At the end of Bishop Tim Smith’s remarks on Friday, he announced Lutheridge’s 75th Birthday Capital Campaign and was joined on stage by 60 counselors singing and leading the crowd in camp songs. Pastors Tim and Mary Canniff-Kuhn, co-chairs of the campaign, invited us to “light a candle, pass the faith” by supporting camp ministry.

Pastor Mary shared a story of the camp counselor who left a lasting impact on her life and those gathered were invited to continue the impact by giving to the campaign. Pastor Nathan Gragg, NovusWay Development Officer, provided details about the campaign and invited gifts—birthday gifts!—to propel the ministry of Lutheridge into the future.

The camp crew ended the day by leading vespers; Pastor Tim Canniff-Kuhn preached.
