Dear Friends of Redwood Glen,
We here at Redwood Glen are watching God do miracles. We sent the word out and you have responded. We are moving closer and closer to the goal of becoming water independent. All we can say is
So far we have
raised over $135,000 in cash and promised goods towards our goal of $400,000. The first deadline we set was May 1. Even though we did not reach our goal by this past Sunday, we have raised enough to continue on with the mission that God has laid out for us.
With summer camp registrations coming in and more guest groups this year than ever before, our fundraising efforts continue and we hope to have $400,000 raised by year-end to pay in full our new water system.
Let me share 2 upcoming events at Redwood Glen that you can be a part of:
(1) OUR ANNUAL WORK DAY = Sat. May 21
(Note the date change this year). We have many projects that include cleaning, raking, painting and repairing. There is a job for both young and old, whether you’re small or tall, a he or a she. We’d love to see you here to help us prepare the camp for summer. Breakfast will be served at 8:00am and the tasks will be tackled at 8:30, with a picnic lunch for all. Please RSVP
(2) OPEN HOUSE & MILLER DEDICATION = Sat. June 25. It all starts at 11:00 am with the Children’s Music And Drama Camp performance, followed by lunch in the picnic area. At 1:00 pm we will dedicate the new Miller Meeting Room (the former office). Named after the entire Miller family for the many years of service that Ray, Romona, Denise, Debbie, and the rest of the clan have given to the ministry of Redwood Glen. Most of the Millers will be here for this event so this would be your chance to see them again and say hi. Reserve your lunch tickets
here ($8 for adults, $5 for kids).
I see many, many exciting changes taking place here. Erin, our Interim Food Services Manager, is transforming meals into Food Network quality. Ronald as Interim Maintenance Manager is moving the camp from maintaining mode into growth mode. Larry Jay and Jeff are continuing to do their “director’s magic” in filling the camp and making sure it all runs smoothly.
If you would like to be part of our staff team, we have a few positions open for
summer staff. If you are interested or know someone who is, call the camp office at (650) 879-0320,
email us, or go online to
download an application.
Well, that’s where I’m at for the moment . . . at least until I learn and grow just a little bit more.
Now to him who is able to do immeasurably more than all we ask or imagine, according to his power that is at work within us, to him be glory in the church and in Christ Jesus throughout all generations, for ever and ever! Amen. (Ephesians 3:20-21)
