What is a virtual First Place 4 Health group?
A virtual First Place 4 Health group meets online each week using a free app available for your phone, Ipad or computer. The virtual group follows the standard First Place 4 Health meeting format.
Each week we meet for seventy-five minutes. The first fifteen minutes we share about our week. You’ll find encouragement and help setting strategies for the next week. After the first fifteen minutes we open in prayer, review the prior week’s Class Challenge, spend time on a Wellness Topic and then discuss the Bible study.
Another typical component of a First Place 4 Health meeting is the weigh in. For your virtual group, weighing in is done on your own. Several hours prior to the meeting, you will send an image of your scale reading to your leader. Another component is the Live It Tracker. Each week, you will track your food and other wellness goals. The day of class, you will send an image of your Tracker to your leader. Your leader will go into more detail during the first meeting. Weights and Live It Tracker’s are confidential.
How does it work?
Virtual meetings require a web cam. Some web cams are built into your device (laptop, tablet or smart phone). Desktop computers may need a web cam. Consider purchasing one starting at $25 online or in the electronics section of your local retailer. The web conferencing is easy to set up. The first time you use the software, you will download a free application (zoom.us) for your device. Your class leader can help you with this step.
Can anybody join?
Yes! Whether you have been in First Place 4 Health or this is your first time, whether you want to lose 10lbs or 100lbs, all are welcome. However, group size limited to ten participants. Click here to join an Online Group.
What books and materials do we use?
Each participant needs a First Place 4 Health Member’s Kit and Bible study. More information about what Bible study you are using is found on the event page of your selected class. See links below. Order your materials directly from the First Place 4 Health Online Store at FP4H.com.
Here’s what people are saying about their online First Place 4 Health class.
“Honestly, I felt it was an excellent experience. Our group was so amazing, you could tell God put it together! I felt like things just really clicked with me this time!”
“I loved the "no pressure" gentle approach. I have a rebellious nature and being pressured would not work for me. Encouragement and suggestions, supported with scripture is a perfect combination.”
