“At Sentinel I feel safe. I feel closer to God here.” -summer camper
As they stepped off the map into uncharted territory, Meriwether Lewis discovered that what
was in front of him was nothing like what was behind him, and that what had brought him to
this point in the journey would take him no farther. Lewis faced a daunting decision: What
would he do now? Lewis and Clark and their Corps of Discovery were looking for a water
route, but now had run out of water. How do you canoe over mountains?
“Canoeing the Mountains” by Tod Bolsinger
This past year has been "uncharted territory". What is in front of us is nothing like what was behind us, yet the mission at Camp Sentinel continues strong. This past summer, we were open for day and family camping in the fresh air of Sentinel’s 629 acres. In the fall, Sentinel Lodge opened for Student Care, a place of guided learning for local school children while parents are at work. Sentinel Student Care continues in 2021.
Sentinel offers a place for personal and spiritual growth and meets the needs of the local community. This is how we stay missional by applying God's unchanging Truth in love to a changing world.
Our 2021 theme is "Steadfast". Firm in belief. Determined. Firmly fixed in place. Immovable.
"The steadfast love of the LORD never ceases; his mercies never come to an end; they are new every morning; great is your faithfulness.”
Camp provides a place where we can take unhurried moments to focus on the steadfast love of our unchanging God. At camp, we are reminded of how immovable God by spending time in the quiet, gazing at the bright stars at night. Our faith deepens as we are reminded that the steadfast love of the LORD never ceases…great is Thy faithfulness.
We stepped out in faith and we need your help. So many face financial hardship, with reduction in programs and group retreats due to COVID-19, Sentinel needs your help. We are looking for 400 friends, churches, groups of people to stand with us. We know finances are a challenge for some and we know some have capacity to give and support. Here is the ask; we are asking 100 friends or churches to give $1000 and 300 friends to give $300. This would help Sentinel recover and continue ministry. These gifts may be one time or met in payments.
Please prayerfully consider helping the place we all love continue to serve children and families. Tax deductible donations may be sent to the camp office or made securely at the link below.
Moments at camp are life changing. Sentinel programs are Bible study theme based with staff and volunteers who give of their time to walk alongside the campers. The outdoor environment is unique. We believe through ministry partnership that "Relationships are Built and Lives are Changed." Thank you for standing with us in ministry!
See you on the mountaintop,
