Year of Health (March Update)

Months of Emphasis

Each month, a topic is selected for special focus. March is for organ donations; April, fitness month; May, older persons month; and June, men’s health. Look for helpful info during these months.

The Country Music Marathon

The Country Music Marathon will take over downtown April 24 – 26. Registration is Thursday – Friday and we will help staff a booth in the Music City Center. Friday, we’ll host a pasta dinner at First for up to 1,000 people. Saturday morning, runners line up on Broadway and we will serve as good neighbors with available bathrooms, water, and coffee. Volunteers are needed.

The Year of Health Table

In the Foyer is a table dedicated to events and info for that month. There’s also a healthy snack available. On the final Sunday of each month, a medical professional will be there to check blood pressure and answer questions.

Preaching Series

Beginning April 27, our pastor will preach a series on Health. He will cover the five emphases of The Daniel Plan—faith, focus, family, fitness, and food.

The Daniel Plan

We are currently offering the 6-week book study on Sunday mornings and evenings and Wednesday evenings. That cycle will begin again April 27, the Sunday after Easter. Consider enrolling in one of the classes!


At least once a quarter, we will offer helpful seminars like the Stress and Anger Management classes that were offered in January. Look for a class in April. 3M (third Monday lunch for adults) and other Sunday evening classes will also address health issues periodically.
