Annual 5k Run/Walk - September 29

This Fall: Change is coming to the Annual Ivyland 5K Run/1 Mile Walk The Ivyland 5K Run/1 Mile Walk has become an annual tradition for the Ivyland New Church society. In late September community members and friends gather to this event to enjoy fellowship and raise funds to keep Ivyland the self-sustaining church society that it is. In the past this event has taken place in Ivyland, in Borough Park in Bryn Athyn, on the trail by the Bryn Athyn post office, and this year we are again trying something new: This year's Annual 5K run/1 Mile walk will take place in the Academy fields adjacent to Cairnwood Village in Bryn Athyn. Our hope is that this location will offer an interesting and beautiful course, will encounter less non-event foot traffic than previous locations, and will draw participants not only from the Ivyland and Bryn Athyn communities, but also from the greater running/walking community. In addition, it is not only the location that is changing, but also our approach to organizing the event. This year we have contracted help from the Bryn Mawr Running Company. They will provide us with assistance in organizing, advertising, facilitating, and professionally timing the event. Our hope is that this will help our event run more smoothly and attract more participation. However, just because we are getting outside help does not mean that we don't still need your help. In fact, with all these changes and the potential of having a greater number of participants we will actually need more help than before, so please stay tuned for volunteer opportunities! How You Can Help Out Now There are two ways we raise funds with this event: sponsorship and entry fees. The potential for raising funds with sponsorship far outweighs the funds raised by entry fees, and it all depends on individuals contacting potential sponsors. Family members, friends, and businesses are great potential sponsors. Please consider asking someone or some business you know to sponsor this event. A sponsorship form is attached in this link: https://docs.google.com/document/d/1Icn3Fws3ZxCz-yBDwYD52r93c3PkmMXZr-cI1l8_OQ8/edit?usp=sharing Hard copies of this form are available at the church. Hope to see you at the 2018 Annual Ivyland 5K run/1 Mile walk September 29th!

Shift of Heart - Week 7

It isn't always fun to be a better person, but God promises that if we change our ways, He'll change our heart.

Shift of Confidence- Week 6

We only gain real confidence in our abilities when those abilities are put to the test. Jacob was tested, and asked for a blessing. So should we.

Shift of Motivation - Week 5

After spending years with Uncle Laban, Jacob now sees that his education is paying off. Likewise, after we spend time learning how to be a good person, we have to shift our efforts to actually BEING a good person.

Shift of Expectations - Week 4

Okay, so now you've got a goal and an expectation of reaching that goal. How do you deal with it when things don't work out the way you planned?

Shift of Focus - Week 3

What, or rather, who do you want to be? Try not think "doctor" or "lawyer" or "football player", try instead to think of how you want to feel. Do you want to be a more courageous person? Or a more compassionate person? Jacob illustrates how a shift of focus can make the goal a reality.

God uses others to connect to you! - Week 2

Feeling far away from God? Feeling like life has spun you around and left you confused? So did Jacob, and guess what God told him in a dream...
