Health & Fitness Ministry


We desire that each of our church family experiences full-life health in Christ– mind, body and spirit– and provide several opportunities to encourage and empower you toward improved health. Engage in bible studies and discipleship classes. Learn how putting Christ first and center of your health & fitness transforms us toward thriving lives. Experience how combining biblical and lifestyle principles help nurture and sustain healthy habits. Join a fitness class or activity group that combine faith, fitness and fellowship for all levels of physical and spiritual health & fitness.
