Whether you have been a camper, a counselor, attended a retreat or other event, or have simply heard the testimonies, you know that church camp provides a place for an encounter with God! That’s why we are excited to share news with you about The Hills Are Alive! Campaign which will raise $350,000 for Outdoor Ministries within the Heartland (formerly Ohio) Conference.
The Hills are Alive! Campaign will fund key improvements at Templed Hills Camp and strengthen our Campership Fund so that more children and youth can come to camp. For more information, including planned improvements, visit www.loveourhills.org.
We invite and encourage your involvement in the future of Outdoor Ministries and Templed Hills Camp and hope that you will make a financial commitment to support the Campaign. We are receiving support from individuals and from churches. Some churches in the conference have made gifts either from their mission budget or endowments. Others have invited their members to support the campaign and sent in a combined gift. So far, we’ve received more than $100,000 in gifts and pledges! Please consider how you and your church can get involved.
If it would be helpful to have a member of the Campaign Committee attend worship or come meet with your church council or consistory, just email us at firstname.lastname@example.org. You can also call the conference office at 614-885-0722, ext. 2 or 800-282-0740, ext. 2 to speak with Adam Sharp, our Conference Executive Administrator.
On behalf of the committee, we look forward to partnering with you in support of this precious resource for faith formation in our life together.
