Wellness on Wednesday nights

Time: 6:00-7:00 p.m.

Dates: April 12th – May 3rd 


April 12 – Nutrition Part 1

Basic guidelines and healthy eating tips

News Flash - the Food Pyramid that many of us learned about in school was abandoned years ago because it was WRONG.  Do you know what is was replaced by?  Many of us lack the knowledge, self-discipline, and/or planning skills needed to eat a balanced diet.  Let’s turn to the experts for facts and assistance.  In this class, registered dietitians Mandy Patrick and Virginia Willingham Davis will teach us the updated standards and give their professional suggestions for healthy eating.


April 19 - Nutrition Part 2

Information addressing your nutrition needs

We all have questions about nutrition as it relates to our personal medical issues, daily routines and preferences.  A group of dietitians will help us focus our attention as we break into discussion groups on specific topics such as eating to lose weight, eating to prevent/manage chronic health problems, cooking for picky eaters, etc.  


April 26 – Sabbath Keeping

led by one of our pastors 

This class considers several questions:  What is the purpose of a sabbath?  How is sabbath keeping different from resting or taking a break from our normal daily schedule?  How do we honor the sabbath in our current hectic culture?    


May 3 – Wind Down Wednesday

a chance to breathe & reclaim your calm 

You know best what helps you relax and can choose how to spend the evening.  Unwind as you rotate in 10 or 15 minute intervals through options such as sitting in massage chairs, focusing on breathing, journaling, practicing yoga, playing with pet therapy animals, listening to music, etc.  FirstKids and youth programs will also include stress relieving activities so that we all feel refreshed as we wrap up WNA.
