10,000 Reasons

We are all familiar with the song, “10,000 Reasons” and a line in verse 2 goes like this…”10,000 Reasons for my heart to find…” I think this line could have a deeper meaning to each of us…

The American Heart Association recommends we take 10,000 steps each day to get and keep our hearts in shape. Why not begin by setting aside one day and build from there? We kicked it off tonight and next Tuesday, June 27 we will begin meeting weekly at Dick and Willies’s trail at 7 pm to encourage one another as we begin this journey together. We will also have a time of devotion and prayer and who knows we may even break into an evening of worship… 

Invite a friend and be a part of this “10,000 Reasons” group.

-Dan
