Regrettably, for the third consecutive year, there will be no physical gathering for the annual Seventh Day Baptist Conference Week activities. However, for the tenth consecutive year, there will be an SDB Missionary Society-sponsored 5K event, on Sunday, July 31, 2022, and your participation is greatly encouraged. This year the theme is, “Building Up The Temple,” with Ephesians 2:21 as the theme Scripture. Registration fee is $25 for adults and $10 for children under 12 years. As we build up our bodies in doing the 5K, all proceeds from this year’s 5K fundraiser will go towards helping to build worship facilities in Rwanda and Nicaragua.
You can register and order your T-shirt at https://runsignup.com/Race/WI/JanesvilleWI/GospelFeet5k, then do the 5K. If you are not physically able to do the distance, you can nominate someone to walk, jog, run, swim, or cycle for you. You can also give a special donation towards the overall fundraising goal.
This year we strongly urge churches to participate by forming teams. Get a team together and be each other’s support for the completion of the exercise. Take pictures and post to our Facebook page. A Zoom meeting will also be open so you may log on and report your team’s progress at any point.
Let us make this 10-year anniversary 5K the biggest and best one yet. We are aiming at a minimum of 150 participants and raising at least $8,000 in registration fees and donations. You can be a part of making history.
“In him the whole building is joined together and rises to become a holy temple in the Lord.” Ephesians 2:21
