Because it is safer and more comfortable to meet outdoors, we've been brainstorming ways that we can plan some of our usual happenings in new, open-air settings. Hiking is always a big draw, and we've been on a few local hikes in recent weeks. We're also hoping to explore some of the beautiful SC State Parks that are within an hour's drive from campus. Waterfalls and sunsets galore!
We're also hoping that we can put some social and service activities on the calendar, too. We're easing into the semester, but we hope to be able to have an outdoor art night (painting and/or sidewalk chalk). And we're in touch with some members of the congregation who might appreciate some timely yardwork or power washing.
It is so good to be together! And it's not a bad thing to be encouraged to appreciate God's creation a little along the way, too!
