Growing into Tomorrow… Today

Board of Pensions Seminar

August 16 - 17, 2018

Be informed, educated, and inspired for a journey toward wholeness in retirement living! Planning for retirement can be challenging, but it doesn’t have to be overwhelming. Our two-day seminar helps clergy and lay members and their guests explore steps they can take now to plan for their best retirement tomorrow.

The seminar is designed for members planning to retire within the next 15 years. Seminar attendees will

  • identify key questions for discernment in planning for retirement;
  • assess their finances, options for saving before retirement, and reasonable expectations for retirement living;
  • discuss healthcare options available through Medicare and supplemental insurances; and
  • create their next steps for wholeness in play, learning, and work; relationships; housing; health; and finances.
