Caregiver Support Group — First and Third Thursdays of the Month on Zoom, 1:00-2:30 p.m.

CaregiverIf you are, have been, or anticipate being a caregiver for a loved one, you might know what a hard job it can be. Maybe you don’t know what to expect. Maybe you think you finally have a handle on something and everything changes. It’s an ever- present learning curve and a host of different emotions. From whom and what do you draw support? What resources are available to you? How do you take care of yourself?

The group will be facilitated by the Rev Dr. Linda Anderson. If you are interested in being part of such a group, please contact Rev Linda at This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.. This month, we are meeting on Thursday, Nov. 5 and Nov. 19.

Indoor Labyrinth Walks - Thursdays at 1:30 p.m.

labyrinth 75x75In the early fall months we held labyrinth walks on our outdoor labyrinth each Thursday afternoon at 1:30 p.m. Walks were limited to 10 people, pre-registration required. Everyone wore masks and social distancing was observed. We were so lucky to have Charles Holdener play the drum and American Indian Flute for us.

Now, wiith November here and colder weather soon to set in, we have moved our walks indoors, observing the same Covid protocols: masks, distancing, temperature scanning upon entering. We are limiting these walks to 10 people, pre-registered. If you are interested in reserving a spot in any or all of the November walks, please email Linda Mikell: This email address is being protected from spambots.
