Maintain your strength and balance with new exercises

Prime Time is sponsoring a dvd-based series of video exercises to strengthen our entire body and improve balance. We all know that good balance and a strong body are essential for continuing to live an active and independent life. Additionally, good balance is paramount in preventing falls as we age.

Beginning workouts include:

  • Gentle chair strength exercises while seated
  • Stationary balances and seated core work while seated
  • Walking and stepping balances using a chair
  • Leg strength exercises
  • Upper body strength and mobility (seated with hand weights)
  • Lower body stretches

The exercise group meets in the ROC on Monday, Wednesday, and Friday at 10:15. We invite you to join us. Those who have been working with the video to determine its value have very favorable
responses as to its effectiveness.

So, Prime Timers, let’s get movin’!!

Portrait of a Healthy Church

In the fall of 2017, our staff decided to invite Dr. Randy Millwood from our BCMD staff to help us determine how we might help Redland to become a more efficient tool for furthering God’s kingdom.  Randy suggested the Church Health Assessment—a study he and other faculty of New Orleans Seminary had developed a few years back. We liked that idea so we set the dates. We enlisted the respondents (30 Redlanders carefully chosen to reflect the age, gender, marital status, and length of church membership tenure, etc. of our church). The idea was to assemble a “little Redland” to help us get a picture of the “bigger Redland. The surveys were carefully tabulated, and on April 7 about 60 Redlanders gathered to hear the results and to brainstorm some ways we could use the results.

Here are a couple things the survey revealed:

1.) We have a very healthy church.
2.) The results reflected the vision focus for 2018—our need to do a better job of connecting with each other and the lost in our community.

Our staff will with Randy to get suggestions on next steps, and continues to review the results. We want to accomplish those goals with you, not for you.

Copies of the results were sent out attached to an e-mail and are also available on the table in the back of the Sanctuary, or contact the church office for a copy.
