Recreation & Wellness Ministry

Church of the Holy Communion’s Recreation & Wellness Ministry provides sports, wellness & recreation activities in a Christ-centered environment.  Our program ministry is committed to offering a fun, welcoming environment that encourages a healthy and active lifestyle for all ages through team sports and fitness classes.  We welcome participation from all in the community. 

Our athletic teams participate in church recreation leagues where we honor Christ through prayer, healthy competition and sportsmanship.  Our coaches are committed to helping children and youth improve skills, learn fundamentals, teamwork and sportsmanship. Each team is a small group where players and families develop friendships throughout the season as each enjoy playing or watching games. 

Please contact Julie Fike, Director of Recreation & Wellness, with any questions.

Moving in Faith: Endurance

This is a perfect week for me to write the blog.  The theme is endurance – something I have not been familiar with for over 30 years when it comes to exercising.  When the pandemic hit, I was immediately in isolation.  Except for my blood type, I could check off every box for not surviving if I contracted the virus.  Anxiety, fear, and depression quickly took over my life.  The feelings I had were very unfamiliar.  I spoke to God, and he listened.  Exercise, virtual church service, and bible study all showed up.  Within several days, my life began to change.  My exercise journey started with a call from my sister, Connie Cruthirds.  She knew I was vulnerable, and she knew how scared I was.  She suggested that we dance together every afternoon through FaceTime.  It was a great idea and I was excited because we both love to dance! The first afternoon, I lasted 5 minutes and hated it because my arthritis and bursitis immediately began to hurt.  The pain made me sadder.  My sister did not give up on me.  Through research, we found videos of chair exercises (free through YouTube).  We began exercising daily.  In the beginning, I could exercise no more than 10 minutes.  Within a matter of weeks, I was exercising 30 minutes, 5 days/week and it was giving me so much joy.  Soon after, the challenge of Moving in Faith presented itself.  Yes!  That is exactly what I was doing!  For the first time in my life, I entered a physical health challenge.  By joining the group, I was now part of a team working toward a common goal to get healthy, even during the most challenging of times.  The team is encouraging and to know that I can contribute keeps me “moving in faith”. 

One of my most important reasons for continuing to move in faith – grandson.
