Sports/Active Ministries

Recreation is an important aspect of a healthy Christian life, and our church offers many opportunities for people to connect in an atmosphere of sport and fun throughout the year.  We are blessed with a facility that will support recreational activities.

If You Build It, They Will Run 5K & 1 Mile Fun Run

Special Saturday in August

The annual 5K and 1 Mile Fun Run is held on the quiet back roads behind our church. The course follows scenic rolling hills alongside Swamp Creek Park and the Gilbertsville Golf Club. This event is perfect for first time participants and a favorite for those who have enjoyed the run since our initial race in 2001. Click here for more information and to register for our next race.
