This year, the American Cancer Society is sponsoring a virtual Relay for Life, and First Baptist is once again sponsoring a team and fundraising.
For 24 days beginning June 24, you can participate in the virtual Relay for Life at your own pace. Help raise money for our team, Prayers for the Journey, by joining the team and helping them reach their goal of $500.
Regardless of whether you join Team Prayers for the journey, you can still
participate in the virtual relay. It will run over 24 days, to represent the 24 hours of a relay event. You can walk at your favorite spot and keep track of your miles or steps and pledge a dollar amount, until July 18. Checks can be made payable to the church, with “Journey-Relay for Life” in the memo line.
Luminarias are also for sale. A luminaria display is planned at First Baptist on Saturday, July 18, and again on Sunday, July 19 during the worship service. Luminarias are to be decorated to remember, to honor, or in support of friends and loved ones that cancer has touched.
The cost is $8 each or two for $15. You can decorate them yourself, or we can decorate them for you.
To order luminarias, contact Kathy Allaband at 610-347-2086 or at firstname.lastname@example.org.
First Baptist Church has been involved with the American Cancer Society’s Relay for Life since 2014.
That was the year that Team Prayers for the Journey was formed to be a source of comfort to those in need at the annual Relay for Life events.
Participants could come to our tent, and our deacons would pray with them.
In recent years, Team Prayers for the Journey has hosted a mini-relay at First Baptist.
