Movin’ Together 2018 – Break the Fast!
In choosing healthy fuel, it is important to know that all food is comprised of three macronutrients: Carbohydrates, Protein, and Fats. Obviously, the key is choosing whole and healthy options of these three categories. And, of these three, carbohydrates are the preferred source of fuel for the body.
These macronutrients are important to consume throughout the day, but this month we are focusing specifically on the importance of breakfast. Breakfast is a sort of unsung hero for overall health. This first meal of the day is often and easily neglected. However, the National Weight Loss Registry, (with over 10,000 members), reports that 78 % of those who have maintained their weight loss for over a year, eat breakfast every morning. Research also suggests that breakfast eaters not only weigh less, but also suffer from fewer chronic diseases than non-breakfast eaters.
Students Program Digital Instruments
Wellsboro’s Trinity Lutheran School hosted a hands-on Music STEM camp with PEERS Foundation and New Covenant Academy.
Science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM) was the camp’s focus as they tackled the challenge of creating music digitally. Middle school students enthusiastically jumped into building synthesizers, coding, and computer design in an effort to engineer their own unique sound.
Back to Basics – Good Friday Special
The story of the Bible is really one of God’s relationship with mankind – and that relationship was strained because of sin. In fact the Bible tells us that all have sinned – and sin separates us from God. The wages of sin is eternal separation from God. But in His love, He didn’t leave us to die in our sins. He sent Jesus to die for us. Christians call this “penal substitution” – he literally died in our place. He took the punishment we deserve so that we could be forgiven of sin and be set free.
