Students in Sunday School will start the year off by focusing on the scripture “What does the Lord require of you, but to do justice, love kindness and walk humbly with your God” (Micah 6:8). We will certainly be walking! Many Sunday School students already participate in the Especially For You Race Against Breast Cancer in downtown Cedar Rapids with their families, and this year, we hope to raise our attendance at the event!

Last year, Hope UCC Middle School students created a banner that read “Finish Strong” that was displayed along the race route for all participants to see. The details are still being worked out, but once again, the Middle Schoolers will be involved in inspiring race participants.

The Especially For You Race takes place on October 4, 2015. More information will be coming soon, on how Hope UCC kids will be involved with this important cancer awareness event in Cedar Rapids.
