The First Place for Health Virtual Groups are designed for you. Join from home, a coffee shop, work, school, or wherever you are. Find the time that fits your busy lifestyle and get started on your journey to wellness.
A virtual group meets each week online for the purposes of encouraging and holding each other accountable. The online group follows the standard First Place for Health meeting format.
Each week we meet for seventy-five minutes. The first fifteen minutes we share about our week. You’ll find encouragement and help setting strategies for the next week. After the first fifteen minutes we open in prayer, review the prior week’s Healthy Challenge, spend time on a Wellness Topic and then discuss the Bible study.
For your online group, weighing in is done on your own. Several hours prior to the meeting, you will send an image of your scale reading to your leader. Another component is the Live It Tracker. Each week, you will track your food and other wellness goals. The day of group, you will send an image of your Tracker to your leader. Your leader will go into more detail during the first meeting. Weights and Live It Trackers are confidential.
Online meetings require a web cam. Some web cams are built into your device (laptop, tablet or smart phone). Desktop computers may need a web cam. Consider purchasing one starting at $25 online or in the electronics section of your local retailer. The web conferencing is easy to set up. The first time you use the software, you will download a free application (zoom.us) for your device. Your group leader can help you with this step.
Yes! Whether you have been in First Place for Health or this is your first time, whether you want to lose 10lbs or 100lbs, all are welcome. However, group size limited to twelve participants.
Each participant needs a My Place Member’s Kit. Information about what Bible study your group will use is found on the registration page of your selected group. See links below. Order your materials directly from the First Place for Health Online Store at FP4H.com.
Our program is designed so that anyone sensing the prompting may lead a group using our My Place for Leadership Kit. Our Virtual Group Leaders love the Lord and want to honor him by living balanced, healthy lives, and share their knowledge with others. They have experienced success through the First Place for Health program.

Here’s what people are saying about their online First Place for Health group.
“Honestly, I felt it was an excellent experience. Our group was so amazing, you could tell God put it together! I felt like things just really clicked with me this time!”
“I loved the “no pressure” gentle approach. I have a rebellious nature and being pressured would not work for me. Encouragement and suggestions, supported with scripture is a perfect combination.”
