Encore is Trietsch's Senior Adult Ministry for people in their sixties and beyond. This is a new ministry founded by Rev. Don Kirsch, Senior Adult Ministry Coordinator, in which he hopes to help folks who are 65+ spiritually, relationally, and socially connect. Why Encore? Well, a few years ago when Pastor Don retired (again), he picked up a book entitled Encore: Finding Work That Matters in the Second Half of Life to find some inspiration for what could be next in life. He learned much from this book and was inspired by the word "encore."
An encore is a time to commend and reflect on all of the hard work, beautiful moments, and joy that you have experienced. But the encore is not an afterthought! After all, most musicians and artists save their best work for the encore. Encore is not a stereotypical ministry for senior citizens; it's a time for senior adults to continue celebrating, growing, and serving in God's love. After all, God's love for you never retires!
More information is coming soon about Encore. If you have questions or suggestions, please contact Rev. Don Kirsch at firstname.lastname@example.org. In the meantime, scroll down to learn more about Pastor Don!
