Let’s Go Camping!

The American Lutheran Church Care Corner will be supporting our camping ministry partner, Camp EWALU near Strawberry Point, in March.

On Sunday, March 15 (2020) we will be celebrating "Camp Sunday" at our morning service. Clark Baldwin, EWALU's Executive Director, will join us as a guest speaker. Accompanying him will be some additional camp staff members, who will share camp music with the Sunday school children. During fellowship hour, Mr. Baldwin will lead an adult forum in the Confirmation classroom.

Through the month of March, the Care Corner will be collecting donations to fulfill our 2019 congregational commitment of $500 to EWALU. Through an unusual year with the 75th Anniversary, Benevolence giving was down slightly, and we were not able to complete our annual pledge to EWALU. We are hoping to catch up on our support of this very worthy ministry with our congregation's support in March.

Don't forget that enrollment for 2020 summer camp is open now! There are discounts for early enrollment. As always, our Christian Education department will supply camper ships for heal of the early bird enrollment fee of any youth in our congregation. You can learn more about the camp experiences offered at Many of our young people have shared in the inspiring and life-changing experience of Camp EWALU over the years.

Finally, some exciting news is that the camp is kicking off a capital campaign to remodel and expand Cedar Lodge. This project will include enhancements and updates to the seating area and kitchen of Cedar Lodge, which is EWALU's main dining hall. The basement of the lodge, which houses the camp's summer staff members, also will be modernized. We look forward to supporting Camp EWALU in this project, and helping them to carry on their important camp ministry for many years to come!
