It’s Time for Healthy Eating!

At 12:30 on Sunday, September 16th, Brian Paradise will present a very interesting overview of the book Prevent and Reverse Heart Disease by Caldwell Esselstyn. Don’t wait until you have to reverse it, but do the prevention now!

We have a town hall meeting right after the service, so grab some coffee and treats and come on up to the Fletcher room.
