Voices: Does your congregation promote physical as well as spiritual fitness?

Our preacher is also a health coach, and he has just started a fitness class on Wednesday night. It includes Bible study and help to live a healthier life.

With the approval of our elders, my daughter and I are hosting a TOPS (weight-loss) group and a HELP (Healthy Everyday Living Plan) group using our fellowship hall as the location for our community. It is a work in progress, and we hope to use spiritual wellness in our programs.

I started taking karate at Kenpo for Christ at Sherrod Avenue Church of Christ in Florence, Ala. The karate was free, and it was used as a ministry to share Christ with others. The preacher was the instructor.

We have had fitness ministries in the past, and currently we have quite a few members that bike and run marathons together.  … Our elders are greatly focused on the general health issues of the congregation.
