• Lutherdale is our Mission of the Month in July

Dear Group Leader,

Several years ago, Greg Forseth, formed the GLOVES, Program at Lutherdale. The purpose of the program was to bring Lutherdale supporters together to work jointly on camp projects. Besides helping Lutherdale, GLOVES is an opportunity to bring families and/or groups [men’s, women’s, and/or youth] from your church together for service projects and retreats. Your church group may choose to attend as many or as few of the GLOVES Days as desired. A typical GLOVES Day begins at 7:30 A.M. and lasts until 4:00 P.M. Some groups work the whole day; others, part of the day. Your group can build a Bible Study or retreat around the work projects. Breakfast and lunch are provided by Lutherdale.

GLOVES Days for 2016 third Saturday of the month:

3/19, 4/16, 5/21, 6/18, 7/16, 8/20, 9/17, 10/15, 11/19 and 12/17

While the projects are best-suited for adults [men and women], youth are encouraged to come, too. Groups as well as individuals are all welcome!

In conjunction with GLOVES Days, we will be offering overnight fellowship opportunities. The Friday night before each GLOVES Day [Saturday] will be an open invitation for volunteers to come out any time after 4:00 P.M. to have some fun and spend some time at the camp-not working. We will be taking out the boats in the summer; volunteers can bring snowmobiles, four wheelers, and/or their own boats. We can use the toboggan runs and the 50 acres as well as the lake to get to know each other a little better. Friday night dinner as well as Saturday breakfast and lunch will be provided. This is a great opportunity for individuals, families, and/or groups [men’s, women’s, and/or youth] from your church for a wonderful fellowship and service weekend. For questions or to participate in GLOVES, please visit Lutherdale.
