The final program this year, for 55+, is scheduled for May 17, 2015. We will meet in the Assembly Room and be sharing finger foods (bring to share) at 5pm and drinks will be provided. At 6pm we will be serving gourmet popcorn while showing the movie The Trip to Bountiful.

The 2nd Annual AMC camping trip is at Pine Grove Furnace State Park this year.  Two group tent-only sites have been reserved for June 19, 20 and 21.  All of the tents can be set up around a central fire ring area-very beautiful site! These sites are for tents only- no campers, no electric or flush toilets. There is running water available.  The “modern” campground is a short walk away and can accommodate those with campers or who would prefer electric or shower facilities. If you would like to join us in the group tent section, please notify Dawn Nolt by June 1st.  If you would prefer the modern campground, please make your own reservation soon with PA state parks reservations, as space may be limited.  This is a great park with swimming, fishing, hiking, biking, boating or just relaxing opportunities all around.  It is the 1/2 way point for the Appalachian Trail, where there is also a nice museum!

Beginning May 12, Kandace Helmuth, a Certified Kripalu yoga teacher, will be teaching a Gentle Yoga class from 6:15pm to 7:30pm. There is no experience necessary and all are welcome.  Check out the church calendar for more details!

May is Mental Health Month. It’s a time to focus on the symptoms of mental health conditions and to know when and how to get help. Thank you to professionals and volunteers in our congregation who are part of organizations like Community Services Group, No Longer Alone Ministries and Philhaven that support people with mental illness. Thank you also if you are an employer, colleague, landlord or neighbor who supports and brings hope to those among us experiencing mental illness.

New to AMC? An Orientation Seminar is planned for Friday evening May 29 and Saturday morning May 30. Contact Pastor Jim S. Amstutz jamstutz@akronmench.org or Dale Hershey ddhersh5@gmail.com if you have interest.
