Kids from St. Andrew By-the-Sea United Methodist Church on Hilton Head Island scramble Friday to board their charter bus to Orlando.
Twenty-eight members of the church youth group and six adult minders are heading for a weekend of fun and music at Florida's biggest Christian music festival, Rock the Universe, being held at Universal Studios. Their tickets include entry to 16 concerts, as well as access to the theme park's rides. Youth Pastor Daniel Griswold said the trip provides sixth-graders coming into the youth group and ninth-graders entering the high school group a chance to bond.
Youth groups from other local churches were also planning to attend the festival, including St. Luke's Church and First Presbyterian Church on Hilton Head and Lowcountry Community Church in Bluffton.
