Sunday, March 3, 2018, was First Mennonite Church of San Francisco’s third annual participation in a Bay Area event known as “Walk and Bike to Worship Week”. First Mennonite’s participation included scootering and riding mass transit as well as walking and biking. The program at First Mennonite Church was organized and facilitated this year by Kenda Horst and Karen Kreider Yoder. Participants were awarded stickers showing participation and awarded entry in a raffle to win prizes that included Ford GoBike annual membership; Walk SF T-shirt and membership; and a San Francisco Bicycle Coalition T-shirt and membership. Participants were invited to a picnic at the Conservatory of Flowers following worship. One of the goals of the walking, biking, and transiting to worship event was to SAVE THE PLANET. A show of hands during the worship service on Sunday showed that around three dozen congregants walked, biked, or transited to First Mennonite Church services on March 3rd. Thank you Kenda and Karen for organizing this event! – Jim Musselman, for FMCSF Green Team
