Celebration of Ageing Well – Uniting AgeWell Sunday

Drawing together all the festivities of October’s Celebration of Ageing Well is a Uniting AgeWell Sunday worship service. The service gives thanks for the diversity our residents and their families bring to Uniting AgeWell communities.  It is also an opportunity for congregations to acknowledge the UCA mission of assisting older people to age well in environments “infused with the Christian faith tradition”.

The Uniting AgeWell Mission Committee has made available resources including a PowerPoint presentation for the Order of Service, wording for prayers, blessings and suggested hymns, resources on the lectionary and a sample sermon.

Resources are available at http://unitingagewell.org/sunday-worship or by requesting a hard copy from E: JBroughton@unitingagewell.org.
