Find a Walk
Please join us for a Walk4Water at Camp Wiregrass as part of our fall youth retreat. We are excited to help make a difference for people around the world who don't have the access to clean water that we do.
Water is an essential part of life, yet there are still many places in this world with limited access to clean water. The Rutherford County Walk4Water makes a life-changing difference in the world each year. Our community comes together with the common goal to raise money to dig wells in developing countries. These wells will bring clean water and with it, life to these communities. Last year we were able to fund a new well in Haiti.
As disciples of Jesus, we are called to be servant-hearted people who strive to make this world a better place. Jesus said that his true followers are those who care for others, especially those who are less fortunate and in need. In Matthew 25, Jesus teaches that to truly follow him and be his disciple means being compassionate and of assistance to those in need. This walk is an opportunity to show compassion and make a real difference to those who are in need. Please consider joining this cause by participating in our walk or by making a donation.
We’re excited about partnering with Healing Hands International to dig some clean water wells in Haiti! Our goal is $30,000, and when we get there we’ll be able to dig 4 wells for Haitian communities! Our Walk4Water event will be Sunday afternoon, November 17, at Homewood Central Park Pavilions 6 and 7. Registration begins at 1:30pm, and the walk starts at 2:00pm. Some will choose to walk the 4-mile distance out of respect for the millions of women and children in developing countries who walk this distance daily to get water, which — in most cases — is contaminated by different kinds of bacteria. Others will simply attend the event to show their support and raise awareness for this very treatable problem. It’s also an excellent opportunity to show our kids that we can make a difference in the lives of fellow human beings who are struggling.
We will once again host a Walk 4 Water this year on Saturday, November 23rd. Check in will be at 9:00am and we will begin the walk at 9:30am. We use this as an event to raise awareness for the need for clean drinking water.
This is a great opportunity to make your family and children aware of the need for clean drinking water in other places in the world, and we hope you will join us as we Walk 4 Water!
As a side note, please do not create a personal financial goal for this event. Instead, plan to also join us for our Day of Thanks and Giving service and save your financial contributions for the collection on that day. We will meet the overall financial goal for Walk 4 Water through the giving at that service as a part of our Day of Thanks and Giving collection.
