Faith, Activity, and Nutrition Program

The COVID-19 pandemic has underscored the importance of addressing chronic health conditions and health disparities. As churches consider how to address members’ physical and mental health concerns, the University of South Carolina Prevention Research Center is making a timely resource available to assist with planning and putting healthy practices in place. The Faith, Activity, and Nutrition (FAN) online training helps churches create healthier environments that support physical activity and healthy eating for members and the communities they serve.

 

As the New Year approaches and members look for ways to reconnect, FAN also provides a free, fun, and effective way to help congregants recommit to their health goals as a body. Many FAN activities can be put into place virtually! FAN is an established, proven, and effective program developed at the University of South Carolina. Over 300 churches have been trained in FAN to help their congregations become stronger in health!

The FAN Online Training is FREE* and includes 8 engaging lessons and resources to support members in making healthy choices.

 

FAN supports churches to:

  •           increase opportunities for physical activity and healthy eating,
  • create guidelines for physical activity and healthy eating,
  • engage church leaders in FAN goals and support their health, and
  • share health messages with members.

 

Enrollment is open now for January 2022. Please visit our website for more information, or to complete an interest form today:  http://prevention.sph.sc.edu/projects/fantraining.htm  Make 2022 your church’s year for health!

 

May you “prosper in all things and be in health, just as your soul prospers” – III John 1:2 (NKJV)

Prayer from the Roman Catholic Archdiocese

A Prayer for Thanksgiving

For the expanding grandeur of creation, worlds known and unknown, galaxies beyond galaxies, filling us with awe and challenging our imaginations:
We give thanks this day.
For this fragile planet earth, its times and tides, its sunsets and seasons:
We give thanks this day.
For the joy of human life, its wonders and surprises, its hopes and achievements:
We give thanks this day.
For our human community, our common past and future hope,
our oneness transcending all separation,
our capacity to work for peace and justice in the midst of hostility and oppression:
We give thanks this day.
For high hopes and noble causes, for faith without fanaticism,
for understanding of views not shared:
We give thanks this day.
For all who have labored and suffered for a fairer world,
who have lived so that others might live in dignity and freedom:
We give thanks this day.
For human liberty and sacred rites;
for opportunities to change and grow, to affirm and choose:
We give thanks this day.
We pray that we may live not by our fears but by our hopes,
not by our words but by our deeds.
We give thanks this day.

Amen.
