Parish Health Ministries
Members of this team provide visits to members of FLC who are no longer able to be active in worship and church activities. Due to the coronavirus the team members are calling a group of congregation members occasionally to visit by phone. This has been rewarding for both the team member and the person receiving the call!
If you are interested in joining this team or know of someone who wants a phone visit, please contact Denise at the church office.
Tai Ji Quan
Tai Ji Quan (pronounced tye gee chuwan) transforms the traditional martial arts movements into a therapeutic regimen aimed at improving strength, flexibility, and balance. It has been proven that this class helps those who suffer from diseases such as arthritis, Parkinson’s disease, vertigo, balance issues and other chronic illnesses. This class is designed to help people at all stages of mobility. The movements can be done standing with stepping, standing behind a chair, or seated in a chair. You will notice the benefits of Tai Ji Quan with any position of doing the movements. Members of previous sessions stated that they really noticed how the class helped not only their balance but their strength and flexibility also. It is a class that you can do at your own pace.
Tia Ji Quan class meets twice a week for 12 weeks.
Unfortunately this class is on hold at this time. We may do a virtual class starting in the fall of 2020! Stay tuned for more information.
Health Care Directives/Advance Care Planning
Advance care planning is the process of making decisions about the care you would want to receive if you are unable to speak for yourself. It guides family and healthcare providers to follow your documented preferences for care. If you have questions regarding your health care directive, call Denise at 847-5656. Your decisions matter! Write your health care directive today.
