Move Out! - HSHC 4th Annual Miles for Ministry Fundraiser

Thursday, September 1 - Friday, September 30, 2022
Description

The theme of our 4th annual Miles for Ministry Fundraiser is Move Out! 

We are challenging HSHC’s individual and community supporters during the month of September 2022 to raise money by spending time outside collecting Creation Minutes.  Participants can collect Creation Minutes via a variety of activities, such as walking, gardening, talking with neighbors, temporarily moving a home office to the back porch, playing with children, reading a book, watching the sunset, or simply resting outside.

Not only does research suggest that spending at least 2 hours (120 minutes) per week in nature helps improve our overall wellbeing, but it is our hope that, through this intentional time spent outside, participants will experience God’s movement among them - “moving out” some of our old (and perhaps destructive) ways of being and replacing them with something new (life-giving). 

“I am about to do a new thing; now it springs forth; do you not perceive it?  I will make a way in the wilderness and rivers in the desert.” - Isaiah 43:19 NRSVUE
