Walking Ministry

The Emmanuel Walking Ministry has grown into a weekday opportunity for fellowship and exercise for senior adults from the church and community. Generally opened by 4:30 a.m., walkers can walk 20 laps around our gymnasium to equal one mile. Volunteer hosts have coffee made and light breakfast refreshments offered like granola bars, multi-grain breakfast bars, hot teas and other treats for those who participate to enjoy around round tables visiting with friends. This vital ministry provides a respite year around against loneliness, as well, and is appreciated by 30-40 people each day. The walking ministry closes at 9:30 each morning. Walking ministry operates each weekday with Christmas morning being the only day it is closed, weather permitting. For more information, please contact Rich Criss, ministry coordinator.
