CAMP PIONEER will remain our designated special mission for June envelopes. Planning for summer activities is continuing as COVID restrictions change, but it is clear that not all of the usual camps and other activities will be able to proceed this year. Please note that cabins will be open and available for family units through the summer if you are looking for a peaceful family retreat location. Pastor Bahr wishes to share that there are hopeful options being considered for the future of our camp. However, this summer will present special financial challenges because of COVID, so our help is needed to support our camp during the next few months. If you would like to help keep our camp open, please send your donation to church in your June special mission envelope (or another clearly marked envelope), or donate online under “special mission”.
The current COVID crisis is bringing new focus to old challenges regarding estate planning. The threat of illness, disability or death makes real the need to make sure that “wishes” are written down to become “directions” instead. Your LCMS Foundation Gift Planning Counselor is available NOW to begin working with you toward that plan. The Counselor can meet with you in person or by video conference. Contact Robert Wirth, LCMS Foundation Gift Planner @ (firstname.lastname@example.org) robert.wirth (at) lfnd (dot) org or 716-863-4427.
