Education

Every day we turn faith into action, walking with people on their journey.  Salt & Light does not provide financial assistance. We do, however, desire to help our participants make achievable goals and find long-term solutions.  God has made individuals uniquely qualified to accomplish His purposes for their lives.  Our ministry is geared towards awakening those abilities so our participants can recognize their significance to their families, in their community and for the Kingdom of God.  So, where do we begin?

SIMPLY FIT  SIMPLY FIT

It’s no secret that senior adults tend to get overlooked times, particularly those who live in retirement communities. While there are many ways we’d like to serve the older residents here in SE Urbana, one practical way is through physical wellness.

Many seniors believe they’re “too old” or “too worn down” to exercise. Research shows a high percentage of physical ailments (even the Big 4: diabetes, Alzheimer’s, strokes, and heart disease) can be improved through regular physical activity.

Trained instructors will cover low-impact aerobics, strength and balance training, and flexibility whether participants are seated or standing. It’s a safe, friendly environment where it doesn’t take long to become family.
