Winners (and the youngest team) Aiden, Alex, Jim and Connor show off their spoils
More than a dozen young people and around 20 adults enjoyed the recent treasure hunt organised by the Rainbow Beach Christian Community.
Bec Emery did a great job of ensuring there was a good list of clues to find around the main shopping area and the teams finished in record time.
The hunt was followed by a devotion from Father Kevin Lewis, from the Gympie Anglican Church, who used a metal detector to find something of great value – the Bible!
The verses he used are found in Matthew 6:19-21:
“Do not store up for yourselves treasures on earth, where moth and rust destroy, and where thieves break in and steal. But store up for yourselves treasures in heaven, where neither moth nor rust destroys, and where thieves do not break in or steal; for where your treasure is, there your heart will be also.”
The group then enjoyed a sausage sizzle and cheesecake and ice-cream together.
The next monthly gathering will be held on Sunday June 14 from 4-6pm, due to the Pig Day Out happening at the community centre on June 7. Everyone is welcome to come along for a game of soccer for the more energetic, and some good old-fashioned board games.
