Walking Club

Tuesday, February 12 | 11:40am–12:10pm

Meet us at the first level doors every Tuesday at 11:40am for a 30-minute walk. We will begin with an inspirational bible verse that will help set the intention for each walk.
Bible verse for Tuesday, February 12:
Isaiah 40:29-31 – He gives power to the faint, abundant strength to the weak. Though young men faint and grow weary, and youths stagger and fall, they that hope in the LORD will renew their strength, they will soar on eagles’ wings; They will run and not grow weary, walk and not grow faint.
