Times they are a changin’ in Redstone

The world is changing and so is our community.

As many of you know, I have been teaching my free total body fitness class for 22 years, since 1995 in the second floor of the church at Redstone on Tuesdays and Thursdays. On a yearly basis, my class has given donations to the church for the use of this space.

I have worked with Pastors Jim Jarmon and Bruce Gledhill throughout the years.

The second floor of the Church is a large open space with beautiful stain glass windows, a piano and moveable chairs. This space is used for Sunday church services and has consistently been used for various other activities such as public meetings for the county and community, my class and the list goes on. This space works well for these meetings, and my students and I have loved being in this unique and beautiful space.

The church is heading in a new direction. The church is working to create a new policy for the usage of the church premises. Recently, I was asked by the Elders and Leadership Group of the church to move my class downstairs. In respect of the Church’s request, I have been teaching my class downstairs.

Unfortunately, the space downstairs does not work for me. With regret, I have made a decision to end my decades of offering free classes Tuesday.

I want to thank all women and men who have attended my class over the years. What a great journey of hard workouts, sore muscle, joy of being fit and able to move and many stories and sharing life together.

My thought for you:

We need to give of ourselves in love and service to others, in a spirit of generosity and good-fellowship.

I joyously give, in greater gratitude, for the abundance that I have already received.

Sincere Friendship,

Lisa Wagner
