CAREGIVERS SUPPORT GROUP
Are you caring for someone with Alzheimer's disease, dementia, or any kind of cognitive disorder? This kind of caregiving can be physically, mentally, or spiritually exhausting. That is why it is so important for caregivers to take time to care for themselves, too.
Karen Koenig, Executive Director of Olds Friends Club and Linda Whitesale, Director of Community Support for Alzheimer's Association will co-facilitate. Please contact Pastor Rita through the church office if you have any questions.
Garden Fellowship is a group of people who love to garden and want to meet other gardeners. The group has been a great opportunity to fuel a passion for gardening, meet new friends, and to serve others that could use a hand. Garden Fellowship typically meets the first Monday of the month at 7 pm in the Auditorium.
