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:
In case you missed it, the Christian Wellness Ministry (CWM) page is now "live". It mirrors the CWM brochure, and outlines the services available. The CWM page can be accessed from the websites of the participating churches; while you're here on the Saint Stephen website, there's a link on the Home Page and also an option under "About Us".
A new CWM brochure has been produced, and is available (in .pdf format) for downloading / printing. Click HERE for the file...
The following classes will be offered through Catholic Charities, Council on Aging and the Christian Wellness Ministry (CWM). A small donation would be appreciated but if unable, seniors will not be denied registration or entry into any of these classes.

The "Wellness Walks" program has resumed for the summer. This Fitness & Fellowship activity has walkers meeting at a different local Forest Preserve each Tuesday morning at 8am for a modest walk. Everyone is welcome to participate! Click HERE for the July 2019 schedule.
... and speaking of walking (again!) in faith, Melanie Fuhrmann is seeking help for the "Relay for Life", Cancer Walk which will be held on Saturday Sept 14th. As most know this is a fund raising event for cancer research. We support Melanie in this effort, as she is once again Team Leader of Team Reaching4ACure ! Please contact Melanie if you are able to help, or would like to participate in this year's walk. Here's a link to the Team page: Reaching4ACure
The CWM team is looking for a few talented Crafters to hold occasional classes; also looking for a person who enjoys visiting with seniors to make home visits.
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!
For more information or to find out about volunteer opportunities, please call the CWM Chairperson: Carol Frazier, RN at 630-399-0089.
