Park Wilderness Summer

One of the ways to gather together with people from Park this summer is through our outdoor ministry, Park Wilderness. This ministry is led by volunteers and exists to plan and lead outdoor trips for our community. As summer approaches, I know many of us are excited to be outside and we believe there is so much value in disconnecting from busy life in order to connect with God and others in creation.

There are trips for all ability and experience levels, and we strive to serve on our trips. We have extra gear (tents, backpacks, etc) that we can provide, so don't let not having a few essentials hold you back from signing up. Overnight trips and Paddleboarding have a small cost associated with them and day hikes are free. If cost is an issue for any trips, please reach out as there are scholarships available that we’d love to give you.
