3 B - Brain, Body, Belief
Join us at Northminster each week on Mondays and Thursdays at 1:30 pm in the Board Room.  The Focus of the 3B program is to build flexibility, strength and balance.  3B provides riddle challenges to increase memory and problem solving skills as new brain cells grow. It’s a time to recall beloved scriptures with devotionals and “scripture in motion” done with laughter.  This program is free to everyone!  For more information contact Denise Harrington at 317-509-7085. 

Alzheimer's Support Group
Alzheimer’s disease is the sixth-leading cause of death in the United States.  People facing Alzheimer’s and other dementias often turn to their faith-based communities for emotional and spiritual support. The Alzheimer’s Association recognizes the importance of spirituality and offers programs to provide education and support to your faith community.  Denise Harrington is leading an Alzheimer’s Support Group at Irvington Presbyterian Church for family caregivers and friends. Join us on the 3rd Tuesday of every month at 2:00 pm.  Email Denise Harrington or call 317-509-7085 for more information.
