We are pleased that you are interested in creating the healthiest worship environment possible to support your congregation members to lead a healthy lifestyle. Your interest is shared by many partners in our community and LiveWell Greenville aims to be a resource to which you can turn for best practices and model programs, connections to local resources, technical assistance and other support.
After piloting the initiative at Long Branch Baptist Church beginning in 2011, two specific strengths were recognized immediately:
- The importance for the leadership to lead by words and deeds;
- And the necessity of passion and desire on the part of the congregant to effect change in all areas of their lives.
Regardless of your congregation’s starting point, the LiveWell Greenville Healthy Congregational Toolkit (available soon) will serve as a resource to assist you in developing a culture and environment that facilitates healthy eating and physical activity. The resources included coincide with a five-step process to guide your congregational wellness efforts:
LiveWell Greenville values your leadership in helping to make Greenville one of the healthiest places to live in the nation and we are excited to be a partner with you and your place of worship. We can achieve this together because all faiths depend on a spirit of ‘togetherness and support!’
