End of 2020 Reflections
Has this year been hard or what? As we see 2020 coming to an end, it's a great time to reflect. When COVID-19 brought all of lives to a screeching halt in March, little did we know we'd be looking at 3/4 of a year WITHOUT OUR CHILDREN. We miss them terribly. Nine months of no senior luncheons. Wednesdays just aren't the same. We are so anxious to see everyone again. We're gearing up for 2021 and making plans. We are working on some options to improve our facilities to include some additional (and much needed) bathroom facilities as well as some other changes to make our spaces more comfortable for its precious inhabitants. We have been knocked down this year, for sure. Thankfully, we serve a BIG GOD who will continue to direct our ministry. We are watching numbers. We are listening to recommendations from medical professionals. But more importantly, we are praying protection over our entire Mt. Calvary family and the community as a whole. God is still at work. We covet your prayers as we move forward.
Summer Camp Cancelled
Mt. Calvary Outreach Center’s Board of Directors met Thursday, April 23 and determined that the Summer Enrichment Program scheduled for June 1 – July 31 will be cancelled this year. It was a difficult decision, but due to the nature of camp, the Board felt it would be too difficult to maintain social distancing in the building and while being transported. The ministry is still exploring summer ministry options, but is waiting on the governor to announce a lift in restrictions.
Camp Wrap Up
June 2019 brought us a load of fun with over 100 campers ages 3-16. The building was alive and bustling with sweet sounds of adults pouring into the lives of our precious campers. Our students learned Bible lessons, kept their math and reading skills sharp through educational play, enjoyed pool time, learned tennis, experienced nutritional education, took a field trip to a water park, and more. We pack a TON into 4 weeks! Please pray with us, if you would, about extending camp. It's been on our hearts for a while now. Won't you pray that we can find the funds and staff to make it happen?
