The Healthy Living program exists to create opportunities to promote and provide a healthy way of life. We believe that a full and whole life captivates and engages the community, inspiring leaders that model the love of Christ. We believe in fostering a culture that is rich in legacy and thrives on togetherness, achievement, and leadership to encourage fitness and healthy diet. Healthy community and healthy living go hand-in-hand.
The key expression of this vision is Empower Sports, sports leagues and wellness opportunities offered to children, youth, and adults in the neighborhood. Our program is always growing! We currently offer flag football, basketball, and soccer leagues for students in Pre K - 4th grade. In each of these leagues, our players practice one time per week and play on Saturday mornings. Empower Sports also hosts clinics and/or camps throughout the year for each of these sports to improve the fundamentals of the players. In addition, we offer a triathlon for students in our after-school program. Students are able to receive swimming lessons and practice running on a weekly basis. The training culminates with the students participating in their own mini-triathlon to showcase their skills.
Every aspect of Empower Sports provides a unique opportunity for leaders in the neighborhood to aid in the spiritual formation of youth. Sports offer a platform to very naturally teach and implement important life skills as games are practiced and played.
