My day started earlier than normal. The Traditional service at the North Liberty United Methodist Church is held at 8 am. The church is about 6 miles from the campground. This meant I had to get up about 6:30 in order to get ready for church. There weren't but about 25 people there, but I was told that they usually have many more.
