EXTRAVAGANT GENEROSITY

Over the past 9 months, I have been able to witness the generosity of the people at Christ Church. Before coming to Davenport, I had heard about it, but it has been especially awesome to see it firsthand. It shows how committed you are to the mission of this church and how you want to support it wholeheartedly.

So, I want to thank everyone for supporting the camp fund. This fund allows us to help provide financial assistance to children and youth students who desire to attend camp. Kid Start kids go to camp at Pictured Rocks and our Endeavor students attend Summer Games University (SGU).

Christ Church has a long history of supporting SGU, even since it’s inception in a true camp environment (SGU is now located on the campus of Grinnell College). We believe in SGU. It provides a wonderful opportunity for young people to experience God’s love and develop relationships with other campers, huddle leaders, and adult staff.

You can still contribute to this fund! Simply click on “GIVE” at christchurchdavenport.org or drop a check in the offering plate with “CAMP” in the memo line.

Our students still have time to register for SGU. Visit www.sgu.camp to register; paper copies can be picked up at Endeavor on Wednesday nights. The total cost of SGU, including the $75 non-refundable deposit, is $325. Through the extravagant generosity of this congregation, Christ Church is able to offer “campership” scholarships for students who wish to participate in Summer Games University who need assistance.

Please contact Helen at helenp@christchurchdavenport.org or 563.391.5488 with questions about camp or camperships.

Thank you again, Christ Church, for being true to who you are and living out God’s mission here on earth.
