Gentle Hike at Saginaw Forest Loop Trail
Saturday, November 7, 2:00 pm, rain or shine (lightning/storm date Sunday, Nov. 8) — Why not join some Knox folks for a fall walk through a lovely forested setting just minutes from church? Park in the far Southwest corner of the 242 Church Parking Lot (648 S Wagner Road, near Liberty). Meet at the pavilion at the trailhead to join a walking party. Those with children may want to take a slower pace; others may want to pick up the pace. Adults and older children please plan to wear a mask when walking with people outside of your household.

Testimonials from previous participants
“In a season where so many of our traditional summer activities were cancelled, it was such a treat to have a new activity to add to the, rather empty, calendar! The Srays’ Backyard Art Meetup has truly been one of our summer highlights. It was so neat to see the Sray teens’ spiritual giftings in art, science, and nature come into play and for our children to get time with one another. Given their age differences, that is something that wouldn’t happen so easily on an average Sunday morning, but with a bit of intentionality, it worked so well! And during this time that has been quite isolating for me, it was soul heartening for me to get a morning to converse with fellow sisters in Christ.” – Natalie Thompson
