For seniors, retirement can be a time to reevaluate, reflect and reinvent. Choosing the right group Bible study can help seniors take stock of where they have been, where they are and where they are going in life. Use Bible-study lessons to reteach familiar truths in new and appealing ways to seniors looking for more as they begin this new chapter in their lives.
Revisit the heroes of the faith as they dealt with life challenges and adversities to strengthen your Bible-study group’s faith during times of crisis. Life’s autumn years can be filled with health struggles, financial struggles and faith-testing issues on an almost-daily basis. Revisiting the story of Job, who lost everything he had ever worked for and still remained faithful; Joseph, who was betrayed by his brothers and sold into slavery; and the Apostle Paul, who ended up in prison for his faith, can provide seniors with the right perspective when their faith is challenged.
