The March meeting of the Disciples Women of Central Christian Church met Tuesday in the church parlor. Guest speakers were Rev. Cara Gilger and Kirsten Burch.
With over 15 years of experience in serving churches and congregations, Cara has cultivated a strong professional reputation with proven skills in networking, church growth, and creative and sustainable visionary planning. She shared some of her ideas about today’s churches—how they have changed and what they need to be welcoming to all.
Kirsten is a master teacher and yoga therapist who holds an impressive list of certifications in the practice of yoga, holistic services and lifestyle. A strong supporter of holistic medicine, Kirsten teaches traditional yoga, Ayurveda, meditation, Yoga Nidra and more. In the wellness center, classes in tai chi, diet, nutrition and counseling will be offered. Kirsten is the project manager for the Wellness Center that is opening upstairs at Central.
Following the meeting, the women enjoyed lunch in fellowship hall. Pastor Ken Crawford was “executive chef” for the luncheon, preparing tasty dishes like pasta salad, soup and toasted crostini. Lavanga Latika served a vegan Shepherd’s Pie for those who do not eat meat and dairy. The star of Pastor Ken’s culinary skills were strawberry crepes. Everyone was impressed and upcoming events will likely include a cooking class on crepe making much like the popular instant pot classes that were held last fall. A hearty thank you is extended to Grady Quick and Chris Kahlmorgan who helped serve the delicious meal, as well as to the visitors who attended the meeting.
