First Place 4 Health is a program whose members encourage and challenge one another to meet their fitness goals. Each weekly group meeting includes a weigh-in, nutritional information, class discussion, Bible study discussion and prayer.

Maybe you are struggling with losing 5 to 10 pounds or are battling obesity. Perhaps you want to increase your knowledge about nutrition, to get help with implementing a consistent exercise plan or want to learn how to develop a healthy lifestyle for your family. Whatever your reasons, you’ll soon discover that First Place 4 Health is a biblically based, medically trustworthy wellness program that addresses the whole person—physical, mental, emotional and spiritual.

Day of Serenity

All women are invited to join us for a Day of Serenity on Saturday, March 25, 2017, featuring Kathy Blossom, owner of Blossom-of-Clay Studio. Kathy will share lessons from Isaiah 64:8 and Jeremiah 18:1-6 while demonstrating the process of creating works of art from clay. The idea for Kathy’s program that she brings to us began while in college, and it has become a dream-come-true as her ministry of bringing God’s message from the “potter’s house” continues to grow and be blessed.

The Women’s Ministry Team has planned a day for you to set aside the busyness of your everyday life and enjoy activities designed to bring rest and peace.
