Memory Cafe
Memory Cafe begins Monday, April 16, 9:30 am in Rooms 3 and 4. It will meet the second and fourth Mondays of each month. This new program is specifically for individuals with Parkinson’s disease and/or memory issues. It is sponsored by Sun Lakes Creative Engagement Partners, and includes members from Neighbors Who Care, Hospice of the Valley, Visiting Angels, and The Perfect Place. The program is supported by various organizations like Banner Alzheimer’s Institute. 

The Memory Cafe is a place where families can meet to receive education and social support, which are critical to successful care-giving and open avenues of communication for the individuals and their families with a vision to eliminate feelings of isolation and hopelessness. If you would like more information regarding this new program, please contact Wayne Mangold at (480) 580-8317.

Sweet Life Cafe
When you were 17, did you know what adventures were in your future?  Or might you have been like Joseph, stuck and feeling forgotten like you had been left in a ditch? What opportunities came your way? Did they pass you by, or did you reach out for them? What impact did your choices have on your life? On your life story?

Sarah Heath, author of What’s Your Story? Seeing Your Life Through God’s Eyes, invites her readers to consider how Joseph’s story can help them tell their own story. Sweet Life Café is offering this four-week video/book study beginning Thursday, April 19, 12:00 p.m., in Room 1. Bring your lunch, and bring a friend! For more information or to purchase a book ($11.50) stop by the church office or contact Pastor Jean.
