Join Us with Your Actions!

The walk to Bethlehem is an imaginary journey that will motivate us to be active and grow in faith. On our journey, we will cross that Atlantic Ocean and travel through Europe as we move towards the Holy Land.

As we approach Advent we will continue to journey with Joseph and Mary towards the City of David and move into the story that leads us all to the Christ Child. You can participate by walking, running, swimming, cycling, and many other ways. Then submit your activities or any other kind of exercise you do, and we can “convert” it all into miles towards Bethlehem. This allows us to count any physical activity you report to us as miles toward Bethlehem. You can submit your miles or activity by following this link.

You may also simply drop a note in the offering plate, send mail or by email.

Make sure to include:

  • Your full name
  • What activity you completed; walking, running, steps count, etc.
    • See the chart for help!
  • And your total miles, or steps, or time you were active.

Any activity will not only be good for you but it will also help us all get closer to our goal of reaching Bethlehem by Christmas.
