wna Wellness speaker series

Every Wednesday – November 16th  at 6:00 in Room #213 


It can be difficult to find helpful and reliable information about health and wellness issues.  If we don’t have a relationship with the appropriate professional to talk to, we often seek answers on the internet and get confused and overwhelmed.   The Wellness Ministry is excited to bring in trustworthy experts to speak about some of our common concerns.  No pre-registration is required.  Join us for all six weeks or drop in to hear specific speakers.  Contact Janice Stewart for more info at
