Event description

Description

Join us for a fun-filled Memorial Day weekend on Bethel Island as we chill, BBQ, play basketball, jetski, wakeboard, and generally enjoy each other's company. We will worship on Sunday morning and have a conversation or two together as well.

What should I bring?

Towels, toiletries, sleeping bags (their are limited linens for the beds), games, journal (if you like that kind of thing), Bible, swimsuit, fishing license*, chair(s), water bottles, sunscreen, money for boat/jetski rentals, etc.

How far away is it and do I get there?

The Google machine says it's about 1 hour away by car (MAP HERE). I'd budget a couple full days if you're traveling on foot. Approximately 14 hours by mule train.

If you want to carpool because you need a ride, or you have space to offer a ride to others, please fill out this spreadsheet.

What are the accommodations like?

There are two types of housing we have reserved:

1) A giant house with a small handful of rooms, several other beds, sofas, and air mattresses. Total, the house can accommodate between 25-30 people.

2) Just down the street from the house is New Life Marina, where we have reserved 2 cabins with 6 beds each (bunk style).

If you have special requests/considerations about sleeping arrangements, please contact Kyle.

What does it cost?

Because we never want money to come between us and building community, the weekend is technically free. However, to continue practicing generosity and mutual ownership of these weekends, we ask that you donate what you would normally spend on food for the weekend (Friday- dinner; Saturday- 3 meals; Sunday- 3 meals; Monday-breakfast).

For example, would you normally make rice for yourself every meal of every day? Just donate $10...and make a doctor's appointment immediately ;) Would you go out to an expensive dinner twice and brunch once? Maybe you're talking a couple hundred bucks. This helps us share the cost of these moments as a community according to our needs and our means.

Can I invite friends?

Absolutely! There is almost nothing we do that is "exclusive" to those who already call our church home. This could be a great opportunity for friends and neighbors who are open to meeting new people to get connected to us in a really fun way.
