At First Place 4 Health, we believe, committed, authentic community changes everything.  Without someone to lean on when things get tough, we are often tempted to be too hard on ourselves, or even quit entirely.  We're more able to press onward in the face of difficulty.  We believe that after Christ, community is the most powerful catalyst for tangible, sustainable change in our health.  It's the difference-maker in nearly every area of our lives; as Ecclesiastes says, a cord of three strands is not easily broken.  Walking hand-in-hand motivates us, encourages us, and unites us in our journey toward wellness.

The tremendous success of First Place 4 Health is due to its biblical approach to weight loss and overall health management, which puts Christ first and improves every area of a person’s life. This Christian weight-loss and healthy living program has guided hundreds of thousands of people to a healthy lifestyle and a closer walk with the Lord. First Place 4 Health offers a series of Bible Studies. These studies address many issues of everyday life and provide opportunities for growth in Christ. Members complete a weekly Bible study which—combined with prayer and Scripture reading—helps to impart God's strength, empowering members to overcome temptation and make long-lasting lifestyle changes.

The First Place 4 Health group begins Wednesday, September 21, 2022. They will meet on Wednesdays, from 6-7:30 pm in Room 10 for 13 weeks. Cost is $10.  The facilitators are Jamie Badders and Linda Huebner. Please call the church office at (979)798-2340 to sign up.

Find help and healing for the hurt of separation and divorce. DivorceCare is a friendly, caring group of people who will walk alongside you through one of life’s most difficult experiences. Don’t go through separation or divorce alone. DivorceCare seminars and support groups are led by people who understand what you are going through and want to help. You will learn how to heal from the deep hurt of divorce and discover hope for your future.

You don’t have to go through it alone. Most people will tell you that separation and divorce are the most painful and stressful experiences they’ve ever faced. It’s a confusing time when you feel isolated and have lots of questions about issues you’ve never faced before. DivorceCare groups meet weekly to help you face these challenges and move toward rebuilding your life. Each session has two distinct elements:

A Seminar with Experts. During the first 30–40 minutes of the meeting, each DivorceCare group watches a video seminar featuring top experts on divorce and recovery subjects. These videos are produced in an interesting-to-watch television magazine format featuring expert interviews, real-life case studies, and on-location video.

A Support Group with Focus. After viewing the video, DivorceCare group participants spend time as a support group, discussing what was presented in that week’s video seminar and what is going on in the lives of group members.

How to join our DivorceCare group: The DivorceCare group can be joined at any time, during either semester.  The group will begin a new semester on Wednesday, September 14, 2022. They meet on Wednesdays from 6-8 pm in Room 8, for 13 weeks. Cost is $15.  The facilitator is Kimbrie Hamilton. Please call the church office at (979)798-2340 to sign up.

  

It hurts to lose someone. Find help at GriefShare. GriefShare is a friendly, caring group of people who will walk alongside you through one of life’s most difficult experiences. You don’t have to go through the grieving process alone.

How GriefShare works. It may be hard for you to feel optimistic about the future right now. If you’ve lost a spouse, child, family member, or friend, you’ve probably found there are not many people who understand the deep hurt you feel. GriefShare seminars and support groups are led by people who understand what you are going through and want to help. You’ll gain access to valuable GriefShare resources to help you recover from your loss and look forward to rebuilding your life. GriefShare groups meet weekly to help you face these challenges and move toward rebuilding your life. Each GriefShare session has three distinct elements:

Video seminar with experts. Each week your GriefShare group will watch a video seminar featuring top experts on grief and recovery subjects. These videos are produced in an interesting television magazine format featuring expert interviews, real-life case studies, dramatic reenactments, and on-location video.

Support group discussion with focus. After viewing the video, you and the other group members will spend time as a support group, discussing what was presented in that week’s video seminar and what is going on in your lives.

Personal study and reflection. During the week you will have the opportunity to use your workbook for further personal study of the grieving process and to help sort out your emotions through journaling. Your group will spend time discussing questions and comments from the workbook study.
