Do you need an incentive to get on your feet and walk? Tuesday mornings at 9:00 meet Rev. Wanda at the church - we will walk around town, physically distanced of course, and according to people’s abilities - the goal is we will increase speed and distance as the weeks pass… but always within the limits of those in attendance. Walking group will go rain, shine or snow, as long as the sidewalks are safe.
With the lockdown descending around us, we are thinking we should put a hold on any church groups for the month of January, or until the lockdown is lifted.
This does NOT mean our walking group gets to sit on the couch eating potato chips!
Oh no… we have a plan.
Rev. Wanda has started an excel file so we can track any walking we do on our own,
and hold each other accountable for reaching our goals.
All you have to do is email or call the church office a) your weekly goal in km or time spent walking, then each time you walk send me your daily stats. We will keep track, and at the end of each week give a shout out to everyone who made their goal, and encouragement to those who might have fallen short.
Join us for Taize, second Tuesday of each month, 7pm by zoom. Contact the church office for the link. email@example.com
Taize is characterized by the repetitive singing of simple harmonized tunes, interspersed with readings, prayers, and periods of silence. Here is a sample of how the service may look.
On-line Yoga, tailored to YOU!
God calls us to take care of our bodies, to be strong in honouring the gift of life we have from our Creator (I Corinthians 6, 9, Proverbs, Isaiah, etc etc)
As we continue and maybe even deepen restrictions in Ontario, TSA is hoping to offer you a chance to move and strengthen your body, in a way that grounds your soul and brings you closer to truth and love. For real!
Our wonderful musician Sandra Candeloro is also a certified yoga instructor, and she is willing to teach yoga classes, once a month for now, on Zoom. Have you been looking for a personal, in home way to engage your body in mindfulness and worship? Please let us know. Classes will be adaptable for all levels of experience, flexibility and strength.
We will hold the classes if there is enough interest. We are suggesting a donation of $10 per class, and a commitment to participate in four sessions (January to April inclusive). Classes will be the fourth Tuesday night at 7:00, eventually moving to live classes in our church hall, when public health regulations allow.
Please let us know if you would like to be part of this new initiative!
Any proceeds above and beyond expenses will be donated to support the migrant worker outreach of our church.
Please contact Pamela in the office to register. firstname.lastname@example.org or 613-475-1311. Once payment has been received, you will be sent the Zoom link for yoga.
