Three in One!

While we could write a blog about the Triune God, this blog is focused on another type of three-in-one entity: Race for Hope 2015.

Race for Hope is three events wrapped into one fun-filled day the entire family can participate in!

On Saturday, June 13 at 8 am, there is a 10K course with a hill designed for you serious runners!

Then, at 8:10 am, we start a 5K race for runners who like to compete but aren’t ready for the challenge of a 10K.

Finally, at 8:20 am, we have a fun 5K walk that is great for the whole family. It’s a leisurely walk through a beautiful, shady neighborhood with fellow believers in Christ. Sweet fellowship indeed!

If you’d like to register as a participant in any of these three events, please visit our race website to register. Each registration receives a sharp event t-shirt and a packet of goodies.

Another way you can help us with this community event is to volunteer. The commitment is only for one morning from 7 am to 10:30 or 11 am. There are a variety of ways to volunteer. Please visit our volunteer site if you’re interested in partnering with us in this way!

Finally, since this is one of our few fundraisers, you could help by sponsoring a runner on one of the teams on our  donation page. We ask each team captain to raise $1,000.00 in support and it would greatly bless them if you prayerfully considered contributing to their efforts. Our motivation for working hard to raise financial support is because the Gospel is true, and because we want others to know that God offers hope!

We are excited Race for Hope 2015 as we seek to use this as an opportunity to reach our community with the message of the Gospel preached by seminary students and the power of Christ to transform young women’s lives!
