“Walk to Jerusalem” is a journey through Lent that encourages members of all ages to increase their physical activity, spiritual growth and cultural awareness through an imaginary walk to Jerusalem. The church will collect and track miles from Ash Wednesday, March 2, through Easter Sunday, April 17. A “mile” is 20 minutes of any form of continuous spiritual, physical or voluntary activity.
