    I’m in. This is Awesome!

    Our volunteer weekend has begun. The tent dismantling crew started at 45 min per tent and are now down to 18 min per tent. Others were out planting bulbs, cleaning campsites and putting away bikes. We started out with a bigger group from Jackson UMC but by dinner time Lansing UMC group out numbered Jackson by double. Anybody else coming from Jackson? We also have some from the North Muskegon Community UMC and a few others as well. What a beautiful day it was for serving this heavenly place. We have plenty of homemade chili and cornbread left over from dinner tonight.

    Come join us Saturday or please pray for the rain to stay away 🙏🏼
