SAGES Ministry began as a group of senior SJA members who had retired or were nearing retirement and wanted to explore ways in which the collective wisdom gained by life experience might be shared with the wider SJA community and other seniors. The SAGES Coordinating Committee meets monthly to share learning, spiritual growth and to plan programs that benefit the SJA community. We work together and provide opportunities to share wisdom across generations and connect people who share similar values and also expand our collaboration with other ministries.

SAGES sponsors/presents workshops, retreats and opportunities for folks to gather, listen and talk. We are particularly proud of our Life Planning series, held each spring, with programs related to health, finances, and funeral planning. Watch the SJA Web site and bulletin for more news about SAGES programs and events.

2nd Monday Dialogues: Conversation Among Friends 
Our newest initiative to bring people together for friendly conversation and coffee. Dialogues will be held in Hospitality Hall from 1:30-3:30pm on the 2nd Monday of the month, September-May. Our hope is that it leads to fruitful conversation and ways to meet new people. We invite you and anyone you know; everyone is welcome. 
March 9, 1:30-3 pm.   Join us for coffee and discussion as we welcome audiologist. Jenny Nordberg.  Hearing loss affects relationships, self-esteem, and is related to dementia. Learn more!
