Walking the Community

As part of St. Paul’s mission-implementing, partnership grant, members and friends of St. Paul’s are invited to join together as we “walk the community.”  Through this campaign, we hope to learn more about the community in which we live, where God is already working, and how we may be a part of God’s work here, locally.

There are a number of ways to participate.

1. Wednesday Walks – Each Wednesday evening we will walk 1 to 2 miles of the community.  Starting locations are announced each Sunday and listed in the Walking the Community brochure.

2. Ride Alongs – If walking for more than a mile sounds like too much of a physical toll, you can still participate in a ride-along on the third Wednesday of the month.

3. Walking at your own pace – For them, the Wednesday walks may not be the best time of day.  Many people already are walking.  So we’ve made it easy for you to walk at your own pace.  All you need to do is fill out a response card that indicates who you walked with (pairs are great! and a cord with three strands is not easily broken), where you walked, and what you saw or experienced.

Our goal is to have 80% of St. Paul’s participate and cover as much of the area as we can.

We also hope to schedule special walks soon – some of these may include “night walks,” “walks w/ community leaders,” “walking together with other christians,” or in other areas – like Mulberry!  The best way to keep up-to-date is to sign up for St. Paul’s (e)pistle and follow us on facebook.  So take a second to click “like” and then lace up those shoes and come meet us out on the sidewalks!
