Witness Walk–Memphis Annual ConferencePosted: May 21, 2013
In just a few days we will gather at First United Methodist Church, Collierville, TN for the Memphis Annual Conference. I am looking forward to all that will be before as we share in excellent worship, dynamic Bible study, hear the ways in which God at work in our lives, reflect on our Mission field and hear the ways in which God is moving among us. I want to invite you to join Lynn and me as we participate in our First Annual Witness Walk!
At 6:30am on Monday, June 3, Lynn and I will be walking with you at H. W. Cox Park located at 440 W. Powell Road in Collierville. It’s a short walk that gives witness to the importance of caring for our minds, bodies and spirits through physical activity. It is not a race! Walk at a pace that’s comfortable for you.
The benefits of exercise for those who are able, is a blessing. The Department of Health and Human Services, as well as our own physicians, frequently remind us that physical activity reduces the incidence of colon and other cancers, helps reduce the risk of high blood pressure, anxiety, depression, helps with weight control and helps to build and maintain strong muscles and bones. Did you know that just 150 minutes of exercise weekly has tremendous health benefits?
There is a $10 fee that covers the cost of your tee shirt and snacks. All left over monies will be used for area food pantries. Please register on line at www.memphis-umc.org/witnesswalk
See you there!
