Young adults from First Christian Reformed Church in Pella, Iowa, are using geocaching to let others know about their group and their church. Geocaching involves hiding a number of items in a particular location, then posting the location’s GPS (Global Positioning System) coordinates online. Other people find the cache using the coordinates, often taking an item from the cache and leaving something else in return.
The group’s cache, located in an old cemetery, contains items such as catechism books, Cadet materials, and church brochures—some of which have been taken. Treasure hunters have replaced those with hometown postcards, candy, and other items.
To learn more, go to www.geocaching.com and type in zip code 50219 in the upper right-hand corner. Then scroll down the list and search for the title “Koffie with the Kleins.”
