. Beth Long-Higgins, Rev. Steve Lawler, and Jill Schantz invite you to an optional brief orientation to the course and introduction to the instructors on January 9, 2024 at 5:30 CST/6:30 EST. This meeting will answer questions of logistics, introduce the instructors, and generally try to make the opening day of NEXT Steps as smooth as possible.

The cost for the program is $500. Financial Assistance is available; email jschantz@eden.edu for information about financial assistance.
