Here's the latest update from this joint ministry sponsored by Saint Stephen Lutheran Church, United Methodist Church of Antioch, and St. Ignatius of Antioch Episcopal Church:
Our webmaster is finishing the Christian Wellness Ministry (CWM) web page, to be located on the Saint Stephen Lutheran Church website, and linked-to by the other church sites. The page will outline the services offered by the ministry, as well as provide contact info, and is expected to "go live" on Sunday March 10th.
A few new "Telecare" volunteers are being sought. This ministry outreach makes calls Monday through Friday to isolated seniors who could use a friendly voice to chat for a bit and check up on them, letting them know they are not forgotten. Travel is not required for this ministry service.
Several people have asked if the "Wellness Walks" fellowship-and-fitness ministry will continue for 2019. We're happy to report that we will resume the walks in late May or early June. As before, dates and times TBD based on the participants.
The Knitting & Crocheting Ministry members will meet on Monday Feb 11th at 1pm at United Methodist Church of Antioch (UMCA). New fiber-crafters are always welcome, as work continues on various projects such as Red Hats for Premies, blankets & quilts, etc.
A new CWM brochure has been produced, and is available (in .pdf format) for downloading / printing. Click HERE for the file, which will also have a link on our MEDIA webpage.
Catholic Charities will be offering a "Legal Aspects of Aging" seminar at Saint Stephen Lutheran Church on Tuesday, March 12th at 2pm. A representative from Prairie State Legal Services will cover Power of Attorney, Wills, and Advance Directives. Open to Seniors 60+. RSVP: Kari Pohar at 847-740-6708.
The CWM Leadership Team meets on the 1st Thursday of every month at 10:00 am at one of the sponsoring churches. If you'd like to attend, call our church office to find out which church will be hosting the meeting!
