Athletics

Through our Athletics ministry, we provide venues to meet and play—with the ultimate goal of sharing and knowing Jesus in our real everyday lives.

At these sporting events, you can meet people with common interests, building friendships that often carry into the rest of life. Friends of SWBIBLE members are also welcome to join them and take part.

Annual 5K Run/Walk and 1 Mile Fun Run

Each summer, we kick off our Outdoor Sunday Evenings with a Competitive 5K race, 5K walk, and a family-friendly one-mile Fun Run.

There are prizes for various age groups for children, women, and men. After the run/walk, people are invited to stay for a free BBQ dinner.
