Marti Estes 5K event background and history:
What is the significance of this event, you may ask? Marti Estes was a serving Deacon at First Presbyterian Church when she unexpectedly died while out running in 2005. More than anything Marti was an active member of First Presbyterian. She served the church in many ways. Marti was a Deacon, she taught Sunday school, served in the nursery as well as worked on many committees. She attended a women’s circle and helped prepare meals for people who were sick or who had lost loved ones. Marti was willing to serve the Lord in any way that she was asked to and always did so lovingly.
Shortly after Clay Brown became pastor of our church, he challenged the Diaconate to come up with a God-sized project that would benefit our greater community outside of our church membership. The Deacons decided that this event would be the perfect opportunity to honor Marti. To date, the Marti Estes 5K Community Walk of Faith has distributed funds to local charities totaling over $106,500 in just six years.
