2019 Walk Pictures


Update March 23, 2020

So with all the things going on in our world lately,  I've really been wondering what to do about this year's event.  I was feeling a month ago like we weren't suppose to do it.  Then a friend was honest with me and said Jerry,  God will never tell you to stop doing something that teaches out to people.

I was joking with my buddy Charlie Adams and all of a sudden I realized it wasn't a joke but something very practical.

How many people would join me in their cars as we Carry Our Communities cross in a convoy from Knox to North Judson?

Each Car can make a poster to show a solution that is working against the issues in our community.

Examples; Celebrate Recovery,  Bella Vita,  Community Services, etc.....

Please give me some feedback and be totally honest.

Carrying our Communities Cross - Annual Event

For this event to be sucessful we need the following each year

This is an annual event "Carrying our Communities Cross" held the Saturday before Easter. We carry a full sized wooden cross 13.7 miles from the Starke County Courthouse in Knox to Norwayne Field in North Judson to BEAR the trials and tribulations plaguing our community.

Above all we want all residents in the area to know they are LOVED by us and God.

Cross Bearers

Volunteers to carry the cross for short periods during the 13.7 mile trip, the more people we have the shorter each person has to Bear the cross.

Seniors / Disabled

You are not left out, we have trailers with hay bales that you can ride along and still participate.


There are costs for printing fliers, signs and we try to donate to those businesses that help people in the community like Bella Vita for example.


People to walk along with us, carry a sign, help pray for those afflicted by trials and tribulations.
