Are you ready for a CHALLENGE??

So for the months of March/April (that's 10 classes) we are encouraging you to participate in our Spring challenge. This is going to be an attendance challenge. We know that summer is right around the corner and we want you to start building your accountability buddies to stay active and to count on to pray for or with. It's more than building healthy bodies….it is about building healthy lives together. So for the next 10 classes when you check in with the iPad, you will also be responsible for filling your name out on a paper and putting it in the jar at the check in table. Now, please write where we can read it. If we can't read your writing (because we know you are in a hurry to get into class) it will not count. For every class that you come, put your name in the jar. We will tally up each class and keep count of how many of the 10 classes you come to. Now here is where it gets fun…for each new person that you bring, you get to put your name in 1 time for each NEW friend. If you bring 5 NEW friends then you get your name in 1 time for attendance then 5 more times for your friends. This is up to you to keep track of. Once your friends come and fill out their paperwork they are welcome to start the challenge as well. They can start bringing friends that are NEW and the cycle keep going. NEW people are only counted on their first class…then they are part of the family and can start earning points themselves. If this doesn't make sense, just come early to class and we can explain it to you.  At the end of the 10 weeks, the person with the most points wins this..

We have it already and we are dying to give it away.

Now the other part of the challenge is more for you to do alone…Start coming up with your accountability group for the summer. Get phone numbers, email addresses, addresses of houses or places for your group to get together and pray or walk. We want you to stay as "active" as you can in your physical life and spiritual life!

We LOVE you, ladies!
Now let's see you step up and win the CHALLENGE!!

Oh Holy Night

O holy night, the stars are brightly shining;
It is the night of the dear Savior’s birth!
Long lay the world in sin and error pining,
Till He appeared and the soul felt its worth.
A thrill of hope, the weary soul rejoices,
For yonder breaks a new and glorious morn.
Fall on your knees, O hear the angel voices!
O night divine, O night when Christ was born!
O night, O holy night, O night divine!

Led by the light of faith serenely beaming,
With glowing hearts by His cradle we stand.
So led by light of a star sweetly gleaming,
Here came the wise men from Orient land.
The King of kings lay thus in lowly manger,
In all our trials born to be our Friend!
He knows our need—to our weakness is no stranger.
Behold your King; before Him lowly bend!
Behold your King; before Him lowly bend!

Truly He taught us to love one another;
His law is love and His Gospel is peace.
Chains shall He break for the slave is our brother
And in His Name all oppression shall cease.
Sweet hymns of joy in grateful chorus raise we,
Let all within us praise His holy Name!
Christ is the Lord! O praise His name forever!
His pow’r and glory evermore proclaim!
His pow’r and glory evermore proclaim!

Accountability group?

We encourage you to talk/text/email with your accountability group once a week this month. If you need a group please let us know!!

  • Behavioral accountability is choosing to be honest with another person or group of people about our obvious habits or tendencies.  Do we overspend or blow our budget? Are we lazy at our jobs? Do we gossip or slander someone’s reputation? Do we lose our temper with our spouses or children? Are we addicted to anything? Is technology or work stealing attention from our families? Do we lack spiritual discipline? Do we neglect making opportunities to share our faith? Confessing these sorts of struggles is very important: it stops bad habits from festering into deeper issues. But it is only the beginning of helpful accountability.
  • Motivational accountability is choosing to be honest with another person or group of people about the desires and thoughts that truly drive and move us. This is about getting to the “sin beneath the sin.” It may not even be sin of which we are consciously aware, so we need another set of eyes to help us see what we cannot. Motivational accountability requires really knowing one another and asking the hard heart questions. Are we fascinated with Christ and the gospel? Do I find great joy in God? What do we desire more than anything else? What do we find ourselves daydreaming or fantasizing about? Do we covet anything? Do we think more about how we can serve ourselves or how we can boast in Christ and serve others? Are we holding on to bitterness? Where do our thoughts drift to when we enter social settings? Where do our thoughts take us when we are all alone? What lies do we believe that continually drive us to disobey God? Do we love anything more than God?
We would love to hear how your groups are doing!!

Costume Zumba is 29 this month. Start planning what you are going to wear. We will have drawings for prizes for everyone that participates!!
