Forward in Faith 5K - Virtual Race

To run the race of life, we train to grow stronger each day.  To strengthen and grow in faith, we participate in ministry and life together.  The 2021 Epiphany Lutheran Forward in Faith 5K gives us a chance to flex our physical muscles as we support our youth to provide opportunities for them to strengthen and grow their faith.  The Forward in Faith 5K will benefit the 2022 Youth Gathering Fund this year.  Due to the importance of safety and health, the FIF 5K will be a virtual event.  We hope this gives the opportunity for you to get out to move and enjoy God’s creation by picking a day full of sunshine and your favorite trail to enjoy to get out and move!
