Support the Berkey Family

Until new Ms. Michaela Elaine is ready to come home from CHOP, her family (Daniel, Sherlin, and brother David) are making their temporary home at the Ronald McDonald house in Philadelphia. If you would like to financially support them, click here.  Be sure to label your gift "Berkey Family"

There are two ways to support the Berkeys financially:

Tai Chi

Simple exercise to take the stiffness away.
Facilitated by Ed Owens

Upcoming Schedule: Feb 21  6:30pm

Tai Chi is a slow moving exercise that has incredible benefits. You can do it standing up, sitting down or laying down! Scripture says that we are to meditate on Him and his word day and night. Tai Chi puts your meditation to movement.  It is called the movement of silent meditation.
Tai Chi is slow and each move flows effortlessly into the next, much like the River of Life does. As we navigate the river, let us learn how to  become like water and flow into each adventure that comes our way.
