listed above are all part of the team that will share Jesus with hundreds of
kids this summer. Please pray that they would allow the Spirit to use them so
that the kids who come would see Jesus at work through them. Pray for unity
among the team, energy, excitement, growth in their personal relationships with
Jesus, humility to serve like Jesus served, and to exemplify the fruits of the
Spirit. Pray for their safety as they lead campers through activities, travel to Vacation Bible Schools, rest for the weekends and safety as they spent time outdoors.
We are still
in need of a couple counselors for the summer. Please pray that God would call
young adults to camp to serve.
hundreds of campers of all ages come to camp for many different reasons. Some
come because they were invited; some because they feel loved and accepted; some
because they want to grow in their faith. These campers come from many
different backgrounds and experiences—some have never heard about Jesus, while
others have heard about Him a lot. Please pray that the campers would
experience Jesus while at camp. Pray that they would not be afraid or homesick,
for safety in their activities, and for them to feel loved and accepted. And as camper’s go home pray that they understand
that God goes with them. Pray for them to be the light of the world in their
homes, schools, activities and communities.

these areas of camp are where campers will be this summer and where God works.
Please pray that God would work in huge ways in each of the places- whether
they are eating, having fun, or getting ready for bed. Pray for safety in each
of these places and for campers and staff to know that God is present.
to our onsite activities, each week UMM sends out teams into different
partnering churches to bring a Vacation Bible School to the community. Please
pray for these communities to be excited and supportive of VBS. Pray for many kids
to sign up and for people in the churches to help facilitate. Pray for safety
in travel and during the week, great partnerships in host homes, and for God to
move in powerful ways in the camper’s, congregation’s, and the staff’s lives.
Along with summer
programs, UMM is available to rent for groups, parties, reunions, and weddings
year-round. Please pray for the groups that will be coming this summer to UMM.
Pray that those who have never had a relationship and those who may have wondered
away from God might have their faith sparked through their time in creation and
community. Pray that they would leave camp with a deep desire to know more
Sweet Corn & Quilt Festival
UMM has a Sweet Corn Festival and Quilt Auction to celebrate what God has done
and as a fundraiser. This year, UMM is excited to celebrate 70 years of
ministry! Please pray for the preparations for the celebration, a large
attendance, and for God to provide financially. Pray that people would be bold
to share about what God has done in their lives through camp so that He might
that God can do exceedingly and abundantly beyond all that we can ask or
imagine as He says in His word! Thank you for believing with us!
