Christmas at the A/U Ranches

Adventure/ Unlimited Camps for Christian Scientists

Escape the holiday hustle and join our family to cherish the Spirit of the Christ at the A/U Ranches December 22-28, 2018. We’ll deck the halls and cook the feast, leaving you time to decorate cookies and gingerbread houses, help select the A/U Ranches’ Christmas tree, share inspiration and read the Bible Lesson with others, go sledding and skiing, ice skate and play broom hockey on the frozen pond, sing Christmas carols and ride horses in the snow. And you can always relax in the lodge, read and savor a warm fire.

Come by yourself or bring friends and family of all faiths. We’ll take care of all the details and make it a Christmas to remember!

You can also attend as a volunteer staff member and bless others with your service.

We look forward to celebrating the Christ
with you at the A/U Ranches!

Tuesday – October 23 – 7 PM

Medicare open enrollment is almost upon us! You might have questions about your choices, such as:

  • As a Christian Scientist, are there any specific issues that I need to be aware of when I am making decisions about Medicare coverage?
  • What decisions about Medicare do I need to make when I first become eligible?
  • What Medicare coverage options are available to me?
  • How does Medicare coverage work with other types of health insurance?
  • When does Medicare cover Christian Science nursing care provided in a Christian Science nursing facility like The Leaves?

Please join us at The Leaves, A Christian Science Nursing Care Facility, for this talk by Leslie Connery, one of two Government Relations Counsel who supports the Christian Science Committee on Publications in their work with lawmakers and government officials.  Leslie has nearly 20 years of experience with health care, administrative law, and government benefit issues.
