The righteous will flourish like a palm tree, they will grow like a cedar of Lebanon; planted in the house of the Lord, they will flourish in the courts of our God. They will still bear fruit in old age, they will stay fresh and green, proclaiming, “The Lord is upright; He is my Rock and there is no wickedness in him.” – Psalm 92: 12-15 (NIV)

As we get older, we face the choice of being fresh and fruitful or being brittle and barren. We can flourish and the best can be yet to come!

At Tabor College, we believe in encouraging people to pursue a lifelong love of learning—to stay fresh, green and fruitful. Tabor’s mission for the Lifelong Learning program is to enrich, educate and empower mature adults toward this end—in the environment of a distinctive Christian college. We offer this opportunity for people 50-years and older.

We meet on the first and third Fridays of the month. We try to select speakers and topics that will be applicable, interesting, entertaining and challenging to our audience.

The public is invited to join us on the Hillsboro campus at 9:45 a.m. in the ground-level lobby area of the Wohlgemuth Music Education Center. We hope that you will be inspired to connect with others and join us for our lineup of programs.

Registration, at the door, begins a half hour before every session. Semester memberships are $15 per person or $29 per couple. Others are welcome to attend any session for $5. Download the Lifelong Learning Fall 2015 brochure.

After the meeting, you are welcome to join us for lunch in the college cafeteria—a short walk past the Centennial sculpture. The all-you-care-to-eat lunch at $4 per meal is a deal you can’t afford to miss!

Reserved parking is on Jefferson Street, just north of the WMEC and is also available in the parking lot south of the library on D Street. A campus map may be helpful.

We are happy to answer any questions via phone (620) 947-0294 or via email at

Hope to see you soon,

Director of Lifelong Learning Program
