What we're about

Psalm 19:1-4 The heavens declare the glory of God and the firmament shows His handiwork.

The purpose of this group is to meet and fellowship with other believers or those interested in Jesus Christ while celebrating Him in an active outdoor environment. (Matthew 18:20 - For where two or three are gathered together in my name, I am there in the midst of them.)

We are Christians that have accepted Jesus as our Lord and Savior, and walk with Him in our daily lives. We also love His extraordinary natural creation. One of the greatest forms of worship is spending time enjoying all He has done. It can be difficult to meet Christians outside of our respective churches; this is a way to expand your group of Christian friends that enjoy doing the things we outdoors enthusiasts love, all while glorifying God!

All are welcome to join regardless of their background and religious affiliation. We respect each other and our differences, but maintain that the core belief of this group is based on the acceptance of Jesus Christ alone. If you are not a Christian, that is OK, just keep in mind you will be surrounded by them, and we love one another and will love you! :) This will be an environment where we can freely share the love and knowledge of Christ without judgment. It is also a place where others can learn of Christ and accept Him as their Lord and Savior, if they wish. In addition to our outdoors activities we can discuss the bible (a favorite topic), our faith, ask questions, share testimonies, understand and get to know our different backgrounds and strengthen each other in our walk with Christ and in our lives. The primary purpose of this group is to bring to believers in Christ together through doing things we enjoy, so talking about Jesus will be very likely and even encouraged.

We would love to have an active group, so if you are interested in leading an event in a particular area, please contact us, and we might reach out to some of you for help. Allow God to use you to expand his kingdom with your talents! Please keep the group in prayer as that will be the key to our success and plans God has for us and His glory.
