What is Stride 1.4? I’m glad you asked!
|Why 1.4? The most recent statistics tell us that 1 in 4 women will have an abortion by the age of 45. We will come together to mourn the 1 that will not experience life outside of the womb; to grieve with the mother who didn’t choose life and to pray for healing over her and anyone else involved; and to celebrate and pray over the 3 lives that were chosen and the families that are raising them.|
How will we do that?
Instead of our traditional walk, we are coordinating a 1.4 mile drive. We will host a brief program to kick us off in the parking lot of Crossroads Baptist Church (31 Cross Road Ln, Fishersville) and then drive 1.4 miles to Bridge Christian Church (1275 Goose Creek Rd, Fishersville) together as we join in prayer and reflection over the 1 in 4.
|You may be thinking 1.4 miles is a short drive. While you are correct and we would love to walk it instead, we felt this was the most responsible way to give us an opportunity to gather at this time. In addition, we are hoping to inspire you with patient stories and encourage you in the details that we’ll be sharing as we get closer.|
|If you are unable to participate that day, please join us virtually! Take a 1.4 mile walk in your neighborhood or a 1.4 mile drive wherever you feel close to God. Take a picture of your 1.4 mile walk/drive and post on social media and tag #SupportCCWH.However you choose to participate, let’s do this together!|
