Premier - 50+ Community

The 50 plus community of Greater Portland is coming together to Help People Follow Jesus Together.

It's important to feel connected, like the family that we are, which is why Premier is here to build COMMUNITY; organizing opportunities for us to be involved with each other.

We NETWORK through providing resources of interest to our age group. You will see informational seminars, hands on workshops, support groups and visiting speakers sharing in a variety of topics.

Our desire is to REACH OUT to each other, our friends and neighbors through planned events like the “Chili Cook-off” that was a blast last November.

We know how busy life is these days. Premier is here for you…. for sharing, growth and community. Don’t miss out on the fun.


Upcoming Seminars

Aging Well and Planning for the Future
Saturday, April 8
9am to 12pm

For baby boomers, it seems like just yesterday the main topic of conversation was play dates and carpools. Now it’s all about dealing with aging parents and their illnesses and cognitive issues, all while making room for a millennial to move back home.
Whether you are a boomer struggling with getting older, the child of an aging boomer, or find yourself somewhere in between - these seminars are for you. Come and learn about wills and trusts, Medicare, retirement planning, and more.
