Walking Group

Wednesday Walkers

The Wednesday Walkers are a longtime social group made up of Riverbend United’s congregation members promoting community and happy cardiovascular health!

As the song ”Come Walk With Me” suggests, those who walk together form a special fellowship. In addition to fresh air and exercise, we are able to talk out our troubles as we stride along.

Our walking group meets weekly on Wednesday mornings at 9:00 am. There is no sign up sheet and no excuses are required for missing walks. We walk a variety of routes from the church parking lot, through the surrounding neighborhoods and into the river valley. Those less able have a 9:30 start option. At 10:00, we meet for a bring-your-own coffee time.

During Covid days, everyone has brought a portable chair for an outside visit. When the church is open, we meet indoors.

 

On special occasions, our group travels farther afield. The U of A Botanic Gardens, Ellis Bird Farm and Wagner Natural Area are among our adventures.

Over the years, many friendships have evolved. We have celebrated the joys and supported the sorrows of our group members. A gift fund assists us in buying cards, flowers and fruit baskets.

Interested in joining us? Simply show up at the church parking lot on a Wednesday morning. If you would like more information about our group and its activities, please contact any of the following:
