Find a Walk
Virtual walk beginning October 19 and ending November 1
In-person event will be on November 1
We’re excited about partnering with Healing Hands International to dig some clean water wells! Our goal is $30,000, and when we get there we’ll be able to dig 4 wells for communities in the developing world! Our Walk4Water event will be Sunday afternoon, November 1. 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. Please also make plans to stay after the walk for a joint worship service!
Virtual walk beginning October 24 and ending November 7

Have you ever been sitting on the couch, wishing you had a glass of water, but at the same time thought, "Nah, I don't want to walk to the kitchen"? You're not alone; we're all guilty of doing that at least a couple of times in our lives, but let me ask you, how far is that actual walk to the kitchen? Twenty, maybe thirty feet? Well, what if your walk was four, maybe five miles...at the least. Guess what--for some people not that far from us, it is.
You can help make that walk a little shorter though! Come join us at Maysville Church of Christ on November 7 and let's take part in making someone's #Walk4Water just a little bit shorter by raising funds to help a third-world community in need have a water well drilled so that water can be made more easily accessible, and maybe even spread some love and the good Word, as well. We look forward to walking with you!
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 Malawi.
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.
