The vision for the Shepherd’s Center of Lexington, South Carolina
To change society's worn out myths about aging and help all older Americans live a life of meaning
The Shepherd’s Center of Lexington has the conviction that life is not over at retirement but opens a door to a new chapter of life. A life in which we continue to contribute to society, a time we learn new skills, make new friends, a time to find ways to serve others, a time to learn how to take care of ourselves, and a time to get connected in fresh ways within our faith community.
Like other Shepherd’s Centers around the country, we are non-denominational and partner with all faiths representing the diversity of our community. We share a commonly understood mission to empower older adults to use their wisdom and skills for the good of our communities along with the provision of health enhancement, cultural enrichment, and lifelong learning opportunities.
We are affiliated with the Shepherd’s Centers of America. All Shepherd’s Centers are nonprofit organizations focused on serving the needs of their local communities. We are a member of the Greater Lexington Chamber of Commerce.
The Shepherd’s Center of Lexington is located in the heart of Lexington County at the Lexington United Methodist Church, 309 East Main Street, Lexington, South Carolina. LUMC is next to the Lexington County government complex.
