Would You Like to Help

Camp Egan on April 9?

Sign Up by April 2.

We’re planning a church workday at Egan Camp and Retreat Center on Saturday, April 9th. We’ll leave the church at 8:00 am in convoy for those who don’t know how to get there. (We’ll take our cars so that folks can leave when they need to.) If anyone needs to arrive later, that’s not a problem.

If the weather’s nice, we’ll do some work on flowerbeds, rake walnuts and leaves, power wash the swimming pool, paint and number the disc golf “holes” or paint/stain the Founder’s House deck.

If the weather’s rainy or cold, we’ll paint inside the buildings, mount TV’s and sound system in the Tabernacle, and scrape and paint the A/C ducts in the dining hall.

These are a few of the tasks that need to be done. The tasks vary with whoever volunteers and whatever you/we feel comfortable doing and can be done with the time we have available. We won’t get it all done, but we’ll put a big dent in the list!

Lunch will be served at camp. A sign-up sheet is out in the Narthex. Let us know what you like doing, and we’ll try to match you with the right task.

FUMC Missions Coordinator and

Member of Egan Site Development Committee
