Camp Lebanon News – April 2018

April Showers of Praise & Prayer

Praise God for an exciting spring!
Thanks for praying us through a full and blessed winter season of ministry, as God sent us 1774 guests to love in the name of Jesus. We had a full month of Quilt Retreats in March – over 425 quilters and scrapbookers registered for four sessions, filling 24 of March’s 31 days.  Read more about The Lemonade Stand theme for quilt on the blog!  Ice out on Cedar Lake looks to be late, but momentum is growing for a full spring schedule.  After an amazing Men’s Advance!, we are heading to the Circle C Ranch for Dads N Lads and Mother/Daughter. Yeehaw!  Then comes “Young at Heart” for senior adults and YAR // Spring for young adults. Save your spot soon and join the fun!

Camp Owners Bless Gym Venture

After decades of dreams, the long-awaited gym on the North 40 took a big step closer to reality. At Camp’s Annual Meeting on February 24, member churches authorized the Board to proceed with a campaign to fund a multi-purpose rec facility and complementing lodge, as the Lord leads and provides for the $4M effort. The new complex would establish a second ministry site. Known as Vision 2020, fundraising begins this spring and summer. Now is a great time to pray for Camp’s staff and Board as they lead the way.
