Making retirement purpose-filled doesn't happen by accident. Instead, it flows from our decisions & actions, day-to-day, and year-by-year. Have you carefully examined how you will live each day with purpose?
In this two-hour class, you'll work with table partners to start the process of transforming your vision for post-retirement living into a flexible plan of action. Preparation will require 2-3 hours of guided pre-work (thinking and writing) to get ready for the workshop. This class will be offered online and at Resurrection's Leawood location.
This class is taught by Scott Weaver, who is an executive coach and facilitator with Academy Leadership, helping those in executive management enhance performance at all levels within their organizations by developing leaders who deliver results. During the past four years in this role, Scott has combined his professional experience as a leader in both the military and non-profit organizations in working with others to assist them in becoming more effective leaders and improving their organizations.
He brings 20+years of success in leadership, global program and project management in organizations ranging up to 125,000 employees and $12 billion in budget. He also has 10 years’ experience as a college educator and administrator: U.S. Military Academy, U.S. Army Command & General Staff College, Army Management Staff College, U.S. Army War College.

How quickly could you locate important personal information and documents if an emergency occurred? Do your loved ones know where to find your personal and financial records if something were to happen to you? Is it a challenge for you to find essential documents when needed because they are stored in different locations or you’ve forgotten where you put them?
This 3-session class is designed for all ages so that you can take important steps to get your personal information organized. You’ll receive a Binder for Life and we’ll help you with a plan to compile all your critical information and documents in one place. We’ll help you determine what you need and why you need it.
Each class will cover key areas and you’ll start building your Binder For Life so you and your loved ones are prepared for unexpected events, medical emergencies and end-of-life matters. Please invite your non-Resurrection friend or family member.
$15 due at time of registration. **If you live more than 20 miles away from the Leawood Location, binder inserts will be mailed to you, but we ask that you purchase a three-inch, three-ring binder.
For questions about Binder for Life (Personal & Financial Organizer) | November 2021 call Angie McCarty at (913) 544-0724, or email using the form below.
One of the greatest gifts you can offer your loved ones is a plan for how you will be remembered. Having the Last Word will guide you through how to plan your last wishes. Rev. Steve Langhoffer and Judith Pirker will help you become educated about your memorial service or funeral pre-planning. (Do you know the difference between the two? You'll learn about that, too.) Best of all, you'll have confidence in your end of life memorial preparations.
This course will be held on November 9 & 16, from 6:30-8:30 on Zoom.
