Nehemiah’s Way – Jan. 14, 2018

Wondering how to rally yourself and others into action to make lasting change in a situation you find unacceptable?  We will look at the leadership style of Nehemiah for direction in accomplishing our heart’s desire and receiving support from others. Nehemiah led his people in rebuilding the walls of Jerusalem in a surprising short time. We will look at how he overcame opposition and motivated people including himself.

“They plotted together to come and fight … but we prayed to our God and posted a guard day and night to meet this threat.” Nehemiah 4:8-9

Affirmation: I pray about everything and then courageously move ahead.

Youth Yoga and Mindfulness Sunday

Our youth ministry brings the therapeutic and healing benefits of yoga and mindfulness to our youth. Starting in January 2018 we will be learning basic yoga positions combined with creative and practical mindfulness tools to use in daily life. The pressures of growing up in a fast-paced and “plugged-in” world do not allow our youth the opportunity to slow down observe their growing minds and bodies. With each breath, we will be cultivating a greater sense of well-being.

Eden Foster, a soon to be a certified children’s yoga and mindfulness instructor by the Mirador yoga and creativity school will facilitate class. The 2nd Sunday at 11:00 is Yoga and Mindfulness for our pre-school/elementary class. The 4th Sunday at 11:00 is Yoga and Mindfulness for our Uniteens and Y.O.U. (middle school and high school) class. Youth may join these classes at anytime.
