Exercise Class Wednesday’s

Exercise classes are still being offered Wednesday's from 10:30 -11:30 a.m. A variety of exercises are all part of each session and can be done in a seated position with the use of a chair or standing position or a combination of both. A small donation of $3 to $5 is suggested but not expected for each class you attend. Can’t make it to class, but want to join us from home? Join us on ZOOM. You must be able to access the internet by computer, I-pad, or phone with video availability. You do not have to have to show on camera during class, but you will need to be able to see the instructor. You can also find the zoom link below. If you would like to participate or have any questions, contact Parish Nurse Kathy Williams.  Note: NO CLASS NOVEMBER 23RD


CPR/First Aid Being Offered in November

Two CPR/First Aid classes will be offered at St. Paul either the last weekend in November or the first weekend in December. At least four people are needed to conduct the class. Ideally, two people from each church group or committee should take a First aid/CPR class. This will allow for someone to be able to be a capable first responder to an injured person during church activities. Kathy Williams will lead an American Heart, CPR/First aid class which takes about 8-8.5 hours. Classes will include two four-hour sessions or one 8-hour session. The class workbook will be available prior to the sessions and needs to be read prior to the class. If you are willing or interested in becoming certified, please complete a Make a Wish Card or leave a message in the office.

In need of medical equipment? Contact Parish Nurse Kathy Williams or the church office and let them know what you are needing.
