Yoga with Tish

Yoga with Tish

If you would like to try Yoga to help improve your core strength, balance, and ability to relax, please join a small group that meets in the Meditation Room in the RE building on Tuesday evenings from 5:15 to 6:30PM.

Your first class is free of charge – I feel it’s important that you get a chance to try it before you invest in a series of classes. The class is a mixture of breathing techniques and yoga poses that flow from one into another. You do not need to be trained in yoga or have attended the last session to attend this series of classes. Go to www.YogaWithTish for more information.

4th - 6th Grade Our Whole Lives Classes
Jan

9:30 AM09:30

4th - 6th Grade Our Whole Lives Classes

4-6th Grade Our Whole Lives

4-6th grade O.W.L. begins January 27th and runs on Sunday mornings from 9:30-10:45 through April 7th, with the required guardian orientation on January 13th at 1:00.

O.W.L classes will impact Religious Education in the following ways:

Pre K-1st grade class will not be impacted.

2nd-4th grade class will be held as normal, minus the children participating in O.W.L.

Junior/Senior Youth class WILL NOT BE HELD! If you have a child who comes to the Junior/Senior Youth class they are encouraged to participate in O.W.L if age-appropriate. If they are not within the age limits they can assist in one of the other R.E. classes. This would be a wonderful opportunity to be a role model for the younger children in our congregation!

Adult R.E. 2 will be transformed into the guardian parallel class. For the first time, guardians who have children in the O.W.L class have the opportunity to participate in the same curriculum. Our hope is that this will foster open and trusting communication at home!

Christmas Day Dinner

On Christmas Day from 1-5PM in the Fellowship Hall we will have a potluck meal at the church.   Bring your board games, playing cards, and puzzles...

If you'd rather contribute with cleanup instead of bringing a dish, that would work, too.  Also, consider bringing extra Gladware/Tupperware to tote home possible leftovers.
