Walking Group    Emmanuel's Walking Group

The Walking Team consists of an informal group of walkers of various ages, levels, and speeds. Not everyone participates every day, nor does everyone complete the usual two-mile walk. On Saturdays (and sometimes on other days), we meet for coffee and conversation following the walk.
We occasionally schedule special walks at other locations, such as Johnson Park in Collierville and the Greenline, or participate in special events, such as the Church Health Center’s Walk as One.

Mondays, Wednesdays, and Saturdays at 9:00 a.m. (8:30 a.m. in Summer months)

Evening Group: Mondays at 7 p.m. – Meet in front of Sanctuary

On Monday, Wednesday, and Saturday we meet at the entrance of Holmes Park, 2440 Hickory Crest Drive. In case of rain or extreme temperatures, we meet at Ridgeway Baptist Church’s Christian Life Center, 2500 Ridgeway Road.


Fitness Class

This is a one-hour Total Fitness class with weight-bearing and aerobic workouts that target the entire body. Adjustments are provided to accommodate various fitness levels.

You may bring your own weights and mats or use those provided by the church. Most participants use fitness balls, but exercises can be adjusted for those who do not have them.

Tuesdays and Thursdays at 9:00 a.m.

Classes meet in room 108 (Friendship Room). Enter the church through the doors closest to the church office (in center of building). Press the buzzer and the door will be unlocked for you.

Your first class is free. Later classes are $5. You may pay for classes individually or buy a 10-session ($50) or 20-session ($100) card that can be punched for fitness or yoga classes. You pay only for classes that you attend.
