Here are photographs of the raft float trip taken by adult members of First Church and their friends on the afternoon of July 10, 2016. The trip was led by Derek Young, our Coordinator of Adult and Youth Ministries. Derek is also president of Outdoor Adventure Experiences Inc. (http://www.outdooradventureexperiences.com/), which has been providing adventure programs and trips in the Shenandoah Valley for over 25 years. In addition to the children, youth, and adults of First Church, Derek has worked with public recreation departments, scouting programs, special needs groups, private and public schools, and individuals. Derek’s philosophy is that the best way to protect and care for our natural resources is by inspiring individuals during an adventurous recreational experience. Derek was assisted on this trip by Aaron Garber (a former member of our youth group) and Emily (a Bridgewater College student). Thank you Derek, Aaron, and Emily for a great summer afternoon!
