Take a look at what happens when a local church takes an active interest in the health of its congregation and the community at large. Holly Springs Baptist Church partnered with the county and MountainWise for support and guidance in order to make the healthy choice the easy choice for its congregation and the folks in their area. They created programs, open to the public, that work to combat obesity and get folks moving. Their healthcare committee initiated the first faith-based healthy eating class in WNC. Their belief is that people who eat healthy and move more live a better life. Holly Springs Baptist Church is a model for how a faith-based organization can affect meaningful change to improve the emotional, spiritual, physical, and economic health of their community.
