Lunch and Learn

If you knew changing your diet today could make your brain healthier, would you?

June is Alzheimer’s and Brain Health Awareness Month. Alzheimer’s disease is the fifth‑leading cause of death among those aged 65 and older and a leading cause of disability and poor health.

You are invited to a Lunch and Learn hosted by our Parish Health ministry on Wednesday, June 19 at 12 PM in the Fellowship Hall. Join us to learn about the MIND diet (Mediterranean-DASH Intervention for Neurogenerative Delay) and to understand the impact of food specifically on brain health.

Bring along one of the 10 recommended foods to share, including: green leafy vegetables (like kale, spinach, or cooked greens), other vegetables, berries, nuts, whole grains, fish, beans, or poultry. (See more information in the June newsletter.)

Please RSVP by calling the church office at (623) 773-1234.

Sign ups will on the church patio outside the Christian Life Center between worship services starting on Sunday, May 26.

Remember, although an estimated 38% of the U.S. population is eligible to donate, less than 10% actually do each year. Blood also cannot be manufactured – it can only come from generous donors. So do something only you can do, donate your blood. 

Thanks for your support!

After assembling the bags take a few, and keep them in your car so that the next time you meet someone in need, you can hand them one.
