Discover paths to more wellness on December 5

From 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. on Saturday, December 5, a Community Wellness Coalition program will offer insights and ideas for healthier holiday eating, especially in response to some of the major diseases that afflict our community — such as diabetes, prostate cancer, colon cancer, and heart disease.

The primary speaker will be Thomas Roberson, a retired, board-certified nurse practitioner who is now pursing gardening in a big way — an effort that he calls "FARM"acy — and promoting healthier eating as a path toward greater wellness.

The program will be in the multipurpose room at Shiloh Old Site. Lunch will be provided. So that enough food can be prepared, please sign up by Wednesday, November 28, using the sign-up sheet in the downstairs hallway at Shiloh Old Site. Or click here to contact Marva Moore by email.

Children are invited to attend as well. They will have an opportunity to make holiday crafts for nursing home residents.

The Community Wellness Coalition is a joint effort for Shiloh Old Site, Arm of the Lord Ministries, Faith and Power Ministries, Grace Redemption Church, Hazel Hill Apartments, Mayfield Civic Association, and Mt. Zion Cathedral.

Join our working trip to Haiti in spring 2016

Shiloh Old Site is planning another short working trip to Haiti for spring 2016. Our Norma Burruss Foreign Missions Ministry is looking for church members who might be interested in joining this effort.

Those who participate will be volunteering as part of a coed Lott Carey Foreign Missions work team. Assistance will also be needed with fund raising, clothing and food collection, and other tasks.

To ask questions or share your tentative interest in the trip, contact our Norma Burruss Foreign Missions Ministry. The trip will likely be in March or April. Other details are still being worked out.
