Stepping Forward as a Vibrant Family

In order to be a Vibrant Family—its members must be equipped and help equip others to stay healthy so that we will have the strength, energy and endurance to serve in the image of Jesus the Christ. To that end, 40 team members from First United Methodist Church Winter Park recently completed a Move 60 Challenge competition. Our team was composed of our pastors, staff, and laity.
Move 60 Challenge is sponsored by Healthy Central Florida and funded by Florida Hospital and the Winter Park Health Foundation. There were 187 teams from Winter Park, Maitland and Eatonville. This 60-day challenge is designed to motivate and to get people moving by recording steps for 60 days. Participants could do a variety of activities, in addition to walking, which was converted into steps. Activities such as biking, swimming, dancing or gardening were activities that many of our members did instead of walking or running – it was all about moving and being active. Through the 60-day challenge, members developed good regular practices that hopefully will continue once the competition was over. First UMC of Winter Park has won last three competitions over the past year, having the most participants who successfully completed the competition. We are looking forward to the next challenge!

Do you not know that your bodies are temples of the Holy Spirit, who is in you, whom you have received from God? You are not your own: you were bought at a price. Therefore honor God with your bodies.” 1 Corinthians 6:19-20
