"Lose 2 Live" Challenge - "The kingdom of God is not eating and drinking, but righteousness and peace, and joy in the Holy Spirit."
Please join us in journey in our "Lose 2 Live" Challenge. The goal of this challenge is not only to lose physical pounds, but also support and encourage one another to a more healthy lifestyle, through a community effort we can achieve. Each week you will weigh in Saturday, on your own. This is all on the honor system. Place amount of weight loss in a container (marked for this). All losses will be added up and each person will donate twenty-five cents per pound. There will be a chart to show our progress. This money will be used to purchase small items for the church.
