February Benevolence: Camp Lebanon
Camp Lebanon has been a favorite site for campers since 1949. From June to September Camp Lebanon offers over night camp for children from 1st through 12th grade. Counselors from across the nation and from many foreign countries come to Camp Lebanon for many reasons, but primarily they find it to be a place to become closer to God and to share His love with the campers. Children enjoy the love, warmth, laughter, tears, friendships, fun, and memories which remain throughout the years.
So Whatever Happened to Those Fuel Offering Envelopes?
You may have noticed that the offering envelopes for 2015 do not include fuel (or building) envelopes. This was done as part of the plan to lower the cost of ordering the envelopes (about a 50% savings). But while the envelopes are no longer there, the fuel costs remain a major expense for the Church. January and February have brought an extra $1700 in fuel costs (budget plan adjustment from 2014 usage) and a $1,000 heater bill. While many of you may already be adding your fuel contributions to your regular envelope giving, a special one-time offering boost this month would help defray these higher than expected costs so early in 2015. If you are able, please make a special designated offering for fuel costs on one of the remaining Sundays in February.
