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 Hall. Routes 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. See details on maps.
