Who Are the Boomers? Wednesday, October 4 | 6:30 pm, Central (7:30 pm, Eastern; 4:30 pm, Pacific) Born from 1946 to 1964, boomers have revolutionized every aspect of American life. As they move into their second half of life, they face new challenges as they age. This webinar helps participants understand those challenges.
The Spiritual Roots of Boomers Wednesday, October 11 | 6:30 pm, Central (7:30 pm, Eastern; 4:30 pm, Pacific) Formed in the crucible of the 1960s and 70s, boomers still experience their spiritual roots of brokenness, loneliness, rootlessness, and self-seeking; and those roots affect boomers and younger generations today.
Boomers and the Search for God Wednesday, October 18 | 6:30 pm, Central (7:30 pm, Eastern; 4:30 pm, Pacific) Since their youth, boomers have been on an ongoing search for the divine. Encompassing the New Age Movement and the explosion of megachurches, the boomers' quest for the spiritual life has challenged the traditions of the past; but that quest provides great opportunities for ministry in the future.
A CEU credit of .3 units will be given to individuals who attend all three sessions of the Boomer Spirituality Webinars. Craig Miller will send a questionnaire to those who qualify. Once he receives the answers back, the credits will be rewarded.

RESOURCES TO CONNECT WITH THE COMMUNITY:
The Appalachian District Church Vitality Team has been prayerfully seeking ways to help support you and the ministries of your local congregation during this COVID-19 pandemic. Together they have diligently researched and connected with others throughout the conference and our denomination to identify resources and offer them to you. We hope they will be helpful to you and bless you greatly in leading your churches and communities through this unprecedented time. We are very grateful to the District Vitality Team and other contributors for their great work on this resource.
This faithful team has created three documents, two of which you are receiving today. They include:
- Family Home Worship – designed to help families establish a regular worship space within their homes as well as a time where they can worship together.
- Tech Strategies – to help guide you in selecting effective tools and resources within your budget to best communicate in the digital world.
We believe these resources will be of great benefit to you. Also know that the District Vitality Team is available to answer any questions you might have in regards to the documents attached. If you have questions, you may email Rev. Howard Fleming at firstname.lastname@example.org.
