Ewalu Middle School Overnight Retreat!

On Saturday, April 28th we will head to Ewalu Bible Camp to stay in the new Walnut Lodge for an overnight retreat.  We will use this time to build new relationships and strengthen others and to grow in our understanding of who God is through his creation.  Activities will include: Use of the high/low ropes courses, hayrack ride, outdoor activities with some of the high school student leaders, campfire worship with s’mores, and more!  The cost per person will be $80 and will include lodging, dinner on Saturday night and breakfast on Sunday morning, snacks, and all activities.  NO CELL PHONES OR iPOD/iPAD/MP3 PLAYERS OR ANY OTHER ELECTRONIC DEVICES WILL BE ALLOWED!  Please email carterm@lcrmarion.org to register.  Friends are welcome to come.  If you do not have an LCR release form filled out here is a link to print one off (just print page 2) https://lcrmarion.org/wp-content/uploads/2011/07/2011-12-Registration-Forms.pdf.  You must have this filled out and be paid in full before leaving on Saturday.

We will meet at the church at 12:45pm on Saturday and will return to the church for pickup by 11:30am on Sunday morning.  We are in need of adult drivers/leaders for the retreat.  If you would be able to drive but would not prefer to spend the night that is fine.  Please email carterm@lcrmarion.org if you can help out.

New Construction at EWALU

Construction on the new lodge and the existing Walnut cabins has been underway at EWALU this fall. Whenever you donate to the Building Fund at Resurrection a tithe (10%) is shared with other ministries. One of those ministries is the building project going on at EWALU. The photo above shows the new lodge that will be part of the Walnut complex. This lodge is designed to be a self contained unit for retreat groups that will include sleeping rooms, bathrooms, a kitchenette and a meeting room.

EWALU-Walnut-Lodge

Walnut Lodge finally becomes a real “lodge” as foundations are added for two bunk rooms and two adult lodging spaces (similar to those in Hickory Lodge). The central meeting area upstairs will be remodeled, with an improved kitchenette. Shower rooms in the basement will have an indoor stairway from the bed/bunk rooms. All this will make Walnut Lodge self-contained and perfect for groups of any age all year long.

EWALU-Walnut-1

Walnut 1, is shown above with the old windows and interior removed (10-16-09). Each cabin will soon have a new enlarged roof to cover the restroom and porch. During construction, we are staying as “green” as possible by reusing and recycling, in addition to focusing on big improvements in energy efficiency. For example, rafters from some of the old cabin roofs were saved and will be reused to complete a picnic shelter in the Ewalu Family Campground.

EWALU-Walnut-3

The whole Walnut complex – including the brand new lodge – will be heated by geothermal power, installed earlier this year. Here, the new foundation at the “Walnut 3” cabin shows the new porch and restroom. picture taken 10-28-09
