Church World Service CROP Walk
Sunday, October 1, 2017 1:30 pm - 4:00 pm
Walkers from 20 area churches/organizations will gather at Mansfield’s Central Park on Sunday, October 1st, for this year’s Church World Service CROP Walk with registration beginning at 1:30 PM. Their goal is to raise $15,000 to help stop hunger. Rev. Greg Bibler, pastor of First Christian Church, will lead the gathering time and Pastor Bob Stull of the Trinity United Methodist Church will offer the sendoff prayer.
Sponsored by the Mansfield Inter-Church Council, the group will step off at 2:00 p.m. from the gazebo going west on Park Avenue to South Park, south on Brinkerhoff to Maple, east to Marion and back to Park Avenue, ending at the Richland Carrousel Park. Snacks and free rides on the carrousel will be provided.
Twenty-five percent of monies raised will be returned to the local community benefiting pantries at Grace Episcopal Church and Mosaic at Park Ave. Baptist Church. Also benefiting are First Christian Church (monthly community breakfasts), St. Luke’s Point of Grace (Saturday evening meals) and North End Community Improvement Collaborative (NECIC) for community gardens. The remaining money will be channeled through Church World Service, a cooperative ministry of 36 Protestant, Orthodox and Anglican denominations providing self-help and development, disaster relief and refugee assistance in more than 80 countries.
