When New Life Church in Pittsburg, PA wants to make a change, they go all in. And by all in we mean the WHOLE CHURCH. We love how this community made a transformation for the long haul and are reaping the benefits of sticking together. Here’s how Marlyn tells their story.
Fit For the Fight Our journey with The Daniel Plan began in September 2012. It started when our Senior Pastor asked me to research what The Daniel Plan was and how it could be implemented in our church. He was planning a series of messages on how we have to be spiritually, mentally, physically, and financially fit to do the work God has called us to do.
We kicked off The Daniel Plan as a church in January of 2013. During the first year we planned several activities that included an exercise class and walking around the local mall as a group. With busy schedules and family responsibilities, we decided a Facebook group page would be a great forum to communicate with one another and to share encouragement and information. We also sent out a monthly email to share news, events, and links to free resources on The Daniel Plan website. As a church, we love to fellowship over food and focused on being more health conscious when we enjoyed meals together. Now we offer more fresh fruit and vegetables.
