LIVING HEALTHY AND WHOLE IN CHRIST
Don’t you realize that your body is the temple of the Holy Spirit, who lives in you and was given to you by God? You do not belong to yourself, for God bought you with a high price. So you must honor God with your body (I Corinthians 6:19-20 NIV).
Beginning Sunday evening, January 24, at 5PM, we will begin a six week emphasis on Holy and Healthy Living! This is not a dieting class but rather a comprehensive study on healthy living. Experts from the Nursing and Health Science Departments at Gardner-Webb will be leading classes on healthy habits, benefits of healthy food choices (Including what should I buy that’s organic?), preparing healthy meals for families on the go and preparing healthy meals for singles. Other classes will be on diabetes, heart disease, benefits of basic exercise / fall prevention and the last class will be on mental health and well being. If you are experiencing dis-ease in any area of your life it’s going to affect your whole being. Even the Bible tells us that when one member suffers, the whole body suffers (I Corinthians 12:26).
Please help in communicating these classes to friends, neighbors and throughout our community.

FREE SHOWING OF MOVIE “War Room”
January 30, 2016
Boiling Springs Baptist Church- Life Enrichment Center
From the award-winning creators of Fireproof and Courageous comes WAR ROOM, a compelling drama with humor and heart that explores the power that prayer can have on marriages, parenting, careers, friendships, and every other area of our lives.
Tony and Elizabeth Jordan seemingly have it all—great jobs, a beautiful daughter, and their dream house. But appearances can be deceiving. Tony and Elizabeth Jordan’s world is actually crumbling under the strain of a failing marriage. While Tony basks in his professional success and flirts with temptation, Elizabeth’s bitterness only increases.
But their lives take an unexpected turn when Elizabeth’s newest client, Miss Clara, challenges Elizabeth to establish a prayer “war room” and a battle plan of prayer for her family. As Elizabeth begins to fight for her family, Tony must decide if he will make amends.
As Miss Clara wisely says, “Victories don’t come by accident!” A #1 movie in theaters, WAR ROOM is filled with more of the authentic characters loved by millions in previous Kendrick Brothers’ films and a vivid reminder that prayer is a powerful weapon.
Small Group Studies
Sign up for small group studies based from the movie (do not have to watch the movie to attend). Studies will begin the week of February 7, 2016.
