Yoga classes will meet all Wednesdays in June. We will not meet in July but will resume on Wednesday, Aug. 9.

We are offering two classes:  Focused 45 and Chair Yoga. Focused 45 will start at 9:30 a.m. with participants arriving and getting settled at 9:20. Focused 45 is very active and offers a wide range of unassisted movements and poses. Participants for Chair Yoga will arrive at 10:20 to set up for a 10:30 class start time. Chair yoga offers the support of the chair for participants and the use of the chair as a prop for those who want to stand for certain poses. Contact the instructor, Dianne Hunter, for any questions.

A HUGE THANK YOU to everyone who participated, in any way, with our Earth Day Parish Work Day. So much was accomplished and so many new relationships were GROWN! A new Magnolia tree is now in front of the Narthex, a new planting bed was started on the north side driveway, the Hosta Garden was mulched and bordered. A donation box for Christoph and his family yielded great rewards; Such generosity! If anyone would like to be on our Garden Crew, to continue to plant and weed and grow new friendships, please contact me and I will add you to the list. Earth Day Parish Work Day was much more FUN than Work. What a blessing you all are to this Parish. Thanks to parishioner Bob Coffey for the photos.

"O heavenly Father, who hast filled the world with beauty: Open our eyes to behold thy gracious hand in all thy works; that, rejoicing in thy whole creation, we may learn to serve thee with gladness; for the sake of him through whom all things were made, thy Son Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen." -Book of Common Prayer
