God’s Work, Our Hands

God’s Work, our Hands. Saturday, Sept. 8th

Our day will begin at 9:00 AM with a short worship service. Work projects will include, but not be limited to:

  • Erecting a sun shade at the archery range
  • Planting bushes in and around the prayer labyrinth
  • Landscaping the new building
  • Cutting up downed trees to line trails and for fire wood
  • Painting the decking of Kuehner Center
  • Clearing trails

Indoor projects will be included, if we have participants willing to serve out of the heat or sitting down. Let us know if this is a need.

We should take tools, specifically chain saws, rakes, shovels and spades. As work projects go, just about any other tools would also be helpful. Please label any tools so that they do not get mixed up with the camp’s tools or tools from other groups. The camp’s personnel recommends that each participant bring comfortable work gloves (again, please label). The camp also will have some one-size-fits-all gloves on hand. Plenty of water will be available.

Camp personnel said the plan is to work all morning, break for lunch (provided), have some free time with the pool open, etc., start again around 2:00 and end the day at 4:30. Some groups stay the day and some leave after lunch, depending on the heat and their stamina. Many UELC members will need to help football parking in the afternoon for a 7:30 game. The camp is flexible for anyone needed to come and go at different than the scheduled agenda.


Please sign up by Sept. 3rd and indicate if you have any dietary restrictions. We will pass the latter information on to camp personnel. The signup sheet indicates transportation information.


We look forward to seeing you all on the 8th!
