Fall 2019 Events
Plan now to join the WCUMC Outdoor Ministry for the kayak / SUP / canoe outing only 6 miles from the church on Saturday, September 14, 2019, starting at 9:00 am. The location is the Harbour Owners Association boat launch/clubhouse. Directions can be found on Google Maps using 125 Bay Port Lane, Mooresville, NC 28117 as the destination. We'll paddle about 3 miles around protected coves of Lake Norman and then gather at the Harbour HOA clubhouse for lunch and fellowship.
If you would like to participate and don't have access to a kayak, SUP, canoe, we can arrange for some borrowed and some rental kayaks. There is a $38 rental fee for each rental kayak, but we'll do all of the transportation to and from the rental concession site. The borrowed kayaks will be assigned on a first come first served basis. If you have your own kayak, SUP, canoe, and need help getting them to the launch we can probably help you with that also.
If you plan to attend, please RSVP back to (Steve Doolittle) at email@example.com by Monday September 9th, 2019 along with your needs for a kayak, board, canoe. Since lunch will be graciously provided at the clubhouse, we'll need an accurate participant count to be able to order the correct amount of food.
For information and questions email Steve Doolittle at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Join the Outdoor Ministry for a hike at Elk Knob State Park in Todd, NC - close to Boone.
We'll meet at WCUMC at 8:30 am and carpool to Elk Knob State Park, about 1 hour and 50 minutes from the church. We'll plan to summit Elk Knob which is a 3.6 mile hike; 1.8 miles uphill to the summit and 1.8 miles downhill from the summit. The hike is rated moderate for the 961 ft elevation gain to the summit. On a clear day from the summit, one can see all of the tallest NC Mountains to the west and all the way to Pilot Mountain to the east. We should be back at WCUMC by 3:00pm. Leaders will have a cooler available to keep lunch foods chilled and we'll plan to enjoy lunch together somewhere close to the park.
The address for Elk Knob State Park is 5564 Meat Camp Road, Todd, NC 28684. For information and questions email Steve Doolittle at email@example.com.
Join the Outdoor Ministry for a hike at Rocky Face Park, Hiddenite, NC
We'll meet at WCUMC at 9:00am and form carpools to drive to Rocky Face Park in Hiddenite, NC about 50 minutes from the church. At the park we'll plan to hike about three miles to one of the rocky overlooks of the surrounding area. Rating is moderate as the trail ascends 600 feet, but designed with many, many switchbacks to keep the slope of the trail moderate. The trail provides great long distance views of the Brushy Mountains. Leaders will have a cooler available to keep your lunch foods chilled and we'll plan to enjoy lunch together at the picnic shelter in the park. We should be back at WCUMC by 2:30pm.
The park address is: 3451 Rocky Face Church Road, Hiddenite, NC 28626. For information and questions email Steve Doolittle at firstname.lastname@example.org.
