For Church Attendees and Members of the Goshen Community and Beyond.....
Goshen on the Go (Exercise)
Goshen On the Go exercise group meets at Goshen Baptist Church three times weekly. There is no charge and no equipment is required. The group walks using the Leslie Sansone walking tapes. We meet at 7 p.m. on Monday and Thursday evenings and at 10 a.m. on Saturday. We usually walk for 30 minutes which equals two (2) miles. The tapes are appropriate for beginners as well as seasoned walkers.
Research has shown that 20 to 30 minutes of walking three times a week is beneficial for the heart and overall health. That amount of walking done daily is even better. Walking is one of the best all around forms of exercise and is better for joint health than running, especially among middle aged and older people.
We welcome you to join us at one or more of our sessions. As with any new exercise activity, we encourage you to check with your physician before starting.
No need to pre-register. Just show up!
Every Friday evening at 630pm the wonderful Yasuko Ogashiwa, welcomes everyone (guys and gals) to come and do yoga with her. Yasuko, a very patient and fun teacher, adjusts the program to suit the experience of the attendees (who are mostly novices). Yasuko works with each individual to help them learn the poses/positions and attendees move at their own pace. All have a great time and it’s amazing how much more you can do from week to week. Please bring your yoga mat. Cost is $5/week.
Or just show up on Friday evening.
Adopt a Highway
Goshen Baptist Church participates in the West Virginia Division of Highways and the Dept. of Environmental Protection, REAP, program's Adopt-A-Highway. The program was established in the late 1980s to improve the quality of the state's environment by encouraging public involvement in the elimination of highway litter. Its objective is to save taxpayer money by increasing public awareness and to serve as an educational tool by focusing on the consequences of littering. The program offers volunteers the opportunity to take charge of their own environment by making a positive effort to create a cleaner, more aesthetic place in which to live.
As a community service GBC has adopted the Goshen Road beginning at the 119 intersection and ending at the intersection of the 4-H Camp Rd. covering approximately 2 1/2 miles. Volunteers pick up litter three times a year participating in the statewide campaigns in the spring and fall.
