Join us at the YWCA Hanover every Monday and Wednesday at 9:00 am for Faith & Fitness Ministry with Ched Lawrence
Faith & Fitness Ministry is a non-profit program that promotes Faith, Fitness, and Fellowship throughout the community. The program is an exercise workout designed to strengthen and tone muscles and joints. The program begins in a prayer circle, participants bringing prayer concerns to the circle. The instructor reads a short devo and a 45 minute workout follows with Christian music. A free-will offering is suggested, ($1.00), but not mandatory which is given back to the community to meet the needs of God’s people. The instructor and participants discuss where the money is donated as needs are brought to the program.
This is a free program but space is limited Sign up here: https://tinyurl.com/y3srkuwd

Love to learn and grow: taking risks, facing challenges, and being a lifelong learner
Love life: celebrating and enjoying each day

Vera Cornish is a renowned speaker, publisher, and empowerment strategist! She is the first in her family to graduate high school, college and work in higher education.

“When I was a little girl, I dreamed that life could be one grand adventure! Today as a woman I am living the dream!” Vera Cornish
Vera is very clear; everyone has a story. She invites you to ask the hard questions: Are you sitting in the back row of life knowing there are seats in front and center? Are you ready to let go of worry, doubt, and fear? Are you ready to be honest with yourself? Are you ready to live and work with an expectation of success? Vera Cornish Dares You To Dream! One question remains, ‘Are you ready to take the dare?’
