Welcome Back Chesterton Members

We are excited to announce that effective Tuesday, April 6th, masks will no longer be required while being physically active. Masks must be properly worn upon entering the facilities and walking through the facility at all times. This update is possible due to the recently updated Governor's Order.

In addition to the updated mask order, we are pleased to inform members that the dry sauna's will also reopen with a limit of one person at a time. Please limit your use time to 10 minutes. Dry Sauna policy rules will apply, please use a towel as a touch barrier.

IMPORTANT: Please find comfort in knowing we are still operating under strict COVID-19 safety precautions and continue to make decisions based on sound data provided by local and state officials, with added guidance from our expert infectious disease doctors at Franciscan Health.

Prayer for Prosperity of Health

Highly Exalted Lord, I ask for prosperity for my body. Please grant me many years of life, a sound mind, strength to my muscles, bones, heart, and lungs, a powerful immune system, and excellent agility. The healthier I am, the more thoroughly I can do Your work. Lord, I thank You that when I pay attention to Your words and keep them within my heart that they bring health to my whole body. Amen.
