Aging Well
Third Sunday, from 10/20/2019 to 05/17/2020, 9:30 AM - 10:30 AM

9:30 a.m. | Chapel   
Facilitator: Liisa Ogburn   

Some stages of life and types of life events require us to dig deep and use our wisest minds to respond; taking care of our aging parents and spouses or even ourselves is one. In this class, we will tackle some of the most common and challenging situations with information and in fellowship.

Class facilitator, Liisa Ogburn will draw on the expertise of church members and local experts she has met through her twice-a-week column, Aging Well, for WRAL.
