We are in the fourth week of our eight-week super fit family challenge.  If you are just joining us, read the program overview before getting started.

Week 4 Challenge:  Reduce sodas, fruit drinks and other sugary drinks by half.  Use half the amount of sugar and oils in recipes.  Begin serving water instead of juice or soda with family meals, 30 to 60 minutes before or two hours after meals. 

Exercise: Take 15-20 minutes digestives walks as a family after each meal (at least after dinner). If it is raining or too cold outside, you can walk around inside your home. Ask the youngest child to lead the “march” and make it fun.  If you have invited friends or family over for lunch of dinner, tell them to bring their walking shoes.  Re-test the family to see how many steps you each can climb, or how far you can quickly walk without getting short of breath.  Record your results and compare them to Week 1.

During the month of February, Metro will pay tribute to black history with the following weekly praise themes:

February 4 - African American theme

February 11 - African theme

February 18 - Caribbean theme

February 25 - Black history - past, present, future.  We are thrilled to present the renowned Howard University Gospel Choir in concert at 6:00 p.m. on February 25.  Admission is free; a freewill love offering will be collected.

Through praise and worship, the role of varied black cultures will be recognized each week.  Please plan to wear your African attire on the second Sabbath and your Caribbean attire on the third.  On the last Sabbath, the culmination of all black cultures will be highlighted as the past is embraced and as we look to God for the future.
