Young adults from a local church spent the day hiking and studying scriptures.

Dodsworth called the event Hike and Hermeneutics, with the purpose of the trip to give the young adults an opportunity to study God's word in community and surrounded by His creation.

"We talked about what hermeneutics is, as the study of how to interpret scripture, and then we got into Matthew 4:19, where Jesus says 'come, follow me, and I will make you fishers of people,'" the pastor shared.

"Being by the dam, being right near the water, we wanted to kind of stay on theme," explained Dodsworth.

Kara Fulawka was one of the individuals who took part in Wednesday's hiking and bible study activities.

Despite the 18 kilometer journey, Fulawka says the day was pleasant, with rain to cool them down from the week's high temperatures.

"We had awesome weather... I feel like God was really on our side," she chuckled.

The day, overall, consisted of much walking, gratefulness for a variance in weather, and community growth in scriptures.

Dodsworth invites any young adults interested to join Eastview for their next Hike and Hermeneutics event, where they'll be heading out to hike in Spruce Woods Provincial Park. The date for their next event hasn't been determined.
