Green Team Hike, Sunday, June 11 – Join us on June 11 for a fabulous hike through Lebanon Hills Regional Park!  We’ll meet right after church, coordinate our strategy, and carpool all the way over to the mystical land of Eagan to hit the trails.  All abilities are welcome, but please be sure to wear appropriate footwear, and bring your water receptacle and a sense of adventure!

CV Camping Trip, August 18-20 – You read that correct – we’re hard at work finding a Minnesota state park for the freshest Lutheran camping trip this side of 40 days spent in the wilderness, no locust eating required (but you can if you want).  Come with your tents, your RV’s, your camping gear you haven’t pulled out in 30 years, we’ve got your back and are ready to have a great time.  Stay tuned for the extremely rad particulars!
