Our core classes will be offered during three sessions per year. Electives will be formed on the basis of creativity, interest, and speaker availability.

- The Trip to Bountiful - We are all aging. Not a favorite topic for most folks past the age of 21. Scripture has a lot to say about how we mature in Christ. We will study Biblical examples of how God calls us at any age; the challenges of our ever changing circumstances and how families, dads, husbands, moms, wives, grandparents, sons and daughters can travel the journey together. Never alone. Themes that will be covered: Packing Your Bags, Asking for Directions, Where Am I - Are We There Yet?, Rules of the Road, That Wayside Picnic Table, Did We Make a Wrong Turn, Remember When, No Turning Back Now, and The Family Reunion. We will focus on practical help navigating aging personally, as a family, as a caregiver, as a church or just as a person who cares by providing resources, information, panel discussions, public and private assistance directories.
