LWR QUILTING GROUP   

Join our LWR (Lutheran World Relief) Quilters group and assist us in creating mission quilts!  Whether you prefer to work on a quilt in the comfort of your home or with the community of others gathered here at the church, we'd love to have you as part of this fellowship. 


No experience neccesary, we will provide the supplies needed.  It doesn’t take extraordinary skills to change a life with a LWR Quilt.

GENTLE YOGA

YOGA is a great way to strengthen & relax the body, increase flexibily & balance, and calm your soul.   Through a system of specific physical postures (asanas), breath control and simple meditation we practice a natural road to a healtier mind, body & spirit. 


All levels are welcome to join this class.
