13 Groups to get you outside this Spring 

Outdoor Recreation Group | Manheim 

Do you love being outside and exploring all the beauty God has to offer in nature? This group exists to enjoy time together in the great outdoors. Activities include hiking, biking, kayaking/canoeing, camping etc. Here is your chance to connect with others from each LCBC campus each month to simply enjoy God’s creation. 

Hiking, Kayaking, and Biking Meet-Up | York 

Join other outdoor enthusiasts who share a passion for hiking, kayaking, and biking! Hit the trails, rivers, and more in the York area and connect with others over a shared hobby.
