Watson Retreat Center

GIVING TUESDAY

We invite you to join the movement of Giving Tuesday on November 30, 2021. With the completion of the HOPE Conference Center, it is time to renew aging facilities to increase Lutherdale's flexibility for use by both youth and adults.

The Watson Retreat Center is still actively used and much needed

for large rental groups.  Our change in guest needs require us to make renovations to ensure this building meets Lutherdale’s needs.

This winter, volunteers will re-configure the upper level rooms into larger bedrooms with strong, sturdy bunkbeds for youth campers.

OUR GOAL

Replace current single bed frames (22) with sleek, sturdy bunkbeds (25 sets)

for a total of $15,000 – doubling the capacity of guests

we are able to serve in the Watson Retreat Center. 

Generous donors stepped forward to help Lutherdale meet our goal of

$15,000 for 25 sets of new bunkbeds for the Watson Retreat Center.  THANK YOU!

More donors came forward and joined together to create a second matching gift of $4300!  Generosity made the match a reality for $8600 towards new mattresses for the new bunkbeds.  PRAISE THE LORD.

 

The giving continues.  Each additional gift will go towards replacing additional mattresses at camp, providing a good night's rest at Lutherdale.

 

With your help, Lutherdale will be able to serve more guests and be a space where people of all ages continue to experience God's love. This Giving Tuesday, we ask you to prayerfully consider supporting the ministry of Lutherdale.
