WALK TO BLESS THE SCHOOLS
SUNDAY, SEPTEMBER 10
A two-mile (one-mile option is available) walk will begin at church at 11:45 am and will proceed, on the sidewalks, past Richards School, St. Monica School, Whitefish Bay Middle and High Schools, and finally our own Tree of Life Preschool and Carpenter’s Shop Daycare. (See the map)
All walkers will receive a FREE event t-shirt! Along the route, walkers will pass four water/prayer stations. At each station and at the finish, walkers will be given a sticker that is one-fifth of a prayer of blessing of schools, not just the schools that the walkers will stop; all schools in four directions. At the finish line, people will be encouraged to read the complete prayer in a group.
On the church lawn, with live music of Sheltered Reality’s choreographed drumming, everyone (walkers and non-walkers alike!) is encouraged to take advantage of the food trucks and enjoy some dessert from our own food ministry, as well as peruse information about our church groups at their tables. Everything gets underway immediately after the 10:30 am worship service.
Invite your friends, relatives, co-workers, neighbors in the community to come and walk to bless the schools – including children/youth, their teachers, and the staff who support them, and learn about the ministries and missions that our church has to offer this fall.
Register your participation and volunteer here! Yes, we need a number of volunteers to help with water stations, as crossing guards and more.
