O.W.L.S.S.

The Organization of Older Wiser Loving Seniors Support (OWLSS) offers an active alternative to inactivity for people retired and/or 50 years old. Through involvement, fellowship, mutual support, life enrichment activities and service to others, OWLSS members are encouraged and helped to be all that they can be.

Why become a member?
Being a part of OWLSS will provide opportunities for Christ-centered involvement that will enrich your life.
 

Nursing home ministry
The nursing home ministry is an outreach program to the un-churched in nursing homes. This is an opportunity to share the Word with the promise of a Savior who died for all sinners and ensures a heavenly home for all believers. Instructions and devotions will be provided to chapters and members-at-large who would like to participate.
 

Gospel outreach
“For God so loved the world that he gave his one and only Son, that whoever believes in him shall not perish but have eternal life” (John 3:16). This is reason enough to be involved in evangelistic outreach. In word and deed, members of this organization share the gospel through individual and group efforts and by supporting the evangelism work of the congregation and synod.
 

Crossing generations
Christians with lots of life experience have much to offer young people and can also find great blessings in working with them.

Endowment
When a person has used and enhanced his or her gifts and abilities over the course of many years, it is not only good stewardship but an extension of godly love to share such skill and knowledge with others. Wills and estate planning and charitable gifting are part of Christian stewardship and God-given opportunities to put love and faith into action for one’s family as well as for the Lord.
 

Spiritual growth
This organization is keenly aware of the need for continual spiritual growth. Retreats, and workshops all provide a rich source of encouragement, fellowship, and information that is part of that growth. The organization’s spiritual advisor writes a message for each issue of the newsletter, New Horizons, mailed to members four times each year.
 

Cultural growth
An active and fulfilling life involves the whole person. The mind as well as the body and should must be fed. Tours like the “arm-chair” tours at convention or vacation tours planned with a Christian agency provide members with God-pleasing activities that contribute to the nourishment of the mind.
 

Personal growth
The OWLSS know how to have fun and appreciate the lighter side of life as much as anyone. Recreational activities are a regular part of its activities. Hobbies, collectibles, and items from the past are shared at conventions, and new ideas for personal growth are presented at workshops and hostels and in the newsletter where a good joke can always bring a laugh.
 

Sharing
When a person has used and enhanced his or her gifts and abilities over the course of many years, it is not only good stewardship but an extension of godly love to share such skills and knowledge with others.
