Worship Brings peace of mind

Worship Brings peace of mind

As many ages, the fact that they’re approaching the final states of their lives becomes more real every day. With eternity on the horizon, being an active participant in a Christian congregation provides an inward peace that, for many, nothing else can provide.

Church provides an outlet for people missing their grandkids or stressing about a spouse’s deteriorating health. They can vent to a pastor when the service ends, let hymns and scriptures distract them from concerns, or figure out new ways to cope.

Join Christ community church here in our community every 2nd and 4th Tuesday at 10:30am for worship service.

Arches

National Park

Arches National Park comprises 76,519 acres, more than 1.46 million people visited the park in 2022

National state park- Arches

Arches National Park is home to some of the most striking red rock formations in the world. Established as Arches National Monument in 1929 and later as a national park in 1971, Arches spans 119 square miles of southeastern Utah just outside of Moab. Over 1.5 million visitors on average come through the gates to see the 65-million-year-old sandstone arches, hoodoos, and canyons formed by the forces of water, wind, and temperature change.
What was once the home of numerous indigenous tribes, the land now known as Arches National Park offers numerous hiking trails, panoramic views, and archaeological sites to visit and explore. But be careful where you walk in this delicate landscape. The high desert environment features plants and animals adapted to living in extreme conditions, as well as some organisms like biological crusts that are not only alive but are an essential part of the ecosystem of Arches.

Arches

Double O Arch

The second largest arch within the Devils Garden area. As the name implies, there are two arches here, one large, with a
span of 71 feet, stacked atop a much smaller arch with a 21-foot span. It was formed by downward water erosion from atop the sandstone, rather than from side-to-side water erosion.

The Importance of Activity Engagement

Activity Engagement
Activity Engagement

Our Executive Director, Langston, has been playing LCR (Left center right) and Rummikub with the residents lately. It’s been so much fun watching how competitive they all get! The residents enjoy having him join in on the games.

Reduced Risk of Certain Diseases: Participating in hobbies, social activities, and other meaningful pursuits may lower the risk of developing health problems such as dementia, heart disease, stroke, and certain types of cancer.

Longer Lifespan: Studies show that happiness, life satisfaction, and a sense of purpose are linked to living longer. By doing things you enjoy, you cultivate positive feelings that contribute to overall well-being and longevity.

Improved Emotional Well-Being: Older adults who engage in activities find meaningful report feeling happier and less depressed. Meaningful activities, such as volunteering or being physically active, contribute to emotional resilience.

Remember, it’s essential to find activities that resonate with you personally and create a sense of purpose in your daily life. Whether it’s volunteering, taking an art class, or joining a hiking club, meaningful engagement contributes to overall well-being and independence as you age.
