Baby Boomer Event

All Baby Boomers will be invited to a Good Shepherd get-together on Sunday, September 20, at 5 p.m. at Julie and Jeff Burrows’ house. Hors-d’oeuvres will be served.

The purpose of the gathering is to discuss these questions:

  • What is God calling us to in our retirements?
  • How is God calling you to make a difference?
  • How can God use the gifts you bring to the table in  the “second half”?

Three Good Shepherd members - two who are retired and one who has not started in his second half of life - will share their thoughts about the ways God has called them to make a difference.

  • Julie Burrows will talk about the way God called her to start UpTurnships, a nonprofit designed to help youth in their focus and abilities in the job market.
  • John Mendesh will talk about his continuing ministry in Africa.
  • Rob Albright (not even close to a Boomer) will talk about the burning passion in his life - equality in education.

Pastor Debra Samuelson explains that, for this gathering, “my role is one of creating space and perhaps spurring interest in faith-based discussions about ‘what’s next”- allowing people to dream.

If you’re in that Boomer age group, please join in the conversation.

Please RSVP using this form. Thank you!
