Do you like to walk?

  • Do you need to walk for exercise?
  • Can walking be a spiritual practice?
  • Do you like to walk and talk with others?

Jan Vauthrin and Pastor Sherrie would like to invite you to join them each Monday from 12:15-1:00 pm. We’ll gather and start with a brief devotional thought and then take off walking on the nearby sidewalks. We’ll begin and end at the church under the canopy in the 2nd Ave. parking lot. No need to reserve your spot. Just show up!

  • On May 3, we’ll begin receiving your reservations for May 9. (capacity of 30 for each service)
  • On May 10, we’ll begin receiving your reservations for May 16. (capacity of 130 for 9:00 am Sanctuary service)
