Kayaking Day On April 23 in the morning, Pastor is planning an excursion on the Little Miami River. We will meet off a predetermined spot on the Little Miami River near Caesar’s Creek Lake.

Also if you desire to eat something, bring your own lunch or snacks. We will meet at 8 am. Youth are welcome.
