PSAh 'tS 74:15-17 ,ooo< ooo Church wants to send kids to camp By Scott Swanson Of The New Era Know any youngsters who could benefit from going to camp? Fir Lawn Lutheran Church wants to hear from you. Pastor Joe Medley said the church has decided to send at least 10 kids, between grades 3 to 12, to summer camp this year as a Way of reaching out to the community's youth: "We're an older congregation with some resources, but no kids in this age group," he said. "What we decided was to see how many kids we can get to go to camp." The cost for a week at Camp Lutherwood, located near Chestrire between.Junction City and Flor- ence, is $325. Medley said he's personally visited the camp and he's planning to go back this sum- mer to monitor how his church's efforts are panning out. He said the camp is cooperatively operated by the Missouri Synod and Evangeli- cal Lutheran Church of America, with which Fir Lawn is associated. "They have a great staff," he said. "All of the staff members are in college or older." After Medley m~ide the an- nouncement in late May, enough funds were raised immediately to pay for 2 youngsters to go attend camp. "We're selling body parts," he joked. The church's efforts extend to all children and Medley said the more the merrier. "We want people who are not from our church," he said. "We don't care whether they go to church or not. Do you know a kid who needs a week of love? Tell US." To fund the effort, the church will hold a "Camp Cookout" and auction, with church member An- gle Fisher serving up hot dogs and beans for $5 a plate, from 6 gregation that the program is an ef- four facilities for camping ministry fort to re-establish connections that but today have only one? have been lost.
