Welcome to the United Church of Sun City 

COVID-19: The Myths, The Modes (of transmission) and the Management - We'll host a group discussion at 1 p.m. on Tuesday, March 24th. Our Parish Nurse will have a short presentation on COVID-19 and Influenza A followed by questions and discussion.

On Sundays, our Parish Nurse will be taking blood pressure readings at the front of the sanctuary at 11:30 a.m. after the coffee fellowship. Everyone is welcome.

Greetings from your Parish Nurse. In March, we're focusing on the brain.

The month kicks off with a 5-week class, "Keep Your Smarts!" Keli Price from the Amen Clinic will be here on Wednesdays from March 4 to April 1, 2:00–3:30 p.m. to instruct and assist us in practicing exercises that will help to activate our brain in order to maintain or improve the brain's function. Some of you were here when she spoke and demonstrated in the Speaker Series last fall. We had an awesome time in trying some new ways to stimulate our brains! Come back for this series and bring your friends! Cost is $50 and class size is limited to 20. Sign up at the back of the sanctuary or talk with me.

Our Speaker Series this month will be on Tuesday, March 31, 2:30–4:00 p.m. with the Dementia Care Education Group. They always have a powerful message, and this month their subject is "After the Dementia Diagnosis: Exploring Caregiving Strategies." This will focus on the caregiver and what we can do to support our loved ones and church friends with some level of dementia. It will explore how common symptoms can be managed as well as coping techniques and other caregiver strategies to help us along the way.

Also, watch the back table of the sanctuary for information about Cerebral Vascular Accidents (CVA) more commonly known as strokes. We'll have information about what it is, how the brain is affected, and information about prevention and treatment.

Happy Healthy Brain Month!
