Welcome to Adventures in Learning!

Shepherd's Center of Topeka (SCT) is a volunteer seniors organization that enhances physical well-being, spiritual growth, and education for LIFE. We are solely sponsored by our members and 27 church congregations and parishes. As a nonprofit ministry we provide many small group activities free of charge, in addition to our capstone program, Adventures in Learning, quarterly educational sessions for the nominal fee of $30. People who choose to support our mission with membership ($30) are also eligible for SCT Travelers which take fieldtrips and an annual out-of-state vacation. 

All of this is made possible by speakers and performers who volunteer their time and talent; 22 community partners who provide food, space and programs; and the seniors themselves who take responsibility for the quality of our offerings.

SCT's office and Adventures in Learning is hosted at Lowman UMC, 4101 SW 15th Street, Topeka, Kansas, 66604. Small group activities are hosted at our other sponsoring churches. For more details, use the menu bar in the left-hand column to navigate our website. Still have questions? Contact the Director, Debra Stufflebean, at 785-249-3258 or by email: shepherdstopeka@yahoo.com.



     Must be 55+ to participate in SCT activities. 

     Membership is $30 per year, paid either as a $30 tax deductible donation OR by enrollment in at least one Adventures in Learning! (which costs $30 per quarterly session).  

      As a community ministry we do not REQUIRE membership to participate in small group activities, with the exception of SCT Travelers (fieldtrips and annual vacation). 

Your donations allow us to provide scholarships for Adventures n Learning when needed.

Our hope is that you will feel that the programs we offer to seniors in our community is worth supporting SCT with annual membership.
