Mission: Serving God Through – Self, Church, and Community and Always Being Faithful
- By maintaining our body, we are better able to physically serve.
- By finding ways to be involved at church, we can serve God by helping one another
- By reaching outside the walls of our church, we can serve our community and world
Maintaining a strong body prepares us to better serve God. “Don’t you realize that your body is the temple of the Holy Spirit, who lives in you and was given to you by God? You do not belong to yourself, for God bought you with a high price. So you must honor God with your body.” 1 Corinthians 6:19-20
Introducing – BFO – Becoming Fit Outdoors – Trail Hiking

Walk/hike at your own pace. Meet new friends. Bring your family. Bring your pets (on a leash). Bring a water bottle, towel if you want and wear comfortable shoes and clothes.
