Faith. Activity. Nutrition is a faith-based program made to create a healthy church environment.

The South Carolina Conference of the United Methodist Church is partnering with the Prevention Research Center at the University of South Carolina to offer "Faith, Activity, and Nutrition" - a free faith-based program that works to create a healthy church environment.

FAN is not an exercise program or a cooking class. Instead, FAN helps churches to create an environment conductive to physical activity and healthy eating. UMC volunteers, trained in the FAN program, will work with church committees to help them make changes to their church environment. For example, church leaders learn how to build physical activity into regular church activities. They also help church cooks modify recipes and menus to make traditional foods healthier - such as bake chicken instead of fried - and encourage them to switch to more fresh fruits, vegetables, and whole grains.

Water Aerobics at Wannamaker Park

Mondays and Wednesdays at 6:30 PM (Rain day: Thursday)

Water aerobics are just about perfect. Even though being in the pool seems very relaxing, it is still giving our hearts and muscles a great workout. Water exercise can even put you in a better frame of mind. The class is led by Debra Baugh, our F.A.N. ministry leader.

The June session is $72 and includes 9 classes. The July session is $56 and includes 7 classes. The August session is $32 for 4 classes.

Call 843-795-4386 to register.
