Connect to Active Living

Has your congregation taken action to:

  • Develop internal policies to make active living options easier to access. (Ex. Make joint use agreements with members or community organizations to make congregation space available for physical activity; Adopt “Instant Recess” policies in congregational meetings and institutes)
  • Offer programs for the community to increase physical activity opportunities. (Ex: Start a walking group; Fitness class; Use outdoor space as activity lot for community; Use congregational property for community gardening)
  • Build community partnerships, collaboration & education for better physical activity. (Ex: Join in a city-wide effort to improve streets, sidewalks, bike paths and intersections; Encourage outdoor youth activities)
