The Oklahoma Healthy Aging Initiative (OHAI) enhances health and quality of life for older Oklahomans. OHAI uses a multifaceted approach that focuses on improving the health and quality of life of older Oklahomans and their caregivers through community-based health education and outreach. OHAI created a statewide senior health network by establishing Centers of Healthy Aging in five regions across the state. Centers provide both clinical care and health education throughout their respective regions.
Centers of Healthy Aging. Located in five regions across the state, the centers work in collaboration with local service clinics, while providing health education throughout their respective regions. Each center offers educational programs geared towards seniors, caregivers and those providing healthcare services to seniors. Programs include topics ranging from healthy aging to assisting individuals living with chronic diseases. In addition to our regular programming, education specialists are available to present on a wide range of topics in your communities. We are advocates and partners for your well-being.

A Brief History
About 110 Years Ago.....
St. Paul's Lutheran Church was organized on August 17, 1909, under the leadership of Pastor Theo. Iben of Glenella, Oklahoma. The young congregation worshiped in various places around Enid including the old feed mill on 2nd Street until their first church was built. During this time they were served by the pastors of the surrounding congregations. Their first church was built during the winter of 1909-1910 at 14th and East Maine, and dedicated on February 13, 1910. In August of 1910, St. Paul’s Lutheran Church called its first resident pastor, Rev. Herm ‘A. Nothnagel. St. Paul’s worshiped there until the new church could be built on the corner of 17"‘ Street and East Broadway.
A New Start.....
Groundbreaking for the new church took place on March 7, 1926. St. Paul's Lutheran School was built behind the church in the pattern of the new church. On May 9, 1926, Mr. Aug. W. Lietz of Alma, Kansas, was called as the first full time teacher of St. Paul’s Lutheran School. The school was dedicated and Mr. Lietz was installed in September of 1926. The new church was completed and dedicated on March 27, 1927.
