A Letter from our Board Chairman
Dear friend of Grindstone Lake Bible Camp,
Spring greetings in the name of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ! The 2017 camping season is almost here,and once again,we are busy planning and making preparations for campus improvements. We anticipate God doing great things again this summer at GLBC.
As a devoted supporter of camp, we want to share some concerns and needs that our aging campus has. As you know, the camper fees we charge do not cover our annual expenses. If they did, our camper fees would be out of reach for many families. Instead, GLBC has relied on faithful partners like yourself to supply the need that we have to keep camp affordable and viable.
Below you will find the "Top Five" projects the Board of Directors have deemed as priorities or are in need of being replaced or completed. We bring these to you as a matter of consideration and prayer. We realize that what we share are large dollar amounts, however, we also realize that we serve an awesome God, who supplies all our needs.
1. Replacing the convection ovens in the kitchen.....................$8,000.00
2. Replacing the automatic commercial pan washer in the kitchen........$2,500.00
3. Replacing the two walking bridges that go over the mote to the girls cabins...$1,200/bridge
4. Updating the bathrooms and showers in the boys and girls cabins.......$1,500.00/bathroom (10 bathrooms total )
5. Converting our temporary chapel bldg into a new administration office/nurses station/staff lounge. There has already been a generous contribution of $5,000.00 towards this project, we estimate it will take another $10,000.00 to complete it.
Would you be willing to contribute to one of these important projects or perhaps pay for an entire project in full? Please prayerfully consider this important ministry as God lays it on your heart. If you are willing to contribute please make your check out to GLBC and mail it to:
