“As a little boy, my church would take youth and adults to Georgia’s coast to visit the places both John and Charles Wesley walked while they served the British Colony long ago. For me, this ignited a deep longing to learn more about what it truly meant to be a person called a Methodist. I can still remember walking under the live oaks where both Wesley brothers also walked. I truly believe my first trip to Epworth By the Sea was the beginning of a much longer journey of which I am still traveling today. 


I want to invite you to join me this fall! This trip will take place September 13-17, 2021,” Matthew Mitchell, Senior Minister at Church of the Servant.

TRIP SCHEDULE

Day One: Travel from OKC to the Shores of Georgia Our group will meet at the Oklahoma City Airport and begin our travels to coastal Georgia. A flight to Atlanta, then on to either Jacksonville or Savannah. Once on the coast, we will head to Epworth By the Sea, where we will stay for two nights. 


Day Two: Frederica Town, Christ Church, Saint Simons Village& Jekyll Island Day Two will begin with breakfast Epworth by the Sea & devotion in the Tabby House. Then we will board our charter bus for a busy and full day in coastal Georgia. 

 

Day Three: A Day of Forts and Salty Sea Air After breakfast and a devotion in the Tabby House, our group will travel north to Savannah, Georgia. General James G. Oglethorpe carefully selected Georgia’s colonial capital for its strategic location along the Savannah River and proximity to the Atlantic Ocean. Both John and Charles Wesley spent many days in this historic city, and our group will spend two nights here before returning home to OKC. But before we arrive in the classic city, we have a few stops along the way.


Day Four: River Cruise, Wesley Tour of Savannah by Trolly & Farewell Dinner Our day will begin with breakfast at the Planters Inn. After breakfast, two tours of Savannah await each of us! One by Trolley, the other by River Boat. Both tours will be special moments you will not want to miss. Seeing Savannah from the river and via trolley will be memorable and help everyone see as much as possible of this beautiful and historic city. The day will conclude with a group meal on our final night in Savannah. 

 

Day Five: Return to Oklahoma City After breakfast at the Planters Inn, our tour bus will take our group to the Savannah Airport, where we will embark upon our journey home to OKC.
