About This Activity

Race course runs on the back roads in Powell Butte. Aid stations are available on both courses. The 5K Course is out and back and kid friendly. The 10K Course is a loop.

This year we will be holding our 69th Annual Lord’s Acre Day on Saturday November 1st. Much preparation has been going on all year long. There will be activities like the sale of pieces of pie and coffee; the “Country Store” which includes crafts, baked goods, aprons, novelties, fresh-frozen meats and our famous whole hog breakfast sausage; music concerts; the barbecue dinner consisting of beef, lamb, ham, baked potato, beans, barbecue sauce, bread, onions and pickles; and the afternoon auction of quilts, afghans, large crafts and possibly hay and firewood.

Lord’s Acre began as a way to finance the building of the original brick structure (Historic Chapel). The church congregation was encouraged to donate the harvest from one acre of farm ground. From the very beginning, at least 10 percent of the proceeds were allocated to missions work.

Over the years, the farming communities of Central Oregon have changed, but the concept of Lord’s Acre has not. Today, the proceeds are utilized for missions work, Christian Bible college scholarships and improvements to the church facilities, while the day-to-day operations of the church are paid through the general fund tithes and offerings.
