Fox & Friendsview

Our Neighbors in Retirement

Community development with our neighbors in Retirement is a way of celebrating God's gift of all the seasons of life and, specifically, experiences of knowing and being known by some of our closest neighbors and biggest George Fox supporters currently living in the Friendsview Retirement Community, Avamere and other neighboring communities.

George Fox students and Retirement community residents come together regularly to encourage the dignity of God's image in each other primarily through building relationships and connecting generations through talent-sharing, life-experience and story-sharing (and  recording), and even some fun and games.

Sample of our past events:

  • Assisting with travel to GFU events
  • Game nights in the Retirement community
  • Story nights and Story Corps recording/logging
  • "Speed-Friending" event
  • Musical & devotional presentations from Fox students
