ALL 7th- 12th
We are excited to let our youth and their parents know that we are going on a Float Trip on July 8th-10th near Lebanon, Missouri. All who plan to go on this Float Trip will need to register online through our church website. There will be two forms (one for adults and one for youth), so please be sure to select the correct one. We are asking for $30 from youth and adults to go towards the canoe rentals. This can be paid online, brought by the office, or dropped in the offering drop box by the church office. If you use the drop box, just place money/check in an envelope and write Float Trip on the envelope. Sign up by Tuesday, July 6th. Adult sponsors can sign up here.
Our plan is to depart from the Max on Thursday, July 8th (departure time TBD, but around noon) and drive to Lebanon, Missouri. We will spend the night at Hillcrest Baptist Church and then float on the Niangua River on Friday. After we are done canoeing, we will set up a campfire, roast some hot dogs, and then make our way back to Hillcrest Baptist Church for showers and some rest. We will head home on Saturday and plan to be back in Maryville by 2:30 pm. Also, note that we will have a series of Bible studies during our trip.
All youth and adults will be required to wear life jackets while in canoes and in the river. Wear comfortable clothes (please no swimsuits though) that can get wet and appropriate river footwear (crocs, water shoes, or old shoes) avoiding flip flops or slides as these are prone to fall off and float down the river. As we will likely be on the river for 4-6 hours and do not want people to be miserable on the trip back with a painful sunburn, wear sunscreen! We will additionally have some insect repellant, but feel free to bring your own.
