ASHEVILLE FAQ

Brace yourselves! The following info is for THE greatest spring break trip since Ponce De Leon’s squad went to Florida in 1513 — Asheville 2019! We’re here to answer every question you’ve ever had. If we’ve left something unanswered (Can I pay for the trip in Trident Layers? Can Grandma Susan come? What’s the Netflix password? etc), feel free to contact any of the CSF staff going on the trip (contact info and bios below). But let’s get one thing clear—we want you on this trip.


HOW ARE WE GETTING THERE?
Carpooling! Is there a better way to start making friends than being in the car together for a few hours?

WHAT DOES THE COST COVER?
Food, lodging, transportation. There will be one meal in Asheville that you pay for!

WHERE WILL WE BE STAYING IN ASHEVILLE?
We’ll be in a cozy cabin about 40 minutes from downtown Asheville.

WHEN WILL WE LEAVE AND GET BACK?
We’ll leave Monday the 11th and return Saturday the 16th.

WHAT WILL WE DO WHEN WE GET THERE?
Well, what do you wanna do? This trip, you get to choose-your-own-adventure. If you love the outdoors, we’re tucked away in mountains that have great hiking trails. You can head to downtown Asheville to eat great food, do some shopping, or just explore the Portland of the east. Or you can just cozy up in the cabin with a good book or board games. The chillest trip you’ve ever been on!

WHO’S GOING WITH US?
Jess Moore ([email protected]) She’s super creative and cool. Wanna talk about classic movies? Talk to Jess. Wanna paint or make cool crafts? Go to Jess. Love Harry Potter? You guessed it, so does Jess. You’ll want to be her best friend within 5 minutes of meeting her.

Owen Worthing ([email protected]) If you’ve seen a guy with a creepy mustache around CSF, it was probably Owen. Owen loves games and talking about deep theology and has the coolest Jesus themed mug you’ve ever seen (seriously ask him about it).

???????? Maybe a mystery THIRD STAFF MEMBER? Guaranteed to be the best of the bunch and your newest, closest, oldest friend.


***Questions? Ask ’em! We are so excited you’re interested in joining us on this cozy Asheville retreat!***

FLORIDA FAQ

We’re hyped that you’re interested in the Florida Spring break trip. But first… Click here to get pumped up really quick! Now that you’ve danced a bit, keep reading for info about the best spring break trip in the CSF catalog. It’s literally better than when Lance Armstrong went to the moon!

Let’s answer all of the questions your fun loving brain can think of and if there are still more questions (Why is my heart of hearts so excited for this trip? Will there be a tan guy teaching me how to surf?), feel free to contact any of the CSF staff going on the trip (contact info and bios below). But let’s get one thing clear: This trip is going to be AMAZING and we want YOU to be a part of it with us!


HOW ARE WE GETTING THERE?
Folks, we’re going to be riding in style on some of the most luxurious charter busses in the SEC. These babies have reclining seats, an aisle to walk up and down, outlets for charging your mobile devices, TVs for movies, and a driver who will likely sing gospel songs and soothe you to sleep on this heck-of-a-fun road trip! We’re driving overnight to FL, leaving Friday night and arriving Saturday morning, so we’ll have more time on the beach than ever before!

WHAT DOES THE $399 COVER?
The $399 cost of this trip to Florida (which is the least expensive beach trip you’ll ever take) covers the buses driving us down, all lodging, 3 meals a day in Florida and some sunscreen/aloe for when you fall asleep on the beach. This trip is basically all-inclusive, so it’s even more of an amazing deal! The only things you’ll have to pay for are meals on the way down and up.

WHERE WILL WE BE STAYING IN FLORIDA?
We’ll be staying at the most hospitable church in the universe, Beach Baptist. Seriously this place puts CSF’s hospitality to shame. The Motto of the staff is “if you didn’t get it, it’s because you didn’t ask for it.” So you’ll be feeling right at home from the get-go. This church is going to be the most relaxing place you’ll ever stay and that’s a 100% emoji guarantee. On top of all this greatness, they’re located right on the beach in Ft. Myers and have plenty of room for all of our air mattresses, and Eno hammocks. Oh, and they have a soft serve ice cream machine ready for you 24/7!

WHAT WILL WE DO WHEN WE GET THERE?
When we get there, you’ll have to take a second to recover from shock because you’re going to be blown away by how close we are to the beach. Yes, the beach is about 100 yards away. We’ll have some free time once we get there (perfect for setting up your air mattress or Eno, playing some games, smelling the ocean breeze, that sort of thing).

The first night we’ll get to know each other, talk about how fun this trip will be, and split up into our bible study groups and chat. Then, we’ll rally back up for a potential dance party, and finish off with something you’ll get very used to this week: CHILLIN’. The whole time we’re down there you’ll have the entire day to spend leisurely on the beach. Whether you’re a sun seeking tanner or a try-hard spike-baller, the day is yours to enjoy. There are bikes to ride around the island and plenty of activities around to keep your interest.

At night we’re going to keep with the theme of relaxation and enjoy dinner provided by the church (You literally just have to show up!) and then we’ll head to the sanctuary for some worship! Some nights we’ll even head out to the beach for worship. Afterward, we’ll split up to hang with our groups. After group time we’ll have a bit more free time before bed so you can play some late night games or take a walk on the beach.

UTAH SKI TRIP FAQ

This March, a stacked group of students and four CSF staff members, Lydia Slayden, Josie Dupler, Kylie Lund, and Ethan Willoughby will be heading out to Salt Lake City, Utah. Also coming is our infamous, king of the slopes, surprise guest Tater Cunningham. This week long trip will be filled with home cooked food, deep talks and goofing off, and skiing/snowboarding. We are staying at Southeast Christian Church in Salt Lake City. We will be spending the week studying the bible, growing closer to God, and growing closer to a community of friends; all the while enjoying the incredible mountains in Utah. This is the trip to come on if you want an experience of a lifetime!


HOW ARE WE GETTING THERE?
We are taking a private jet! Just kidding, we’ll be taking 15 passenger vans! EVEN BETTER.

WHAT DOES THE $490 COVER?
The $490 will cover your lodging, transportation, 3 day lift ticket (the 4th day option is an extra $89), and meals while in Salt Lake City (travel days you’ll be required to cover your own food, and one day when we go out to dinner in SLC). This cost does not include ski rentals, so you can either bring your own skis or rent some while we’re there!

WHERE WILL WE BE STAYING?
On the way out to Utah, we’ll be staying the night in Lincoln, Nebraska before finishing our trek to SLC!

During the week in Salt Lake City we will be staying at:
Southeast Christian Church
1881 E Vine St, Salt Lake City, UT 84121
www.southeast.cc

On the way back from Utah, we will be stopping overnight in Kansas City, MO.


WHAT WILL WE DO WHEN WE GET THERE?
Our first night in Utah, we will settle into the church; stretch, hangout, and play games. Monday, Tuesday, and Thursday will be our days on the slopes! After we shred and slalom and bunny hill it up, we’ll head back to the church, shower, eat some dinner, worship, and then break into small groups for bible study. There will be time every night for playing games and hanging out. Wednesday will be a FREE DAY! We’ll explore the city, do something fun together, shop ’til we drop, etc. Those who want to can ski that day too, but you’ll have to pay for an extra lift ticket. Wednesday night we’ll all go out to eat together. This trip is going to be amazing and we can’t wait for YOU to be on it.

WHEN WILL WE LEAVE AND GET BACK?
We leave early in the morning on Saturday the 9th. We will spend the first night in Nebraska. We will arrive on the 10th to Salt Lake City, UT. We’ll start back home on Friday the 15th and drive through the night to arrive home on Saturday the 16th as early as possible (it will be late).

WHAT IS EXPECTED OF ME?
First, we want to make sure we are great guests to all the people/places hosting us. Make sure to take extra care of wherever we are! Second, be ready to party 24/7! Laugh a lot, make new friends and memories, see the beauty and love of God on display daily, and try not to require a hospital run.

You can submit your $100 deposit asap and join us on this amazing trip!


WHO’S GOING WITH US?
Sit down for this one. There will be 40 students, 4 CSF staff members, special guest Tater Cunningham, and hopefully a trip mom!

Lydia Slayden ([email protected]) the jack of all trades, one and only, fearless leader LYDIA. This girl does it all. Oh, there is Lydia in a wedding! She did the bride’s hair and now is the maid of honor? Of course. Oh there she is hosting a leadership gathering for our students! She’s preaching about how to “keep your love on” and praying over 70 girls? Duh. Get pumped to get rad with the one who slays the slopes.

Josie Dupler ([email protected]) This girl’s got a need for speed and is ready to fly down the slopes while asking you about your soul, chugging coffee, and reading a good book all at the same time. Josie loves the nations and is WILD at heart. Better hope you’re assigned to her van, because you don’t want to miss 7 days with Joe-Z.

Ethan Willoughby ([email protected]) This crazy cat will catch you off guard with his sass and practical jokes. Get your game face on for 2 days driving full of meme wars. He’s goofy and kind-hearted and ready to be your best friend. (But watch out, you’ll wake up to Ethan pushing 115 MPH on the speedometer.)

Kylie Lund ([email protected]) in the words of David Hidrogo, “You will find her eating popcorn in a corner under a blanket rehearsing DanceBlue choreography; is small”
