  • Drivers Wanted
    Kathy Smith is trying to put together a list of anyone who is willing to help those who don’t have transportation. There are several ways you can help.
    Bring someone to church on Sunday.
    Bring someone to church for other events.
    Drive for medical appointments, errands, etc.
    When we know who is willing to drive we can match up people by location. Please call or email the church office if you are interested and let us know your preferences. It is also helpful to know if you can help someone who may need a wheelchair to get into a building. We can only serve those who can get in and out of a car on their own but they may have assis- tive devices that need to go in the car. Thank you for your help.
    Nurses Needed
    Kathy Smith is looking for licensed and retired nurses to help with wellness clinics. This is for the church Blood Pressure clinic but she is looking to work outside the church as well. So please contact her to let her know if you are interested.
    Any RN with a current license who would like to know more about Faith Community Nursing and what is involved Kathy would love to talk to you about it as well. Contact her at or call her at 524-1330. Thank you.
    The Coming Season
    Fall is coming fast. The leaves are starting to turn and the air is getting a little crisper. Fall clean up will be upon us soon as well. The leaves need raking, gardens need to be cleaned up and put to bed before the cold temperatures of winter. Remember to stretch before you start raking the leaves or digging up the garden. Yes you’ve been active and working in your yard all summer but raking can be a very difficult task and if you do to it much during the sum- mer you may find that you are using muscles you forgot about. It can also be a great cardio exercise so again be careful and pace yourself.
    Don’t forget that the ticks are still active even as the temperature drops. Continue to protect yourself. Hiking through the woods this time of year is wonderful and beautiful with the color of the leaves. Just remember to drink enough water, wear layers of clothing, watch the weather and be prepared for sudden changes and drop in temperatures. Enjoy the great outdoors and get your Vitamin N (for nature).
