CIRCLE OF JOY AND GRACE

The Circle of Joy and Grace meetings are scheduled on the 2nd Monday of each month at St. Andrew UMC and are open to all women who would like to join us!  This month we will meet in Memorial Hall at 7:00 pm on Monday September 11.   We are excited that at this meeting, we will begin a new Bible Study, The Miracle of Mercy, by Pastor Rick Warren.  This is a DVD-driven Bible Study with an accompanying Study Guide which will serve to lead us into discussion following the DVD presentation.  We also ask our Circle members to bring to the September 11 meeting items to be donated for the UMCOR Relief Supply Kits:  Hygiene Kits and Cleaning Kits.  The list of items are included on the insert which is provided in today’s bulletin announcements and at the Missions Bulletin Board area in Fellowship Hall Lobby.  For more information about the Circle of Joy and Grace or about our September 11 meeting, please reach out to Lucy DeBarge through the church office.

MIND, BODY, SPIRIT WORKSHOP NOTES  
 Our St. Andrew UMW General Meeting on Sunday, September 10, 2017 highlighted a Workshop entitled "Mind, Body, Spirit". The Workshop presenter, Heather Kubis, CHC, CHN, began with this thought:  "Optimal health and well-being is not just about what we are eating, the numbers on a scale, or how much we exercise. It's a balance of our physical, emotional, and spiritual selves. When we nourish all of these aspects we live a life in better balance."  
As a service to our UMW members and friends, Heather has graciously made available to us her notes from that Workshop.  To access Heather's full article, click on this link:  Mind, Body, Spirit Workshop Notes
