Live and learn. Learn and live.
Lifelong learning leads to a journey of healthy living.
Learning takes place on an ongoing basis from our daily interactions with others and with the world around us. While most communities promote lifelong learning as an intellectual pursuit, Concordia believes that true personal fulfillment comes from lifelong learning in mind, body and spirit – within ourselves, our community and our OKC neighborhoods.
Each day at Concordia, you’ll have the option to participate in a range of programs, such as learning seminars, volunteering, visiting performers, fitness classes and wellness programs. Or, you can join an organized outing with transportation — from live performances, to local museums, to shopping trips and seasonal community celebrations.
Do you like to spend your mornings or afternoons exercising, playing card games or reading? Do you have a talent for teaching and supporting others? Would you like to get back to volunteering? We’re here to reconnect you to past hobbies and passions and to help you fulfill lifelong interests and pursuits. We also look forward to introducing you to some things you may have never considered before. Concordia’s programs offer exciting and innovative paths for residents to pursue new learning opportunities, stay active and involved and remain physically, socially, intellectually and spiritually strong. There’s always something going on to fulfill your passion for learning at Concordia.
Resident Perspective: Beverly Langley Flourishes as An Artist
When Beverly Langley moved to Concordia, she brought a beautiful gift. She is a talented watercolor painter, and like any artist, she expresses herself through her work. Luckily for her, Concordia encourages everyone to explore their gifts and interests for a lifetime filled with discovery. And that’s perfect for Beverley.
“We should all seek or search for hidden talents we don’t know we have,” she says. “No matter how old we are, we can enjoy the gifts we’re given.”
Concordia’s commitment to learning is something Beverly has embraced, often using the art room for her studio and by helping her neighbors explore their love of painting by teaching classes. It’s another one of the many ways the community is made better by empowering residents.
Beverly has plenty of fans and support in the community, as well as a favorite quote to help inspire her work.
“When I stand before God at the end of my life, I would hope that I would not have a single bit of talent left, and could say, ‘I used everything you gave me.’” – Erma Bombeck.
