Events Let's Get Started - MD/DC/VA

Saturday, January 5th, 201910:00 AM – 12:00 PM


Bringing First Place to your church and community is an awesome privilege as you witness lives radically changed.  We look to Christ for transforming lives as we journey together toward wellness: emotionally, spiritually, mentally and physically. As believers, we are free from the chains of the world that bind us--whether that's a number on a scale or expectations which we burden ourselves. First Place for Health believes in living in that freedom.

We don't do perfection. Instead, putting our trust in God, we walk hand-in-hand through the peaks and valleys of the road to physical wellness - however that may look - together.

During our time together we will cover:

  • Bringing a group to your church
  • Resources and materials needed
  • Meetings
  • Publicizing your group
  • Questions and Answers

First Lutheran Church
6300 Southern Maryland Blvd
Huntingtown, MD 20639

Cost is $5 each for materials.
