Active Rest

This July is the month of Active Rest!! We are taking a break at church from our normal weekday activities for maintenance month. Instead its time to get together and have fun with others who share common interests. Rest your mind from your hectic routine and add some outdoor recreation to your life.

Find a group for what you already do OR try something new!  A group leader will contact you with more details for your summer fun activity. Some activities may have a cost associated with them and your group leader will share that with you once you RSVP.  Click the group link here to see the schedules.
