PrimeTime Adventurers and the Retired Men's Luncheon will resume in September. Get a sneak peak of who our guest speakers will be on September 16 and 17.
The next session of MLUC Donation Yoga is set to begin: Saturdays, September 19 to December 19 (no class on 11/28 or 12/12). Classes will be held in the Children's Rec Room on the lower level of the church, from 10:30 to 11:45 a.m. Please mark your calendars! This session, we are trying something a little different by offering two types of classes - beginner and intermediate.
This class is geared toward individuals who do not have any experience with yoga and/or who have experience but would prefer a more slow-paced, gentle practice.
This class is geared toward yogis who have experience and prefer more movement and some challenge in their practice.
The first class of this upcoming session (September 19) will be Beginner Yoga, and the second will be Intermediate Yoga (September 26). We will alternate in the weeks moving forward. Of course, keep in mind that you are welcome to attend all of the classes no matter your level of practice! E-mail Noelle Hammerbacher () to receive weekly reminders and class details for the upcoming Saturday.
We hope to see you there!
Are you a fan of Harry Potter?
How about engaging our children in social justice? I have found an amazing, brand new curriculum for 4th and 5th graders that uses the wizarding world of Harry Potter as a vehicle to engage children in social justice work. I am looking for people who are interested in helping me bring this program to our kids at both the 9 and 11 time slots on Sunday. If you might be interested, please let me know! Contact Rev. Julie-Ann ()
Spirit Play Trainings
As of now, all spots are taken for our August 8 training at MLUC. However, another training has been scheduled for the preceding Saturday, August 1, in Cherry Hill.
If you were interested in our training but had a schedule conflict, please let Este (), our Religious Education Assistant, know ASAP so she can register you for the August 1 training. Register before it fills up!
We are thrilled to see how much interest there is in Spirit Play!

It is estimated that 50,000 women and children are brought to the United States for trafficking every single year. Despite these numbers, human trafficking is an issue plagued by avoidance, minimization, and victim blaming. But since its inception, The Salvation Army's New Day Drop-in Center has never turned a blind eye to women in need.
