This group is intended to be an expansion of a hiking/outdoors ministry that originally started at NewSong Church in Irvine, CA in 2001. This is an expansion from our yahoogroups and facebook group page. Just search under either for "NewSong Hiking/Outdoors". However, this group has expanded beyond this church and we have members and participants from different places.
The purpose of the group is to gather people who love God and who love the beautiful outdoors for hiking and other outdoors activities. It is also for people who do not have a relationship with Christ, but want to investigate and who also love the outdoors. However, they do not want to commit to attend a specific church. What better place, than a "church without walls".
We have activities largely throughout Southern California and many times beyond. We've been blessed in Southern California with an environment and weather favorable for many outdoors activities. Activities we have participated in are day hikes, weekend camping trips, kayaking, horseback riding and much more.
Those who love the outdoors and want to meet others who love Christ and enjoy the outdoors.
As for the Meet Up Group, well this is fairly new. We are up for suggestions on activities. So, please share your suggestions on activities.
