About This Activity

The rainbow is a symbol of one of God's promises in His word. Because of Noah's faith, he and his family and the animals were saved from the Great Flood. God promised that the earth would never again be destroyed by such an event and the everlasting symbol of that promise is the rainbow. We believe that God will also honor the faith of our church and day care as we provide care, training and Christian education to our students. We view each student as a "PROMISE", full of  the potential to become a great success in life.

This Rainbow Promise Run is a fun way to support this ministry. It is a 5K, color powder run. At designated stations, colored powder will be tossed onto runners, marking their progress through the course while also creating our own rainbows to remind us of God's promises. Runners and walkers are invited to join us on this rural road course which includes a couple of medium hills. T- shirts and color packets will be given to the first 100 registrants. Wear old clothes that you don't mind turning rainbow colors and bring a towel or change of clothes for the ride home.

After the 5K, there will be a short dash for pre-schoolers so they can become little "rainbows" too!

"For all the promises of God in Him are 'Yes', and in Him, 'Amen', to the glory of God through us." 2 Corinthians 1:20
