About Shepherd's Center:

First UMC in Fort Scott is partnering with the national network of Shepherd’s Centers to provide educational and social opportunities that bring older adults together.


Our signature Adventures in Learning program supports personal growth and discovery with courses, cultural enrichment workshops, hobby and recreational opportunities. Currently held on a periodic basis as we grow the program, subjects cover a wide range of topics: computer and technology, finance, literature, music and art appreciation, world religion, “how-to,” politics, current events, historical events and figures, foreign languages, hobbies, and so much more. Most class instructors are retired older adults, with a number of special interests presented by community experts.


Shepherd’s Centers counteract the negative effects of loneliness and isolation by connecting older adults to empowering programs that foster friendships.
