To start we will finish studying the book of Revelation. Don’t worry if you did not attend the spring class as our first few sessions this fall will include a catch up on the previous material.

Start your New Year’s Resolution early. Give yourself the gift of a better life!

Fit and Feast will meet once a month from 6:15 to 7:00 p.m. during the Family Fellowship dinner, childcare provided upon request. During that time you will meet with a group leader to choose a goal to commit to for a month in each of four areas; physical, mental, emotional and spiritual.

For example, you may choose from a list to commit to - exercise 15 minutes a day, look for a silver lining in stressful events, have a weekly chat with a friend, apologize when you wrong someone - simple things that can make a difference over time.

Each month we will discuss how your commitments went and you can choose to renew or change your goals for the next month. Sign-up in the church office and/or look for more information in the parlor and in the bulletin soon.
