Alex & Alexis’s Group

We are a married couple (10 years this year) in our early 30’s with 4 daughters: Olivia-7, Charlotte-5, Amelia-2, and Hazel- 1.5 months. We live in Burlington. Alex has an IT role at Labcorp and travels often. Alexis is a stay at home Mom. As if life wasn’t crazy enough, we also have 4 dogs and 4 cats. We are typically home bodies. We love hanging out at home with the kiddos playing outside, watching movies, or spending time with our parents. Obviously, the majority of our events will be family focused because we feel it is so important for our kids to see us enjoying healthy Christian friendships. We also see this as an amazing opportunity for our kids to build lifelong Christian friendships. We want our group to love on each other, encourage one another and build each other up. Iron sharpens iron. We have some ideas for really fun group events, but we also want to involve everyone in planning. The events will vary in location, but we plan to do most events on the weekend, between Friday afternoon and Sunday evening. We look forward to meeting all of you and your families!

Tyler & Dominique’s Group

We are a 31 year old couple with a 4 year old daughter. We are so excited to make friends, build and strengthen relationships through Christ! We will meet once a month and choose family friendly activities every month. Occasionally, we may have a bible study or men/women only event. Some ideas of activities we will plan: cooking/pot lucks, game nights, parks/picnics, eating out, summer fun activities, celebrating all holidays, seasonal events, bowling, putt putt & more! We are so blessed to have you join us to better the kingdom!

Trailhead Mountain Bikers Group

My name is Jesse Hayes, and I enjoy mountain biking regularly. I started biking about three years ago and have been increasing the amount of riding ever since. I hope to schedule a ride at least once a month at various trails in the area and depending on interest an occasional road trip to trails further away.

Basketball Group

We offer a recreational adult coed basketball group, open to all skill levels! We typically play once a month, on a Sunday afternoon. If you love to play a friendly game of basketball, with little bit of healthy competition, come out and be a part of the team! “For I can do everything through Christ, who gives me strength.” (NLT, Philippians 4:13)

Disc Golf Group

I’ve been playing disc golf for 35+ years and still play tournaments in the grand master pro division. But I mostly just play for fun with my buds and my dog Buster. I love to encourage and mentor new players as they learn the dynamics and rules of the game. We would be playing at Cedarock park mostly, as there are two 18 hole courses there. Players need to be able to walk about 1.5 miles on hilly to rough terrain, and have plenty of hydration. I can provide loaner golf discs for beginners, and by the way… it’s free! I would not recommend kids under the age of 14. Its hard to have an exact age cut off, but they need to be fairly coordinated, respectful of other players, and stay behind the direction of play, as golf drivers are sharp edged and can cause injury. Also, disc golf is weather contingent, so rain or high winds will cause rescheduling. Be strong, pray long, and throw long!

Fellowship Riders

Our current members are ages 20 to 65 who share a love of motorcycles in a Christian environment. We hold weekly fellowship rides, charity rides, weekend trips and outreaches for Christ around the hub of motorcycling. If you are a licensed rider and have access to a motorcycle this a great group for you! Each affiliate group of fellowship riders is hosted by a local church. The national group holds a strict Christian code of conduct and have national SOPs, guidelines and rules that govern each affiliate group nationwide. Our groups involves themselves with local and personal evangelism, angel tree ministry, prison ministry, and expanding global evangelistic outreach to name a few. As fellowshipriders.org explodes world-wide with riders coming to Jesus worldwide. Our national mottos are “Powered by Christ” and “Start a rumble in your church”. Nationally 98% of all motorcycle riders are unchurched. Here is our ministry field white to harvest.

Dustin & Elizabeth’s Group

We are small family of 4 in our late 20’s! One 3 year old girl and a 5 month old boy, oh and 2 pups and 5 baby chickens! We love the outdoors and camping/hiking. We love crafting, eating, and enjoying friends and family. We will be doing outdoor activities at local parks, local events that are going on, as well as dinners and game nights.

Brian & Nicole’s Group

“We are farmers, bum ba dum bum bum bum bum!” Brian and I (Nicole) are thrilled to be leading a group this year with our trailhead family! We have been blessed by this church since 2012 and have enjoyed raising our family here. We are in our early 30’s and have two boys ages 4 and 2. Any young families in their mid 20’s to late 30’s would fit right in with our crazy clan. We hope to typically plan family friendly events on Fridays, Saturdays, and maybe some Sundays after church depending on the availability of the group. Most events will probably be kid-friendly, but we plan to throw in some kid-free events too for everyone’s enjoyment (and sanity haha). Some monthly get-togethers would include (but not be limited to) cookouts/bonfires, hiking/picnics at local parks, bowling, science centers or children’s museums, zoo trip, ladies/men’s nights, game nights, local baseball game, splash park, camping, partnering with another Trailguide group for outings…and of course any ideas the group comes up with that may peak an interest. Brian is in local law enforcement and is in the national guard and Nicole works at a medical facility in durham so needless to say, we are used to working around crazy schedules to accommodate everyone. We live in Gibsonville, but the events would vary between Gibsonville, Burlington, Graham and other local areas depending on the event for the month. We can’t wait to meet you all!”

Josh & Karen’s Group

We are a married couple in our mid 30’s with an 8 yr old daughter, Echoe, and a small puppy, Koda! We love to spend time as a family and enjoy outings and get togethers that are family friendly! Josh is a huge foodie and enjoys cooking and eating, so our group will definitely spend time filling up on delicious meals! Our family also enjoys being outside and partaking in leisure activities (walking, low-moderate hikes, golf, swimming, biking, etc.). We welcome anyone from all ages and walks of life that share in these same interests to join us on this journey!

Tim & Olivia’s Group

Tim and I have been married 6 years and have 2 little girls, our 5 year old daughter Carigan and our infant daughter Delaney. Our Trailguide group is a family oriented group. We like to plan the majority of our events as kid friendly activities that can involve the whole family. The age range for the group is generally in the mid 20’s to late 30’s, with children ranging from infant to school age. We enjoy a variety of activities, such as outdoor hikes, picnics, volunteering, cooks outs and game nights. We typically meet on the weekends, but the days can vary depending on the event and everyone’s availability. This group is a great way to strengthen relationships, create memories, spend quality time with family and grow together in Jesus Christ.
