Welcome!

If you're here, chances are that you want more information about the city-wide Prayer Walk in Anoka coming up in a few weeks. You're in the right place, so read on, and be sure to let us know that you're coming, or if you have any questions.

For area pastors, ministry leaders, and group organizers, we've got a printable poster and bulletin insert to help us get the word out to the Christian community.

The Event

On Sunday, October 27, residents in Anoka and the surrounding area will walk and pray to Prepare the Way of the Lord to enter Anoka. The Prayer Walk will begin at seven City gateways and proceed to City Hall where a Union Meeting will be held in the lower-level Community Room including refreshments, socializing, walk reports and singing.

The Walk

Starting at seven City gateways, the walks will follow sidewalks or trails along major roads leading into downtown Anoka and come together at City HallRoutes range in length from 0.7 to 3 miles. People may walk, ride or drive each route. Some routes include a longer drive segment and a shorter walk segment. Once you choose your route, be sure to let us know which route you and your group will be joining!

The Gateways

  1. North:              Anoka County Library
  2. Northeast:   SW Corner of Bunker/Round Lake Blvds
  3. East:                 US Bank on East Main Street
  4. Southeast:   ABC Newspapers Office on Coon Rapids Blvd

  6. West:                Anoka Technical College on US Hwy 10

The Strategy

Transportation to/from gateway locations and City Hall should be arranged by each participating group by bus, van or carpool. If you need help finding a ride, be sure to let us know you're coming, and that you need transportation, and we'll do what we can to connect you with another group that could give you a lift.

Will you join with us in this endeavor? Start by choosing a route, then let us know that you and your group are joining with us!
