"I've come that you might have life
and have it more abundantly."
 
John 10:10

As part of the Georgia-Cumberland Conference our mission is as follows...
* "We minister to promote total health,
including the physical, mental, spiritual, and social,
among all those with whom we come in contact,
reflecting Jesus for the purpose of bringing people to Him."

Our goal is to challenge and educate individuals in health improvement.

Currently Waycross SDA church
is becoming involved in the  InStep for Life  program.
We are encouraged weekly to get moving!
 
 

** InStep for Life  is a new division-wide program
designed to promote individual exercise.

It consists of three parts:
cardio vascular, strength, and flexibility training.

Join with thousands of other Adventist Christians
all over the North American Division
who are interested in improving their fitness and health.
Experience the "abundant life" God intended for us to enjoy.

"Don't you know that your body
is the temple of the Holy Spirit, Who lives in you
and was given to you by God?...Honor God with your body."
 
I Corinthians 6:19,20

Regular physical activity is strong medicine.
Research shows that exercise is one of the best ways
to prevent serious disease and improve the quality of health and life.
