This trip is now open to the entire church, and we need a few more registrations to fill up the second bus. We encourage parents with high school students, college students, millennials, and adults of all ages to consider attending (No small children please).  If you are interested, contact the church office for registration forms or call Christian Tours at 800-476-3900.  Click the “Sept.
