Thanks to everyone who participates in Caring Ministries’ health and wellness opportunities. Here (above) are a few folks who took advantage of the June Sanford footcare clinic.

Wellness Wednesdays in the Park
Continuing through July 25 (except July 4), Wellness Wednesdays in the Park will meet at 9:00 a.m. at Lower Tuthill Park shelter and playground.

These informal discussions are for all ages and stages—come as your summer schedule allows—and will begin with a short scripture reflection followed by conversation.
