Planning for Retirement (1)

Dear Leaders,

On October 16, the Southeastern Minnesota Synod will host a “Planning for Retirement” conversation. All rostered leaders who are 60 or older are encouraged to attend. This conversation will be held on Monday, October 16 from 9AM to 1PM at Assisi Heights. Lunch will be provided, so please be sure to RSVP by Monday, October 9 to

Topics to be covered will include:

  • emotional and spiritual planning for retirement
  • exploring the question “how do you know when it is time to make that transition?”
  • what it means to be on the retired roster (the privileges and obligations)
  • the possibilities for post-retirement involvement in ministry

Deacon Terri Endres from Portico Benefits Services will also be present to share with us some general information about planning for retirement. Please note that this does not replace Portico Benefits Pre-Retirement Seminar, but is meant to focus on some of the intrapersonal aspects of planning for retirement.

As much as we are hosting this conversation, we will also participate in it since we each anticipate our retirements in two years.

Please join us!

Bishop Steven Delzer & Rev. Susan Miller
