Event Details

Join us for the 2nd Annual Alleluia Fun Run/Walk Worship! 
2nd Sunday of Easter
April 16, 2023

We’re on the move again! This year, we will have an 8:30 a.m. worship service with Holy Communion.

In lieu of our regular second service, Bethel is partnering with St. Peter’s for another moving worship. This year, the 5k route will have us carry the joy of the resurrection through the neighborhoods between Bethel and Viking Terrace. We will formally begin at Bethel at 10 a.m. with scripture, song, and prayer. Walk or run, or cheer and enjoy music at the start and finish! Congregational Life is also looking for course marshals to direct the major turns. The service concludes at Bethel at 11 a.m. A fish taco fellowship (with lots of other options!) will follow.

Registration is free; the free-will offering will benefit the Viking Terrace funds that help keep this important affordable housing secure for our community. If you would like your donation to be reflect on your yearly giving statement, donate through your home church’s website and designate this as “Fun Run/Viking Terrace”, or bring a check (made out to your home congregation) with “Fun Run/Viking Terrace” in the notation. 

What if I don't want to run/walk? 
No problem, you can still participate in worship! You can choose to participate in the full worship by starting at Bethel and helping to decorate during the run, then join in for the conclusion at 11 a.m., or come to Bethel at 11 and stay for fish taco fellowship. The world is your oyster.

What if I get tired and need a hitch back to Bethel?
There will be a "sweeper" van playing caboose for the run/walk. Flag them down if you need to catch a ride back to Bethel. 

I'm not a fish fan, what can I eat? 
Chicken fritter tacos, gluten-free fish tacos and a vegetarian taco option will also be available!

What happens if it rains? 
In case of thunderstorms and lightning, a modified version of the worship will be indoors at Bethel beginning at 10 a.m.
