Did you know that Meck sits on approximately 80 acres? It’s true, and there’s so much left unexplored right here on the property. But Meck didn’t start with this large building and vast acreage. We started small. We’re talking small hotel conference space and a handful of attenders. But God blessed this church to grow and grow… and then grow some more. 

Pack the family in the car and head over to Meck on July 11 or 12 for a walking experience through our beautiful, undeveloped land (unseen by the vast majority of Meckers) that highlights the vision and history that started it all here at Meck and the future that lies ahead right here in the often undiscovered backwoods of Meck. With free snowcones, interactive stations for kids and a few other surprises, there’s something along this trail for kids and adults alike!


"Can I bring my dog?"

Yes, you're more than welcome to bring your dog. We just ask that all dogs remain on a leash at all times and that you clean up after any waste. 

"What can I expect?"

You can expect a peaceful walk through Meck's backwoods which will tell you more about Meck's past, a bit about what's in store for our future, scavenger hunts for the kids and free snow cones. It is a walking trail so picture a peaceful hike.

"What should I wear?"

This is a walking trail through the woods so please wear what you're most comfortable in. We recommend closed-toe shoes.

"Can I bring a stroller?"

We do not recommend using strollers on this trail as it may be dangerous.

"Do I have to wear a mask?"

You can rest assured that we are taking every measure to keep you safe. We're asking everyone to abide by social distancing rules which means keeping a distance of six feet. If you find yourself in a position where you're approaching someone within that distance, we ask that you bring a mask and wear it.

"Free snow cones? What safety precautions are you taking?"

All snow cone volunteers and staff will be wearing masks and gloves. Furthermore, we will take breaks often to wash hands and sanitize.

"What other safety precautions are you taking?"

All of our staff and volunteers will be wearing masks, following social distancing guidelines and making sure guests are following these state-mandated guidelines as well. We will also have our staff sanitizing bathrooms. All guests must wear a mask upon entering The Grounds or the West Atrium for restroom use per state laws.

"Will the Meck Trail be open after this event?"

 As of now, this is a one-time event.
