Downsizers: This is an SMCC Life Group designed to help improve both physical and emotional health. “Downsizers” will focus on a biblically based healthy lifestyle (food, fellowship, exercise, weigh-ins). The members will agree to hold themselves and each other accountable by praying for one another and supporting each other in the journey towards a downsized waistline, lower blood pressure, and glucose levels. The group will meet every Wednesday at 6:00 PM for thirty to forty-five minutes in the Multi-Purpose Room starting August 4, 2021.

Wednesday Night Gathering: Please reference the summer schedule on the calendar for the Wednesday gatherings. There is a weather contingency plan in place for inclement weather conditions. If there is inclement weather, plan to meet at the church for a game night in the multi-purpose room. *All ages/classes are participating.
