Second Half Ministries

Ministries meant for anyone fifty or older.

Our Second Half Group offers opportunities to connect, grow, and serve for anyone who is 50 years old or older. With special events scheduled throughout the year, there's always a new way to meet and connect with other members of the Second Half Tribe. If you'd like more information about the Second Half Group, you can contact Bob Evans at

Monthly Men's Breakfast

Men 50 and older are invited to meet at the Viking Chili Bowl (105 US Hwy 30, Valparaiso) on the second Monday of each month at 8 a.m. for breakfast and fellowship.

Second Half Trip to ONU

If you are 50 years old or older, join our Second Half group on a day trip to Olivet Nazarene University on Thursday, October 5, 2023 for Prime Time & Grandparents Day. We will meet at VNC at 9:30 a.m. and carpool to campus. We plan to attend the Prime Time Day Lunch and then participate in an afternoon of inspiration and music featuring special guests and the School of Music as they host the first-ever Olivet Hymn Sing.

Both of these events require tickets purchased in advance. You can purchase your tickets at or by calling 815-939-5258. Let us know you plan on attending by registering below.

Potluck Lunch

Sign up below if you are interested in joining the Second Half group for a potluck lunch on Sunday, October 8. We will be hearing from our Holy Land travelers on their trip this summer. Chicken, rolls, and drinks will be provided. Please sign up which shareable dish you will be bringing (hot dish, cold dish, or dessert). We will meet in the Youth Center at 12:15 p.m.

Christmas Party

On Saturday, December 2 the Second Half group will meet at Chicago Street Theatre at 1:15 for the 1:30 performance of “The Christmas Story “. Tickets are $17 per person.

After the play, we will head to the VNC Youth Center for food and games at 4 p.m. We ask that you bring your favorite shareable finger foods or snacks. We will also enjoy a Christmas game together! If you want to play the game, bring a nice gift ($10 minimum), but not over $15.
