Members of Maranatha Christian Reformed Church drove around Cambridge in an amazing race style car rally last month in an event designed to help people make new friends and connections during the pandemic.
The 18 cars who participated would drive to eight stops, which were hosted at the house of another member of the church. Upon arrival, each team was given a task to complete and record for the final scoring. The event started around 8:45 a.m. and the last team was scheduled to finish around 10:10 a.m.
Rather than speed and problem-solving skills, the organizers of the event, Pastor Rick and the rest of the Fellowship Council, had in mind the connections made along the way.
It was an opportunity for members of the congregation to get out of the house and find some happiness amidst COVID-19. While this idea was considered the grand prize, the top three teams would each receive a windshield scraper, the first place team getting the one of highest quality.
