In this space, we "visit" those who need pastoral care through online support. Those joining the group will come alongside those who have requested online visits for prayer and encouragement. Where possible local visits will be made, but as this is a global group, we may not always have a local member for a face-to-face visit.

This is a fellowship designed for seniors to get out and enjoy the world with locals and through reflecting their experiences online. Primarily for folks over 55 years old, but others are welcome as well. We will plan trips to senior centers to pray and support them as well as meet needs in our local areas. We may schedule trips to different parts of the world -- both for fun and for ministry purposes as well.

In this space, we will experience the psalms in many ways to lead us to God. We will sing the psalms, watch them sung, chant the psalms, listen to chants, experience prayer stations that use the psalms.

Contemplative Prayer

In this space, we seek to grow closer to God through contemplation. The contemplative tradition seeks to experience God, not through things, but through emptying ourselves, our minds of all things. Centering prayer is one prime example of this type of contemplation, as well as the fourth stage of Lectio Divina, contemplatio.
