New Salem Baptist Church (NSBC) and the Active Faith Ministry  would like to welcome you to join our Spring Into Service 5k event in support of Rushton’s Hope! New Salem Baptist Church is located in Griffin and has many community service opportunities throughout the city of Griffin. Our Active Faith Ministry is honored to have the opportunity to bring the community together to share the Gospel of Jesus and to support the ongoing community support and engagement efforts of Rushton’s Hope. Rushton’s Hope is a Christian charitable organization in Griffin who works tirelessly to bring the Gospel of Jesus to our community and to meet the needs of our community on both physical and spiritual levels. Since 2007 Rushton’s Hope has been working the Lord’s mission to bring restoration to Griffin and beyond by bringing the message that there is hope in Jesus Christ for everyone who is hopeless, helpless, homeless, abused and refused, rejected, and neglected. They have multiple resources and programs available. You can check out the ministry opportunities and service times for  New Salem Baptist Church at www.nsbc.org. You can see all of the resources available and the opportunities to get involved with Rushton’s Hope at www.rushtonshope.org  We ask you to share this event as much as you can! Invite your family, friends, co-workers, neighbors, and church family! Let’s make a big impact in our community and support Rushton’s Hope!  Our goal is to raise as much money as possible for this event. All proceeds above and beyond race expenses will be given directly to Rushton’s Hope. Please use the donate button at registration to add any amount to your registration to further support Rushton’s Hope. 

More details:

This event will be a 5k distance (3.1 miles). As we are wanting every dollar possible to go directly to Rushton’s Hope this race will not be chip timed. We will have a gun start and will have a timing crew recording all finisher’s times and recording race results. We will have an age group award ceremony and winners will receive a medal. All registrants will receive a race T-shirt designed and printed by J-Max graphics (be sure to sign up by the shirt deadline to guarantee a shirt), race bib, course support, and post race breakfast. Breakfast Menu: Biscuits, Mrs. Stephanie’s delicious oatmeal, fresh fruit, juice, and coffee lovingly donated and prepared by New Salem Baptist Church! 

Having a fun and safe race is a priority. We will have support from Griffin PD and our New Salem Baptist Church volunteers. The course will be well marked and volunteers will be along the route to cheer you on and make sure you know where all the turns are located. There will be one water station about halfway through the course. We will warm up all the walkers/ runners with sharing the Gospel of Jesus Christ, prayer, opening remarks/ instructions, and praise music starting at 7:45 AM. Race starts at 8:00 AM sharp. Runners, walkers, and strollers are welcome! Any minor child running / walking the race on their own and not in a stroller should register for the event and be accompanied and monitored by an adult.
