What we’re about
GO! (Gethsemane Outdoors) hiking and outdoors group heads into the beautiful Southern California land and seascapes once a month to re-energize our spirits, re-engage with others and restore that balance that traffic, stress and cubicles have stripped away. Hiking, kayaking, sledding and more are all practically (if not literally) at our doorstep, so we should get out there!
Originally started as the outdoors group at our church (Gethsemane Lutheran in Mar Vista) with members and close friends, we welcome anyone interested in a morning in the sun (or marine layer ... cancelled for out-and-out rain). We meet the second Saturday of each month at 10:00 am either at the outdoors destination or at a central parking location (we will probably leave from Gethsemane - easy parking, gated and secure while we're away) from which we can carpool to the destination.
Anyone interested in getting outdoors is welcome to join. Of course, hiking and other outdoor events do have a certain level of risk and that risk is assumed by each of the participants in the event. Please always wear take reasonable precautions to prevent injury or negative impact from outdoor activities by wearing proper hiking boots, sunblock, bringing water and snacks to keep up energy.
Hope you can join us outside! God bless!
