On Sunday, October 15, 2017, 52 walkers from five local churches (Cedar Springs United Methodist Church, Courtland Oakfield United Methodist Church, East Nelson United Methodist Church, North Kent Bible Church of God, and Rockford United Methodist Church) gathered at RUMC and walked north on the White Pine Trail to the lookout just south of 12 Mile Road and back (3.1 miles). The Crop Walk benefits Church World Services, with 25% of the funds raised each year returned to benefit North Kent Connect and the Cedar Springs Community Food Pantry. Over $5,000 was raised by the five churches to help relieve hunger and poverty in the world. It was a bleak day for the Crop Walk, but not one drop fell on the walkers (and refreshments were provided back at the church). RUMC raised $2,503.36 and we had 33 walkers! Thank you everyone who walked or sponsored a walker! It was fun!
