• Improve sleep
• Decrease anxiety
• Reduce stress.

Every Wednesday, beginning October 16, at 2:00 pm we will have a Tai Chi class in the CLC. Cost is $5.

Power & Love Experience

Every Thursday, from 03/05/2020 to 04/09/2020, 6:30pm - 8pm

Power & Love Experience

Leader: Duane Davis | | 513-777-9533 ext. 114

John Donne wrote, “No man is an island entire of itself; every man is a piece of the continent, a part of the main…”
The apostle Paul wrote, “Now you are the body of Christ, and each of you is a part of it.”​
One of my assignments as Director of Discipleship is to help everyone be and feel connected to Jesus and His body the church. That’s a BIG assignment!​

Paul is right, of course. We believe his words were inspired by God. But practically speaking, how do we live that out? If we’re really honest, we have to admit that often we like to keep to ourselves. It’s very easy to attend church on the weekend and never really connect with another person. No one really knows us. We don’t really know anyone else. It’s comfortable to fly under the radar and stay on our little island.​

But maybe, just maybe, you realize you’re missing something. If so, I’d like to invite you to the Power & Love Experience starting Thursday, March 5, from 6:30-8:00 pm. You’ll sit at a table with others who want to be connected with Jesus’ body, the church. We’ll enjoy a light meal, inspirational stories, fun conversation and the chance to connect with others. The Experience will run each Thursday for six weeks. You’ll sit at the same table each night and get to build some new friendships.​

Want to get off your island? Do you want to experience more of God’s power and love in your life? If so, please contact Duane at the church office or at

Caregivers Support Group

First Monday of the month, 2pm - 3:30pm

Caregivers Support Group

Leader: Ann Copeland |

Are you a caregiver? If you help care for another adult, whether or not that person lives in your home, in a nursing home, or in their own home, you are a caregiver. You are a caregiver whether you devote as much as 24 hours per day or as little as 5 minutes a week to someone you care for.

Caregiving is stressful. Caregivers are more likely than their non-caregiving peers to be a risk for depression, heart disease, high blood pressure and other chronic illnesses. You are particularly at risk for caregiver burnout -- a state of mental and physical exhaustion brought on by the physical, emotional and financial stresses of providing ongoing care, usually over a long period of time. Caregiver burnout is the most cited reason for caregivers placing a loved one in a nursing home.

Caregiving for a loved one can leave you frustrated and angry at times. That’s normal -- but you don’t have to go through it alone. Research shows that having support is one of the best, most effective ways of reducing caregiver stress and frustration. A caregiver support group can be a lifeline, providing a place to share feelings, make new friends, get help navigating the health care system, and learn from and lean on others who are walking a similar path.

Please join us for our monthly Caregivers Support Group that meets on the 1st Monday of every month, from 2-3:30 pm in the Parlor.

Leader: Ann Copeland |

Time: 7pm – 8:30pm

Uncontrolled bleeding is a threat that can end lives quickly, sometimes in less than 10 minutes. In the event of an emergency such as an active shooter, vehicle crash, animal attack or explosion, a quick response by trained members of the public can mean the difference between life and death. "Stop the Bleed" is a national public awareness campaign launched by the White House/Homeland Security to help bystanders become trained, equipped and empowered to help in a bleeding emergency before professional help arrives. More than one million people have been trained. If you love someone, then come to the free seminar, April 27 at 7-8:30 pm in the CLC.  Sign-up sheets coming soon.

Caregivers Support Group

First Monday of the month, 2pm - 3:30pm

Caregivers Support Group

Leader: Ann Copeland |

Are you a caregiver? If you help care for another adult, whether or not that person lives in your home, in a nursing home, or in their own home, you are a caregiver. You are a caregiver whether you devote as much as 24 hours per day or as little as 5 minutes a week to someone you care for.

Caregiving is stressful. Caregivers are more likely than their non-caregiving peers to be a risk for depression, heart disease, high blood pressure and other chronic illnesses. You are particularly at risk for caregiver burnout -- a state of mental and physical exhaustion brought on by the physical, emotional and financial stresses of providing ongoing care, usually over a long period of time. Caregiver burnout is the most cited reason for caregivers placing a loved one in a nursing home.

Caregiving for a loved one can leave you frustrated and angry at times. That’s normal -- but you don’t have to go through it alone. Research shows that having support is one of the best, most effective ways of reducing caregiver stress and frustration. A caregiver support group can be a lifeline, providing a place to share feelings, make new friends, get help navigating the health care system, and learn from and lean on others who are walking a similar path.

Please join us for our monthly Caregivers Support Group that meets on the 1st Monday of every month, from 2-3:30 pm in the Parlor.

Caregivers Support Group

First Monday of the month, 2pm - 3:30pm

Caregivers Support Group

Leader: Ann Copeland |

Are you a caregiver? If you help care for another adult, whether or not that person lives in your home, in a nursing home, or in their own home, you are a caregiver. You are a caregiver whether you devote as much as 24 hours per day or as little as 5 minutes a week to someone you care for.

Caregiving is stressful. Caregivers are more likely than their non-caregiving peers to be a risk for depression, heart disease, high blood pressure and other chronic illnesses. You are particularly at risk for caregiver burnout -- a state of mental and physical exhaustion brought on by the physical, emotional and financial stresses of providing ongoing care, usually over a long period of time. Caregiver burnout is the most cited reason for caregivers placing a loved one in a nursing home.

Caregiving for a loved one can leave you frustrated and angry at times. That’s normal -- but you don’t have to go through it alone. Research shows that having support is one of the best, most effective ways of reducing caregiver stress and frustration. A caregiver support group can be a lifeline, providing a place to share feelings, make new friends, get help navigating the health care system, and learn from and lean on others who are walking a similar path.

Please join us for our monthly Caregivers Support Group that meets on the 1st Monday of every month, from 2-3:30 pm in the Parlor. 

For questions, please contact Ann Copeland at 513-275-1725, or

Caregivers Support Group

First Monday of the month, 2pm - 3:30pm

Caregivers Support Group

Leader: Ann Copeland |

Are you a caregiver? If you help care for another adult, whether or not that person lives in your home, in a nursing home, or in their own home, you are a caregiver. You are a caregiver whether you devote as much as 24 hours per day or as little as 5 minutes a week to someone you care for.

Caregiving is stressful. Caregivers are more likely than their non-caregiving peers to be a risk for depression, heart disease, high blood pressure and other chronic illnesses. You are particularly at risk for caregiver burnout -- a state of mental and physical exhaustion brought on by the physical, emotional and financial stresses of providing ongoing care, usually over a long period of time. Caregiver burnout is the most cited reason for caregivers placing a loved one in a nursing home.

Caregiving for a loved one can leave you frustrated and angry at times. That’s normal -- but you don’t have to go through it alone. Research shows that having support is one of the best, most effective ways of reducing caregiver stress and frustration. A caregiver support group can be a lifeline, providing a place to share feelings, make new friends, get help navigating the health care system, and learn from and lean on others who are walking a similar path.

Please join us for our monthly Caregivers Support Group that meets on the 1st Monday of every month, from 2-3:30 pm in the Parlor.

Caregivers Support Group

First Monday of the month, 2pm - 3:30pm

Caregivers Support Group

Leader: Ann Copeland |

Are you a caregiver? If you help care for another adult, whether or not that person lives in your home, in a nursing home, or in their own home, you are a caregiver. You are a caregiver whether you devote as much as 24 hours per day or as little as 5 minutes a week to someone you care for.

Caregiving is stressful. Caregivers are more likely than their non-caregiving peers to be a risk for depression, heart disease, high blood pressure and other chronic illnesses. You are particularly at risk for caregiver burnout -- a state of mental and physical exhaustion brought on by the physical, emotional and financial stresses of providing ongoing care, usually over a long period of time. Caregiver burnout is the most cited reason for caregivers placing a loved one in a nursing home.

Caregiving for a loved one can leave you frustrated and angry at times. That’s normal -- but you don’t have to go through it alone. Research shows that having support is one of the best, most effective ways of reducing caregiver stress and frustration. A caregiver support group can be a lifeline, providing a place to share feelings, make new friends, get help navigating the health care system, and learn from and lean on others who are walking a similar path.

Please join us for our monthly Caregivers Support Group that meets on the 1st Monday of every month, from 2-3:30 pm in the Parlor.

Caregivers Support Group

First Monday of the month, 2pm - 3:30pm

Caregivers Support Group

Leader: Ann Copeland |

Are you a caregiver? If you help care for another adult, whether or not that person lives in your home, in a nursing home, or in their own home, you are a caregiver. You are a caregiver whether you devote as much as 24 hours per day or as little as 5 minutes a week to someone you care for.

Caregiving is stressful. Caregivers are more likely than their non-caregiving peers to be a risk for depression, heart disease, high blood pressure and other chronic illnesses. You are particularly at risk for caregiver burnout -- a state of mental and physical exhaustion brought on by the physical, emotional and financial stresses of providing ongoing care, usually over a long period of time. Caregiver burnout is the most cited reason for caregivers placing a loved one in a nursing home.

Caregiving for a loved one can leave you frustrated and angry at times. That’s normal -- but you don’t have to go through it alone. Research shows that having support is one of the best, most effective ways of reducing caregiver stress and frustration. A caregiver support group can be a lifeline, providing a place to share feelings, make new friends, get help navigating the health care system, and learn from and lean on others who are walking a similar path.

Please join us for our monthly Caregivers Support Group that meets on the 1st Monday of every month, from 2-3:30 pm in the Parlor.

Caregivers Support Group

First Monday of the month, 2pm - 3:30pm

Caregivers Support Group

Leader: Ann Copeland |

Are you a caregiver? If you help care for another adult, whether or not that person lives in your home, in a nursing home, or in their own home, you are a caregiver. You are a caregiver whether you devote as much as 24 hours per day or as little as 5 minutes a week to someone you care for.

Caregiving is stressful. Caregivers are more likely than their non-caregiving peers to be a risk for depression, heart disease, high blood pressure and other chronic illnesses. You are particularly at risk for caregiver burnout -- a state of mental and physical exhaustion brought on by the physical, emotional and financial stresses of providing ongoing care, usually over a long period of time. Caregiver burnout is the most cited reason for caregivers placing a loved one in a nursing home.

Caregiving for a loved one can leave you frustrated and angry at times. That’s normal -- but you don’t have to go through it alone. Research shows that having support is one of the best, most effective ways of reducing caregiver stress and frustration. A caregiver support group can be a lifeline, providing a place to share feelings, make new friends, get help navigating the health care system, and learn from and lean on others who are walking a similar path.

Please join us for our monthly Caregivers Support Group that meets on the 1st Monday of every month, from 2-3:30 pm in the Parlor.

Caregivers Support Group

First Monday of the month, 2pm - 3:30pm

Caregivers Support Group

Leader: Ann Copeland |

Are you a caregiver? If you help care for another adult, whether or not that person lives in your home, in a nursing home, or in their own home, you are a caregiver. You are a caregiver whether you devote as much as 24 hours per day or as little as 5 minutes a week to someone you care for.

Caregiving is stressful. Caregivers are more likely than their non-caregiving peers to be a risk for depression, heart disease, high blood pressure and other chronic illnesses. You are particularly at risk for caregiver burnout -- a state of mental and physical exhaustion brought on by the physical, emotional and financial stresses of providing ongoing care, usually over a long period of time. Caregiver burnout is the most cited reason for caregivers placing a loved one in a nursing home.

Caregiving for a loved one can leave you frustrated and angry at times. That’s normal -- but you don’t have to go through it alone. Research shows that having support is one of the best, most effective ways of reducing caregiver stress and frustration. A caregiver support group can be a lifeline, providing a place to share feelings, make new friends, get help navigating the health care system, and learn from and lean on others who are walking a similar path.

Please join us for our monthly Caregivers Support Group that meets on the 1st Monday of every month, from 2-3:30 pm in the Parlor.

Tai Chi was developed over 3000 years ago as a comprehensive system for well-being on all levels: physical, mental and spiritual. It uses breathing, exercise and meditation to improve health and balance. Tai Chi exercises combine balance, coordination and breathing with harmonious soft, slow flowing movements that renew and invigorate the body, mind and spirit.  Tai Chi has been shown to: 

• Increase flexibility, muscle strength, tone and balance
• Increase energy
• Improve cardio/respiratory health
• Reduce back/neck pain
• Improve sleep
• Decrease anxiety
• Reduce stress.

Every Wednesday, beginning October 16, at 2:00 pm we will have a Tai Chi class in the CLC. Cost is $5. This class is for those who are beginners as well as those who have practiced Tai Chi for many years. Tai Chi can also be done sitting in a chair.  Please dress comfortably. The class will be led by Dr. Larry Bobbert, who has 50 years' experience in helping people improve their health by performing Tai Chi.

Caregivers Support Group

First Monday of the month, 2pm - 3:30pm

Caregivers Support Group

Leader: Ann Copeland |

Are you a caregiver? If you help care for another adult, whether or not that person lives in your home, in a nursing home, or in their own home, you are a caregiver. You are a caregiver whether you devote as much as 24 hours per day or as little as 5 minutes a week to someone you care for.

Caregiving is stressful. Caregivers are more likely than their non-caregiving peers to be a risk for depression, heart disease, high blood pressure and other chronic illnesses. You are particularly at risk for caregiver burnout -- a state of mental and physical exhaustion brought on by the physical, emotional and financial stresses of providing ongoing care, usually over a long period of time. Caregiver burnout is the most cited reason for caregivers placing a loved one in a nursing home.

Caregiving for a loved one can leave you frustrated and angry at times. That’s normal -- but you don’t have to go through it alone. Research shows that having support is one of the best, most effective ways of reducing caregiver stress and frustration. A caregiver support group can be a lifeline, providing a place to share feelings, make new friends, get help navigating the health care system, and learn from and lean on others who are walking a similar path.

Please join us for our monthly Caregivers Support Group that meets on the 1st Monday of every month, from 2-3:30 pm in the Parlor.

Tai Chi Class

Every Wednesday, 2pm - 3pm

Tai Chi Class

Leader: Ann Copeland |

Cost: $5.00

Tai Chi was developed over 3000 years ago as a comprehensive system for well-being on all levels: physical, mental and spiritual. It uses breathing, exercise and meditation to improve health and balance. Tai Chi exercises combine balance, coordination and breathing with harmonious soft, slow flowing movements that renew and invigorate the body, mind and spirit.  Tai Chi has been shown to: 

• Increase flexibility, muscle strength, tone and balance
• Increase energy
• Improve cardio/respiratory health
• Reduce back/neck pain
• Improve sleep
• Decrease anxiety
• Reduce stress.

Every Wednesday, beginning October 16, at 2:00 pm we will have a Tai Chi class in the CLC. Cost is $5. This class is for those who are beginners as well as those who have practiced Tai Chi for many years. Tai Chi can also be done sitting in a chair.  Please dress comfortably. The class will be led by Dr. Larry Bobbert, who has 50 years' experience in helping people improve their health by performing Tai Chi.

Any questions please contact Ann at (513)257-1725 or
