2017 Cross Walk

On Sunday, April 9, 2017, St. Peter’s Lutheran Church CROSS group will once again sponsor our annual CROSS WALK. Each participant will be completing the Cross walk from St. Peter’s Lutheran Church to Billy Dreher Island State Park to commemorate our Lord, Jesus Christ’s journey through the streets of Jerusalem bearing his cross for the forgiveness of all our sins. Please join us for our 11th annual walk…it is sure to be something you will remember and enjoy!

We are excited to announce that we are making some changes to this year’s walk and hope you too will get excited and join us as we walk a new route this year. We will begin our journey at St. Peter Lutheran Church, 900 Dreher Island Road, and walk to Dreher Island State Park along Dreher Island Road and then onto State Park Road through parts of Newberry and Lexington counties at 9:30 AM following our 8:00 AM contemporary worship service. Each participant in the walk will have the opportunity to bear the Cross as we make our way out to the Islands at Lake Murray. We plan to complete the 5.4 mile walk at 12:00 PM with a celebration at the picnic shelter #13 &14. Please plan to stay after the walk is complete and enjoy a lunch, fun and fellowship as we plan to have many activities for everyone to enjoy. Come and enjoy some lake time, beach volleyball, corn hole, basketball and many other exciting activities for all ages. Please consider bringing a tailgating style tent and a folding chair that morning so you can have a place to relax and enjoy the food and activities. We will have several of our church members ready to assist you in setting up your tent and helping you get tables and chairs set up for our lunch.

The CROSS group would like to extend an invitation to the families of St. Peter and to the entire Chapin/Little Mountain communities to come and join us for what will be a very memorable occasion.

CROSS (Children Reaching out Sharing Smiles) is a family oriented Christian outreach program that is an extension of the Social Ministry of St. Peter’s Lutheran Church

Last year’s CROSS WALK was a huge success and one of our best walks so far as we celebrated our 10th anniversary of the CROSSWALK. We are looking forward to this year’s event so we can once again carry the cross of our Lord and have fellowship with other Christians in the area. We are hoping to have even more people join us for the 2017 walk! We are anticipating having more than 200 walkers this year and hope that everyone who walked in past years will once again make plans to join us again this year on Palm Sunday, April 9th.

We would also like to invite and encourage many others in and around the Chapin community to make plans to join your Christian friends in a very meaningful event. We also welcome entire churches to join us and make it a joint effort and create friendships and fellowship among all Christians in our community. Please contact David Santiago (345-7710) or St. Peter’s Lutheran Church office (945-7643) is you need further information.

For more information concerning the CROSS group or ways that you can become involved or assist us in our Christian outreach please call the church office at St. Peter Lutheran Church. We have a lot of wonderful things going on at St. Peter and we encourage you to COME and SEE and get involved in our ministry!
