MARQUETTE - Bethel Baptist Church, 829 Grove St., Marquette, will host a First Place 4 Health program, a faith-based weight loss plan supported and endorsed by registered dietitians and physicians. Winter meetings begin with an orientation at 5 p.m. Thursday, Jan. 19.
Meeting in weekly support groups, participants follow a 12-week curriculum centered around achieving balance in four essential areas: emotional, spiritual, mental and physical. First Place 4 Health encourages members to adopt practical disciplines, including regular attendance and fellowship, prayer, Scripture reading and Bible study, Scripture memory and keeping a food record and eating well and exercising.
The First Place 4 Health program has delivered faith-based health and weight management instruction and support to small groups meeting in churches since 1981. bers
