Our Beckley Center:

          What do we do at our meetings?  After coffee, snacks, and conversation, various activities and classes are scheduled and taught by volunteers.  Depending on our members' interests, classes can be changed or added as needed.  We also have a qualified volunteer there to take blood pressure.

          Some of the classes and activities we offer are:  Exercise, Art and Painting, Line Dancing, Needle Crafts and Quilting, Bible Study, Life Enrichment, Singing, Travelogues, sometimes Crafts, and opportunities to Share Your Talents. 

          Meetings are not held during Thanksgiving week, Christmas/New Years school and Easter breaks, or when school is called off or there is a two-hour delay because of inclement weather.  All seniors are welcome.  Please come and join us.


What are Shepherd's Centers?  
          Shepherd’s Centers of America is a national network of Shepherd’s Centers numbering nearly 80 Centers located in 25 states.  The organization takes its name from the Twenty-third Psalm, representing faith in action in the community.    
          Shepherd's Centers give hope to older persons as they explore their role and function in society.  While encouraging congregations to serve their own members, Shepherd's Centers enable congregations to work together to provide more effective programs and services designed to serve the whole community. 
          They are sponsored and incorporated by clusters of congregations of various faiths.  Other agencies and institutions in the community often become community partners.
