  • Introductory Bible Study

    Mondays, 12–1pm in the Library Lounge

    We choose a specific book of the Bible and then do “deep reading” of that book, verse by verse, over the course of several weeks. We are reading to learn what we missed in Sunday school and what gets lost in preaching — to understand the Bible as the story of God’s people and their relationship to God and the world. We don’t always find answers, but we always learn from the text and from each other! You’re welcome to bring your own lunch. Come and see — it would be good to have you with us.

  • Tai Chi for Arthritis & Fall Prevention

    Tuesdays, 9:30–10:30am in the Library Lounge

    (resuming on September 3)

    Cindy Burger leads a Tuesday morning Tai Chi class here at the church. This free program is designed to not only be relaxing, but enjoyable, too! We use gentle Sun-style Tai Chi routines that are safe, easy to learn, and suitable for beginners.


    Tai Chi is an art and an exercise from ancient China that was created based on the laws of nature and promotes health and relaxation. Evidence has shown that the slow gentle movements of Tai Chi can help those with arthritis increase their strength, flexibility and stamina, reducing their pain and improving their balance to prevent falls. 


    This program was developed in collaboration with the Arthritis Foundation and is recommended by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.


    Instructor Cindy Burger is certified by the Tai Chi for Health Institute.
