Paddle Skedaddle

Spend the morning on the water racing (or moseying) this 1.5 mile course with your family or as an individual!  There will be awards, lots of fair games & concessions on the grounds! 

This family-friendly event will take place at 5 Rivers (off the Causeway) on the June 3rd.  Boats launch from the launch site in front of Delta Safaris and line up at the docks at 5 Rivers.  Spectators will cheer the boat teams as they start from the docks and race around a small island at the end of the cut-through that connects Sardine Pass with Justin’s Bay. 

While contestants are on the water, there are lots of fun activities for adults and children.  There will be food and fair games galore.  After the race, there will be awards given in a number of categories including, “parent/child teams”, “most creatively dressed team”, “loudest cheering section”, the coveted “Pews & Canoes Award” for the church with the most supporters there, etc.  

Funds raised go to the USA Wesley Foundation Building Fund. If the weather is unpredictable and you want to know about cancellation click here!

QuadW Interns are coming!

We are so excited to have nine QuadW Missional Interns here in the Mobile District this summer! They will be leading a summer camp for elementary and middle school aged children.  Their focus will be to become mentors to these children as they teach about God, school curriculum, and life skills.
We need your help to make this the best experience for the interns. These nine young adults will live in an intentional community without all the comforts of home. Please help us stock their pantry for the summer!  Below are some suggested items but feel free to contribute any item that would help them survive the summer!   :-)
Please contact the District Office or Katy Wrona at (724) 889-6754 to drop off donations or if you have any questions. Thank you!!!
