Prayer Walking- The Messiah Way

The Messiah Wellness Committee would like to invite you to join us for 1-mile prayer walks, a simple discipline guaranteed to reap body, mind, and soul benefits. Prayer walks will be held each week on Wednesdays at 12:45 and Thursdays at 4:00, beginning March 21. All walks will depart from the Library. Silent walking offers an incredible opportunity for us to reflect, respond, and renew together.
