Eat to Thrive: The 14-Day Cleanse


MPLS: Mon Apr 24-May 15, 6:30-7:45pm, Lounge

"...your body is a temple of the Holy Spirit within you, which you have from God..." (1 Corinthians 6:19)

How are you feeling about the temple that is your body? More importantly, how are you feeling IN this temple? Most of us would agree that there is room for improvement, that we could do a better job of honoring the temple God gave us. This four-part class is designed to help you learn how to honor your body by eating food that energizes you and by listening to what works with your uniquely wonderful, God-given body. Mount Olivet member Kris Roach will provide the nutritional science and spiritual inspiration to guide you through a safe and healthy two-week cleanse that will transform the way you approach food and wellness. Whether you attended the January "Eat to Thrive" introduction or have recently decided it's time to break up with foods that make you feel badly, you will want to be part of this class. 

Cost: $80. Register online by Wed Apr 19.
