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)

Lutheran Resource in Response to Gun Violence

The Evangelical Lutheran Church in America, saddened by the all-too-frequent occurrences of gun violence in the U.S., invites you on a journey of prayer, scripture, stories, and church teachings with this resource, A 60-Day Journey Towards Justice in a Culture of Gun Violence - an ELCA Resource  Through daily observances, it calls us to work toward the prevention of gun violence as people of God who strive for justice and peace in all the world. It may be used for individual reflection, group Bible study, adult education sessions, and congregational daily devotions. This began on June 16 but can be used at any time.
