Savannah and the surrounding area are beautiful and provide many options for groups and individuals to have fun.  We do not have sightseeing built into the event, but you do have the option to add on fun activities either before or after River of Life. Contact Shannon Baxter if you would like to know about some of the options available to your group. Isle of Hope UMC will not be able to offer lodging to groups outside the date range for the event.
