St. John’s is literally walking – and hiking! – in love!
Thanks to the great survey response we have now set up four options for walking or hiking with fellow parishioners. You have options for place, date, time, and pace of walk, so take your pick and join your fellow members as we WALK IN LOVE.
Let’s Get Moving!
Are you interested in a brisk weekly walk? Then this walking group is for you! Join Pam Ali every Saturday at 9 am by the Visitor Center at Joyner Park beginning on April 10th for fellowship and fresh air. Other locations and/or times will be determined by the interest of participants. For more information, contact Pam Ali at cell # 919-397-2443, home # 984-235-1580 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
Walk After Work Wednesday!
Join us on Wednesdays to walk the rest of the way over hump day toward the weekend. This walk at your own comfortable pace group meets for fellowship, connection to other St. John’s members, and movement. Families are welcome. We will start at Joyner Park beginning April 7th at 6:00 pm for a walk through the looping trails that end up back at the parking lot so how far you walk will be up to you. Other locations will be determined by the interests of participants. Contact Michelle Ricci at 919-210-4655 or email@example.com for more information.
Wake Forest Explorers
This family-friendly walking group will meet monthly to enjoy trails and parks in and around Wake Forest. These social-paced walks are open to all ages and paces (including well-behaved pets on a leash) and are a great opportunity to invite friends and neighbors along who may be interested in getting to know the St. John’s community. Walks will be on trail terrain and usually about 1-2 miles in length, so we recommend using baby carriers/backpacks (rather than strollers) with your smallest explorers. We will aim to visit a new park/trail each month. We will gather the first Sunday of each month at 3:30 p.m. Due to Easter, we will gather on Sunday, April 11 at 3:30 p.m. at Forest Ridge Park (2100 Old North Carolina 98 Hwy, Wake Forest, NC 27587). Please park and meet us by the Visitor Center. If you have any questions, please contact Veronica LaFemina firstname.lastname@example.org or Tim Shail email@example.com.
Let’s Go Hiking
Join Helen Holt on some great hiking local trails, especially the Mountains to the Sea Trail, one of NC’s greatest resources for folks who love to be outdoors and hike: a good chunk of it passes right through our area. There’s also various state park hiking trails. In addition, we have Umstead, Annie Wilkerson Nature Preserve, Duke Forest, Eno River, lots of trails in Chapel Hill, and other places. Helen would love to hear suggestions from the group. In terms of “equipment,” not much is needed. The hike would be approx. a two-hour hike or so, averaging 5-6 miles, though with extra time, she doesn’t mind going an extra couple miles. Less than 3 miles seems like a waste of a good hiking day! Interested participants should contact Helen at firstname.lastname@example.org or 919 556-1958. The group will meet prior to our first walk on ZOOM to set up frequencies, distances, and dates.
