Firm Believers

Firm Believers I is Monday and Thursday nights from 7:00 – 8:15 p.m.
Firm Believers II is Tuesday and Thursday mornings from 8:00 – 9:00 a.m.

I would like to invite anyone who has not tried our exercise class, or who used to attend but stopped, to join us in Fellowship Hall.

So, what is the difference between the classes? The evening class is a little more strenuous, with a longer cardio-vascular workout, and more intense weight workouts. In the morning class we still warm-up, but do a lot of the exercises and stretches while sitting in a chair, but don’t be fooled into thinking you won’t get a workout while sitting.

Both classes begin with a warm-up to get our bodies ready to work and stretch. The evening class then proceeds to a cardio section, then on to large muscle (legs, arms, back, shoulders) usually with the aid of 2-5 pound weights. We then go down onto our mats on the floor to work our core, which are the abdominal and lower back muscles. Ending the program we do stretches and last but definitely not least (in fact many stay throughout the class just to do this part) a guided imagery and meditation. I incorporate some Yoga, Tai Chi, Pilates, and low impact aerobics to make sure we get a good workout.

The morning class begins  with the warm-up, making sure all major joints; necks, shoulders, hips, knees and ankles are moving. We then work on balance by standing on one foot, by walking toe-heel, or just moving from side to side transferring our weight from right to left foot. Next we go to the chairs with our 1-3 pound hand weights and we work the legs, arms, shoulders, and even do some abdominal exercises. We stretch on the chair, and then move down to the floor, on our mats to continue working legs, abdominal, and core muscles. We end in more stretching, then the guided imagery and meditation.

We have a lot of laughs, and that in itself is an exercise in good health. Come join us. Bring your hand weights, exercise mat, towel and water to drink, and be ready to have fun

Presbyterian women

Presbyterian Women have always had an ambitious agenda: prayer and Bible study; the worldwide mission of the church; work for justice and peace; and building an inclusive, caring community. As we look forward this fall to new programs in our church, Presbyterian Women wish to highlight opportunities that are available to all.

A Bible study is held on the second Tuesday of the month in the Southwest Room that is open to all interested persons.

In addition to the monthly Bible Study, we have two events in which we participate.  One is the Angel Interfaith Network Baby Shower, which is held in the Fall.  The other is the Book Review, which we enjoy in February.  It is led by Elaine Walker.

For more information on how to participate, please Contact Us.

Tables for Eight

The mission of the church began around a table as Jesus established a new covenant with his followers and called them to be good news for the world. Our Evangelism and Nurture team is organizing Tables for Eight as way of building community in our congregation.

Who: Groups of 8-10 people who gather for fellowship. Each group sets a time to meet regularly.

Why: Because relationship with God and neighbor are at the heart of our faith – and we need opportunities to grow in the practice of community.

When/How: Call the church office at (909) 624-9693

What: Your Table for Eight can design its own way of pursuing community according to what meets the needs and goals of its members.

Some examples might include:

A Table that meets monthly for a potluck dinner
A Table that gathers weekly at a local restaurant
A Table that serves together at our Community Meal program
A Table that schedules group hikes/picnics
A Table that enjoys attending cultural events together

The possibilities are endless. Come to the Table!!
