GODLY PLAY:/LIVING THE GOOD NEWS

A note from Debbie Puglisi, Sunday School Coordinator
All Parish Worship will continue to be the first Sunday of the month. Godly Play students (pre-K through 5th grade) will meet every Sunday in the month, except for the first Sunday. Middle/High School students 6-12th grade will meet the 2nd and 4th Sundays of each month. There will be nursery coverage every Sunday. You can ask your child why it was such a difficult journey, and why Mary and Joseph were the last to arrive in Bethlehem.

Pilates Classes Offered

Come one, come all to Pilates with Sarah Roberts. This is a drop-in class at $20 per class or you can pay for 5 consecutive weeks (starting again in January) for $75. We meet in Dallinger Hall, on Tuesdays from 6:30 - 7:30pm. Pilates is a system of controlled exercises that engage the mind, and condition the whole body. The movements focus on strengthening the core muscles of the body, including the abdominal, back, hip and postural muscles. Regular practice results in improved strength, and greater flexibility, neutral alignment, improved posture and balance. This class is suitable for those who have had little or no practice with Pilates. Please bring an exercise/yoga mat and water bottle to class.
