We are just getting started...we'd love to hear your ideas for more ways to fellowship, learn, and serve! Contact us at email@example.com.
Welcome to Second Act Ministries (SAM) at Bethany Grace Community Church, where we believe that the second half of life is full of possibilities and opportunities! Though our group is traditionally known as the "55 and up" crowd, we welcome anyone who identifies with being in the second half of life.
At Second Act, we recognize that this stage of life is no longer just about retirement. We understand that everyone's journey looks different, but we share a common desire to belong, to welcome others, to find connection and fellowship, and to continue learning and serving.
Our vibrant community offers a range of exciting opportunities to help you thrive in this season of life. From sharing meals and fellowship, to hearing from engaging speakers in our Guest Speaker Series, to day trips and special activities, to activities that take care of your mind, body, and soul, to service activities, we have something for everyone.
Join us as we come together to explore new interests, make meaningful connections, and continue growing in our faith. At Second Act, you'll find a warm and welcoming community that celebrates life and all that it has to offer. Come discover your Second Act with us!
