Peak Ministries at Parkside Church
“Nature to a saint is sacramental. If we are children of God, we have a tremendous treasure in Nature. In every wind that blows, in every night and day of the year, in every sign of the sky, in every blessing and in every withering of the earth, there is a real coming of God to us if we will simply use our starved imaginations to realize it.” – Oswald Chambers
Come, and let us go up to the mountain of the LORD,
To the house of the God of Jacob; He will teach us His ways, And we shall walk in His paths. Isaiah 2:3
Whether you are looking for a family outing, a physical challenge, or a chance to meet some very nice people; come hike, pedal, or paddle with us.
Get off the couch, into the sun, with the wind in your hair and bugs in your teeth … wait a minute … scratch that … Join us for some hiking, biking, camping, and whatever else beckons us outdoors. But be careful … you never know where the trail might lead you!
All trips leave from Parkside Church unless otherwise indicated. Always check the website for the latest trip details. The website is also the place to find out about spur of the moment outings.
