We want everything from board games to dancing, Art to hiking, sailing and surfing to knitting and sipping… Get creative and playful… and help us create a holistic community of intentional recreation.

Kick off a season of Thankfulness by participating in our build-n-play Uke-overy offering!
We have 20 build your own uke kits and this is a weekly time centered around building up each other and our own self-acceptance and awareness!
5 sessions (the 1st a build and decorate and meet-n-greet day) and concluding each is an optional time of beach play and/or sailing! Super stoked! This is for anyone… with themes of empowerment touching on depression, anxiety, addiction, trauma, etc… Click the Pic to Register!!!!!

In Louisville, Sweaty Sheep launched RunPossible, a program partnered with St. Vincent De Paul that provides mentorship and wellness opportunities to individuals facing homelessness and/or working towards sobriety and self-sustainability by pairing each with local community members such as YOU. Through running and walking, Yoga, Zumba, nutritional education, and personal relationships RunPossible initiates a self-transformation process through exercise and wellness that aids in the development of life changing friendships and self-confidence.
Every Tuesday we meet for a walk/jog at 6pm and on Fridays at 5:30pm we host Yoga with KY Yoga Initiative or Zumba with a skilled instructor. All located at 1029 S Preston Street in the SVDP Family Success Center.

We will be hosting a contemplative retreat at Mt. Hermon this fall along with Missio Dei and Bayshore Church that kicks off Friday with a kayaking and sailing dock party as a pre-retreat adventure.
The retreat will be help at Mt. Hermon and all the info is here.
Pricing is looking like this:
Kids 0-3: Free
Kids 4-17: $40
That includes accommodations and meals from dinner Friday to breakfast Sunday, plus programming. That’s slightly more than I mentioned last week. It’s still subsidized a bit for most. If that’s out of your price range feel free to use the prices I sent before. We don’t want cost to be a reason for anyone missing out on what should be a great weekend, so if it is a problem and you want to attend, please don’t hesitate to email us and we will make it work.
It’s that time of year again! Ironman is October 15th, and there’s a ton of ways to get involved! First of all – if you’re doing Ironman, let us know on Facebook or by sending us an email.
Come out this Thursday for a concert and bourbon cook-off! Jesse DeConto, writer for Christian Century and indie musician, will share his stories through song.
