Journey to Bethlehem
“In those days a decree went out from Emperor Augustus that all the world should be registered...”
You know the story, but have you walked the walk? 96.1 miles. That’s how far Joseph and Mary walked from Nazareth to Bethlehem to be registered. 96.1 miles. Who walked with them? How long did it take? What did they pack? Where did they stay along the way? We don’t know, but we can walk the 96.1 miles from Nazareth to Bethlehem in the 15 weeks before Christmas.
Our journey to Bethlehem will require only 1.96 miles of walking each day or 13.72 miles each week and all are invited to participate! To make the journey more enjoyable, Glenn members and friends will lead one or more walks each of the next 7 weeks. Participants will walk the additional miles each week, on their own. The use a pedometer is encouraged but not required!
Accompany us on this journey for 6 miles, 60 miles, or walk all the way to Bethlehem!
Scout Holiday Fundraisers
Let Cub Scout Pack 6 help you enjoy your holiday season!
Leaf Raking Fundraiser: For a $50-$100 donation (depending on yard size) kindergarten-fifth graders and their parents will rake and blow your fall leaves away. This fundraiser helps support our Big Trip in the spring. To schedule your yard raking, email David Brown at email@example.com.
Awaiting the Already: Advent Reflection Book Available
For small groups or personal devotions, pick up a copy of this year’s Advent study book in the church office. The Christmas story we know so well is really a compilation of accounts found in each of the Gospels. Awaiting the Already takes us on a tour through the Gospel narratives, showing us what parts of the Christmas story come from which Gospel, and helps us to recognize that each Gospel writer invites us to encounter a fresh experience of the birth of Christ. Each chapter offers questions for reflection and discussion, a brief prayer, and a focus for the week. Books available in the church office (suggested donation $8) or order a copy online.
