Rafting Trip

2nd Annual EPIC trip down the Nantahala River !

Our EPIC Youth Group will be taking their 2nd Annual Rafting Trip down the Nantahala River on Friday, August 1st. The cost for rafting is $15 per person. You will also need to pack a picnic lunch and bring $10 for an evening meal at Fuddruckers in Asheville. The carpool from the church will pull out at 9:00 am and arrive back at the church around 7:00 pm. The money is due to Kathryn in the church office by noon Friday, July 25th. In order to get the group rate, there will be a church check written to the rafting company for the entire group. If you miss the deadline, your raft trip will not be included in with the group and you will have to pay an individual rate on site the day of the trip. If you have any questions, contact Linc McDaniel at 286-3579 or
