An active group of predominately “senior citizens” (all levels) meets two mornings a week to exercise, body and spirit! Monday and Thursday morning classes offer an early exercise session at 9:30a.m. that is repeated at 11:00a.m. In between, we offer “singing” (for our enjoyment only) to exercise our vocal cords and sing music that has special meaning to us – anything from early-mid 20th century to old hymns and Americana. Each segment of activity is 45 minutes in length. Exercise takes place in the “Great Room” on the lower level (enter through the north church parking lot), and the singing happens in the choir room on the main floor of the church. You are invited to participate with any or all morning activities!

The exercise routines require you to wear supportive shoes and loose, comfortable clothing. If you are presently under a doctor’s care, you may want to share what you will be doing with that professional, but for the most part, the exercise can be adjusted to the level of exertion that you feel you need. Exercise begins with stretching out, deep breathing, and general warm up. We use light weights for strength building and resistance bands for toning, all as part of the class. After a cool down, we have accumulated about 2 miles of movement. (We recently marked off a track in the north lot of the church for those who prefer just walking, or for warming up or cooling down before/after class.) The exercise music that we use is varied and much of it is music with which many of us grew up singing and dancing through our younger days. The singing session is a variety of what was mentioned above, depending on the mood of the group! (We take our song books to retirement facilities and sing with those residents regularly, too.) We are a very active, fun-loving group who are determined to maintain our health and enjoy life in the process. There are no pre-requisites to join our fellowship - just a cheerful spirit and an eagerness to be healthy as we share and enjoy the blessings of our lives together. No charge, no “auditions”, no age or gender or church affiliation requirements – ALL are welcome. Call Betty Baddley (402-445-9632) if more information is needed.
