Where camp comes to you…year-round!!
Lutherhaven Community Outreach!
Lutherhaven brings monthly youth and children's ministry to over a dozen neighborhood churches around the region through Lutherhaven Community Outreach!
You can be one of them!
Lutherhaven Community Outreach is funded in part by a generous grant from the M.J. Murdock Charitable Trust, Vancouver, WA through their Vision & Call Internship Initiative.
Lutherhaven Community Outreach sends a pair of talented young adult leaders to congregations each month for children's, youth and family programs.
Thirteen congregations from Wilbur to Lenore to Ellensburg (look 'em up!) are participating in Lutherhaven Community Outreach for the 2012-13 season. Programs include afternoon Kid's Clubs, Youth Nights, Family Events, Service & Outreach Opportunities, and Leadership Training.
How Does Lutherhaven Community Outreach Work?
- Congregations sometimes partner with other churches and organizations in the community to sponsor Lutherhaven Community Outreach as a ministry to their neighbors and community
- The cost of $100-$150 per month for the 9-month program covers gas and vehicle costs, program expenses, and four to five hours of programming each month with two ministry staff
- Congregations provide volunteer support, contributing significant adult mentors to the leadership mix
- Congregations make overnight housing and meals for our two program staff available depending on their location and traveling distance for the team
- Our program staff works with congregations to schedule a specific day each month for the program as well as what type of event best fits the church's needs and community
What Lutherhaven Provides
- Regularly scheduled monthly kids, youth, and/or family programming, September to May
- Four to five hours of programming, typically in the afternoon for one group and evening for another
- Two trained ministry staff
- Program materials
Why Lutherhaven Community Outreach?
- More than half of Lutherhaven's constituent congregations are located in rural communities.
- Typically, half of those living in rural towns across the nation have no church connection.
- So many small town and rural Lutheran congregations throughout our region lack the resources to build the dynamic youth and family ministry they desire.
- Not only does Lutherhaven connect as always with hundreds of kids, youth and families at summer camp and in our summer Day Camp program ... we now build significant year-round connections to kids, families and communities.
- The program opens the door for more and more kids to hear about Jesus, many who've never heard the Gospel before!
