Pastor's Perspective

Would you like a way to visit with friends, make new friends, enjoy the outdoors, get exercise AND help change the world?  Come walk with us in the CROP Hunger Walk to raise funds to fight hunger in our community and around the world.  We’ll start and end at Faith United Methodist Church, Champaign.  Walkers should plan to arrive at 1:45 pm and the Walk starts at 2 pm.  The route is 6 miles.  If you want to walk fewer miles, there is a shortcut reducing distance to 3 miles. See Tori Corkery to get your Walker envelope or sponsor a Walker. 

The CROP Hunger Walk is the only event that brings together all members of our community—young and old, all faiths and walks of life for a common goal—to end hunger, one step at a time!

CROP Hunger Walks are making a big difference worldwide, including ensuring that more children reach their 5th birthday, teaching sustainable ways to grow food and providing additional sources of food and income to families facing extreme challenges. We hope that you will join us in helping to end hunger!

This year Champaign-Urbana and some 1,000 other communities nationwide are joining together in interfaith CROP Hunger Walks around the theme "Ending hunger one step at a time."  Show your solidarity with the millions of neighbors around the world who have to walk to live—as well as with the millions served by local food pantries, food banks and meal sites here in the U.S.  These local ministries share in the funds raised by CROP Hunger Walks.

Donations accepted anytime! Plus, walkers will be accepting donations at a table in the narthex before and after worship on Sundays: Sept 30, Oct 7, and Oct 14. The CROP Hunger Walk is truly about us all fighting hunger in many ways throughout the world!!  Come walk with us!
