Make one change this year for a healthy body… healthy mind… healthy soul… Walking by Faith, emphasis on walking (or running/jogging if you prefer!) is a new small group forming around those who want to get moving, and work toward a healthier lifestyle. This group is forming with the intention to participate in “The Walk to End Homelessness 2019” on March 23 in Kalamazoo. According to the Social Principles of the United Methodist Church we are called to pursue a healthy life style which includes preventive health care, good nutrition, health education, and secure housing in achieving health. Anyone is welcome to check this group out, no experience is required! In addition, the group will participate in the all church book read during Lent, titled Unafraid by Adam Hamilton. Walking by Faith will meet Saturdays at 10:30am at Bicentennial Park on E. Milham Ave. We will be walking outside; dress accordingly. Please contact Tonya Boot at firstname.lastname@example.org with signup or questions.

What is a Seder Meal? The Seder is a Jewish festival meal marking the beginning of Passover. It retells the story of the Jewish exodus from Egyptian slavery. The word “Seder” means order, and during this meal there is an order to the entire meal, which includes readings, songs, stories, and special foods that carry meaning within themselves and tell the story of the exodus. For our Jewish friends it is a time when the entire family comes together to celebrate the beginning of Passover. This was the meal Jesus was sharing with friends at “The Last Supper”. Chapel Hill will have a symbolic Seder meal on Thursday April 18, at 7:00pm in the Fellowship Hall. Everyone is invited to this special night, kids too! The meal will conclude with Communion. You must register by Monday April 15 at pchum.org/sedermeal2019. Any questions can be directed to Tonya Boot at email@example.com.
