Walking to Jerusalem Program

Spring is coming soon, and it’ll be time to get outside and move!

To help get us going, The Health Ministry Committee will be sponsoring a virtual Walk from Kalamazoo to Jerusalem (7,633 miles)!

We will track our miles on a wall in the Gathering Place. We will encourage EVERYONE to move and keep track of your own ‘journey’ over the fifty days between Easter and Pentecost. Whether you walk, run, bike, swim, practice yoga or Tai Chi, or just walk from your sitting room to the dining room – keep track of your steps or time. Can’t walk? Count minutes of stationery exercise; every 20 minutes equals one mile. We’ll be adding everyone’s miles together; updating a map every week. Watch for more details in the weekly announcements!

Get moving today!
