With your prayers...
as an individual,
choose one day each week to pray for us.
as a family,
pray for the camp at one meal each week.
as a church,
add SMBC to your church prayer list.
What to pray...
that God would soften the hearts of children, teens, and adults who are planning to spend time on the mountain.
that God would change these people's lives, and that they would become part of his eternal work.
that we would be sensitive to guests' needs, and provide them with excellent care that communicates how much they are loved by the Lord.
that our staff would have love, energy, diligence, and wisdom to serve.
that the camp's physical needs would be met.
In the summer, we have a prayer e-mail with specific needs for each week.
To be added to this list, e-mail Al Tinnin at firstname.lastname@example.org
With your hands...
We have spring workdays the third Saturdays of April and May each year. Workdays provide the extra help we need to prepare for summer camp. Call in advance to schedule a special project or show up and pick a work card to jump in. Workers usually arrive between 8:00am and 9:00am. Lunch is provided for all volunteers about 12:30, or when most of us get to a good stopping point!
If workdays are not convenient for your group, we would love to plan a time with your group individually to come and work. Any length of service is helpful: some come for a morning and others who come for a week long mission trip. To plan your trip call or
e-mail Ethan Cromer at 828-437-8788 or email@example.com.
