Bethlehem Walkers

“Honoring our bodies - through exercise”

Where are we now?

The Bethlehem walkers have logged another 409 miles ending last week. That exceeds our total of 399.82 miles needed to make it back to Bethlehem once again.

To join us on our virtual trips all you need to do is get a pedometer and walk, jog, run, or exercise in whatever method is comfortable for you. You then jot down either the amount of time spent exercising, steps, or miles logged and then either fill out a walk stat slip found in the basket in the narthex or send an email to Bill Evans at

Let's not be discouraged by the cold weather and windy days - record every mile in everything that you do, whether it be walking, jogging, treadmill, or jazzercise! They all count toward our ongoing mission of Good Health!

I’m looking for ideas on future walk destinations – please don’t hesitate to drop me an email with your ideas.


The Bethlehem Walkers was an idea of the Bethlehem Men’s Group in reference to a chapter “Honoring Our Bodies” in a book that was being studied during the month of May 2011. The first virtual walking journey was from Bethlehem on Oakley to Bethlehem in Israel. Than it continued around the world until Bethlehem on Oakley (home) was reached, some 25,304.45 miles later. The Bethlehem Walkers have kept the pace going, by continuing their virtual journeys to places like Bolivia, Germany, Ethiopia, and down old Route 66.

Participation is open to all.
