Nature's Chapel is an ecumenical and interfaith ministry of University United Methodist Church.  We gather monthly (or so) for hikes in and around the Las Cruces area.  Everyone is invited to join us for these walkabouts and we try to vary our hikes so that easy hikes, as well as more challenging hikes are offered, so that differing levels of ability/experience can find something to enjoy.  We usually gather on a Saturday morning, carpool/caravan to our hike, and have brief devotions along the hike.  We also celebrate Holy Communion at a stop along the hike (everyone is invited to participate, but no one is required to participate).  We welcome anyone and everyone who likes to explore God's Creation and enjoys the great outdoors.

I started the group because there wasn't any other type of group like this. I've met some great folks in the group who have become close friends and have also met some amazing business owners.
