Men’s Hike

St. Michael's 2020 Men's Hike

THE MEN’S HIKE HAS BEEN CANCELLED.

Depart Thursday, April 16 at 6:00am
Return: Sunday, April 19 at 5:00pm

On Thursday, April 16th, the St. Michael’s Church men will set out for Sumter National Forest along the Chattooga River to hike the Foothills Trail.  All men are invited to join the adventure and to renew old friendships and maybe, for the first time, make new authentic friendships that will last a lifetime.

“Friendship is born at that moment when one man says to another:
‘What! You too? I thought that no one but myself…” C.S. Lewis

Two Hike Teams:

  • Alpha Team (Base Camp Team): The Alpha Team will hike a short distance from the trailhead into a campsite and set up a base camp for the weekend.
    • Expect day hikes to and from the base camp carrying a day pack.
    • Praise, worship and spiritual teachings will happen around the campfire each night and spiritual teachings on the trail each day.
  • Omega Team (Trail Hike Team): The Omega team will hike approximately 5-7 miles each day with fully loaded backpacks setting up in a new campsite on Thursday and Friday nights.
    • Praise, worship and spiritual teachings will happen around the campfire each night and spiritual teachings on the trail each day.
    • On Saturday afternoon the Omega Team will join the Alpha Team at the Alpha campsite for a combined time of praise worship and teaching.
