BRETHREN WOODS NEWS

      Linville Creek has 3 youth, Sally Hotchkiss, Sydney Hinegardner, & Micah Leininger, who will be serving as camp counselors at Brethren Woods this summer.  Women’s Fellowship is “adopting” them and will be providing a scholarship for each counselor to help supplement the camp salary.  We would also like to provide each counselor with some special treats and care packages, letters of encouragement and prayer support each week.  There is a sign-up sheet in the narthex if you would like to be a special counselor support for a week during the summer camp season.  If you can’t deliver your items to camp, let the church office know and we will get them to camp.

Volunteers Still Needed! Brethren Woods is looking for volunteers to help run the summer camp program. Volunteers serve as camp counselors, kitchen assistants, maintenance assistants and much more! The camp needs volunteer counselors for June 11-16 (2-3 female, 1 male), June 25-30 (2 female, 3 male), July 9-14 (2 male), July 16-21 (2 female, 3 male), and July 23-28 (2 male). Please prayerfully consider how God might be calling you to serve the ministry at camp this summer!

Helping Hands Workdays
Third Tuesday of Each Month

Camp’s ministry happens all throughout the year, so we need volunteer help every month to keep up with our grounds, facilities, and programs.  You can join us every month on the third Tuesday for our Helping Hands Workday.  There are always indoor and outdoor projects available for all kinds of skills, so there’s sure to be something that’s just right for you!  Just let us know what you’re interested in when you call ahead to sign-up.  This workday is perfect for retired folks, homeschool families, or others with flexible weekdays.  See you there!  Call to let them know you’re coming & the type of work you’d like to do.

The Year-Round Program Calendar is posted on the Brethren Woods bulletin board. More information and registration forms can be found on the Brethren Woods bulletin board here at church or on their webpage:
