RUN WITH A MISSION $5K
Watch this video from Pastor Mark Juliot
In 2020, due to Covid-19, we are not holding our annual in-person 5K event. However, the need is greater than ever. So, instead, we are holding a virtual fundraiser, the Run with a Mission $5K. The goal, rather than running/walking 5
kilometers, is to raise $5,000 to benefit our local and global mission
partners. 100% of your donation
will go toward Alleluia! Mission partners. CLICK HERE to go to our fundraising page.
