A gift of $70 will buy snacks at Conference plus send someone to a Michigan United Methodist Camp.
Members of the Michigan Annual Conference of The United Methodist Church get hungry. (Who wouldn’t be after hours of energizing worship, church business and legislation discussions?) Fortunately, the Camp Board hosts a snack bar for quick refreshments during breaks in exchange for donations toward camp scholarships.
The snack bar is one of the Board’s biggest camp scholarship fundraisers and conference members have been very supportive.
Conference members and visitors are encouraged to sponsor a camper for a day for $70 (roughly the cost of attending one of our camps for one day). Sponsors receive a button that entitles him or her to free snacks and soft drinks during Annual Conference.
This year an “I Love Camping” donation at the $100 level or more includes the snack button plus “thank you” gifts: an insulated travel tumbler for hot or cold beverages, a water bottle, pen and collectible stickers for all Michigan Area United Methodist Camping locations. This offer is limited to the first 50 donors while supplies last. Pledges must be completed by May 29. Advanced donations are recommended by texting CHANGINGLIVES to 91999. Items must be picked up at the snack table at Annual Conference.
Donations can also be made now and throughout Annual Conference online at http://bit.ly/UMCampingSponsor
Ministry shares/apportionments provide about 20% of the operating funds for Michigan United Methodist Camping. Your donations and camp fees make up the remaining budget. Your support matters.
