RHO READERS ARE TAKING OVER 

From August 21 into early September, RHO Readers will be hosting their annual book sale and everyone is invited! Come on down to Fellowship Hall where there will be an amazing supply of books. This is a great opportunity to stock up on reading material for the fall, supply local free libraries, and get new stories for the kids in your life. All proceeds from the book sale go to end-of-the-year gifts to The Global Village Project, an organization who’s mission involves developing a strong educational foundation for refugee students.

TAI CHI IS ON ITS WAY

With much anticipation, Tai Chi is returning back to Morningside Presbyterian Church this fall. Although it was originally developed for self-defense, Tai Chi has evolved into a graceful form of exercise which has been used as a good method of stress reduction and relaxation. Be on the lookout for upcoming dates and times.
