Outdoor Fun and Fellowship

Nancy Brown-Koeller

We're O.F.F.! Outdoor Fun and Fellowship is an opportunity for us to meet and get to know one another at First Congregational while enjoying the abundance of nature centers, parks, trails and natural resources we have been blessed with in the Fox Cities area. These outings all take place within one hour of Appleton, and there are activities of various types and skill levels.


All fees are paid upon arrival. Outings are weather dependent. Other conditions can change as well, so we need to know in advance if you’re coming and where you plan to meet. You may let us know you’re coming by signing up in the Narthex (email required) or by contacting Nancy Brown-Koeller.
