Foley, AL — Summer at BeachnRiver Kayak Rentals officially begins when 22 members of a youth group from First Presbyterian Church of Pascagoula led by Pastor Matt Turner arrive ready to float the 10 a.m. kayak trip down the Bon Secour River in Foley, Alabama, Thursday, June 2, 2011.
The youth ages 14 to 18 are eager to experience an adventure on the river as part of the group’s “Sola5″ outing named after the Five Solas of the Reformation: Sola Scriptura; Sola Gratia; Sola Fide; Solus Christus; and Soli Deo Gloria.” According to Turner, “’Scripture Alone’ is our Highest Authority; Salvation is by ‘Grace Alone’ through ‘Faith Alone’ in ‘Christ Alone’ for the ‘Glory of God Alone.'” Sola is Latin for “Alone.”
The youth paddle for a couple of hours, return to the grounds to eat lunch, swim and kayak again before heading to the beach portion of their adventure in Gulf Shores later that afternoon.
All participants receive “Victory Pops” for their well mannered behavior while guests at BeachnRiver Kayak Rentals.
