Walk Kansas is a health initiative of K-State Research and Extension that runs from March 18 through May 12 this year. Walk Kansas is a team-based program, with groups of six forming a team. Teams can be family, coworkers, friends, community organization members, neighbors, or part of a faith-based community. Team members do not have to live in the same town, county, state or country. Cost for each team member is $10.00 and optional t-shirts are available for an additional $10.00.

Join this program and…

  • be more active with friends and family,

  • make better nutrition choices,

  • and walk away your stress.

If you would like to participate in Walk Kansas as a Prairie Faith team member, contact Nancy by March 10!

If you or a family member are hospitalized, don’t forget to call the pastor to notify him! (Hospitals don’t notify pastors of admissions.) A hospital visit from the pastor can bring to your bedside healing prayers, comfort for an anxious heart, communion & assurance of God’s forgiveness.




Lord Christ, you came into the world as one of us, and suffered as we do. As we go through the trials of life, help us to realize that you are with us at all times and in all things; that we have no secrets from you; and that your loving grace enfolds us for eternity. In the  security of your embrace we pray. Amen. (Source: ELW)
