The LEAD Team has been listening to each other and listening to you. Now it’s time to listen in our neighborhood. Over the next few weeks, representatives of local organizations will join us at 10:30 on Sunday morning to tell us who they are and what they do to serve their clients. Our first guest, representing the CARES Pantry, will join us on December 13. We'll have the President of the York Road Partnership with us on December 20. Come and listen.

Thursday Evening Meditation Class

Our first meditation class will be a 45 minute Yoga Nidra this Thursday, December 10th, 2020 at 7:30 pm to 8:15 pm. This will be a very relaxing meditation; turn off your video and listen to my voice. Yoga Nidra offers us many benefits and allows us to be more relaxed and better equipped to handle the difficulties in life. This class is offered to you free of charge.  It is my way to give back to our Church community, while helping us all strengthen and unite together. To join the class please click on the hyperlink below under Join Zoom Meeting, you may be asked to enter a passcode: yoga Looking forward to spearheading this class and making it a class that we can all look forward to each week; where we will focus on our breath, bring our minds too stillness, so that we can go inward and feel the grace and peace that lies within us all.
