Wonderful Wednesdays Fall Classes Beginning September 11th
ALPHA: If you ever wanted to ask some of the big questions of life in an open, small group space without judgement, then try Apha! The Alpha Course offers a variety of talks on big issues around faith designed to engage guests and inspire conversation. Who is Jesus? How can I have faith? How do I make the most of the rest of my life? These are some of the topics we explore. Curious? Try Alpha. Note: This is an off- site class. It will be held at Casa D’Amici Restaurant, 1100 Celebration Ave, Downtown Moneta following the WW fellowship dinner.
Facilitator: David Lord
A LIFE WORTH LIVING: A Bible study based on Paul’s letters to the Philippians, it examines the changed life of a Chrisitian. Each session explains how it is possible to live the Christian life positively, practically, and joyfully. Presented in DVD format by Nicky Gumbel. The Alpha class is not a prerequisite.
Facilitator: Sally Heffernon
PARENTING: HAVING DIFFICULT CONVERSATIONS WITH CHILDREN: This class is for parents, grandparents, and anyone interested in having conversations about difficult subjects with children. Some of the topics covered include death, divorce, family schedules, moving, and more!
Facilitator: Billie Jean Elmer & Maegan Mitchell
TAI CHI: This ancient Chinese practice that combines movement and meditation, is designed to help achieve balance, both physically and emotionally, and uses a series of positions and motions to accomplish that. The end result improves joint flexibility, muscles, and heart health to strengthen cognition and sleep quality. Whether you are trying to improve flexibility and mental agility as you age, restore health after diagnosis with a disease, or improve function post surgery, tai chi may be for you! This is considered a mild to moderate low impact form of exercise and is fun. Note: Class is now full!
Led by Katrina (Kat) Dinzillo
GRIEF JOURNEY: How does our heart understand when it is broken by the loss of a loved one? We who grieve, search for answers.

There will be a combination of readings, informational handouts, DVDs, personal sharing, and guest speakers.
Facilitator: Lynda Imirie, Randy Camden
