Newbreak Church...Sailing Life Group

What? A sailing Life group at Newbreak? How did I miss that you might ask?

Well as a matter of fact, this will be the third quarter this life group has been around. This life group is all about using sailing to bring others closer to Christ. It doesn't matter your skill level, this group will spend time each week in God's word, in prayer, all while learning the details of how to sail a boat. So much of Jesus ministry was based around boats and fisherman, so what better way to draw closer to God and do life together in community.

To date, nearly a dozen people have become Coast Guard certified to sail the Newbreak Sailboat..."Ruwach". This boat was donated to Newbreak for ministry and recently refurbished. It's a real beauty. It comfortably sails 8 people (plus crew) and the sailing Life Group regularly takes the boat out each month. Sailing trips are a great "plus one" event to bring your friends to. It's great missional space to talk about God and what he's doing through Newbreak Church while you are sailing!

Is sailing something you've always wanted to learn to do? Have you ever wanted to just spend a beautiful afternoon sailing in San Diego? Did you ever imagine how you could do this, bring friends, and talk story, all for free? Dreams really do come true!

The first of their regular meetings will begin after Easter on Wednesday, April 27.  If you are interested in this life group, or interested in scheduling a day of sailing, please email Mara Mattia at MaraMattiaArt@gmail.com or Mary Counter at dunamis1042@sbcglobal.net for more information.
