  1. There are two weeks left in our summer for both Firwood and Fircreek. Pray for strength for the summer staff as they head down the stretch. Pray for endurance and increased motivation in the mission so that they will finish strong. And, as some staff leave early for school, pray that there will be enough fill-in (alumni) counselors to meet the needs.

 

  1. Pray for our campers. We are running at capacity for both programs. Pray that they will encounter Jesus through times with their counselors as well as with the speakers at Centerstage and J.A.M. time. Pray, too, for their safety these final two weeks.

 

  1. Decisions are in the process of being made for interns at The Firs this fall. One will be assigned primarily to Firwood, one to Fircreek and one to the Chalet. These are usually chosen from our best summer staff leaders. Pray for the right people to fill these roles and keep praying for them as they transition into these roles following the summer.

 

  1. We have a specific need to find tenants for the facilities across Cable St. used by the Discovery School these past nine years. In particular, we are hoping to partner with a like-minded non-profit who could use the Rutledge Building for their office or meeting space purposes. Please pray that we are able to connect soon with someone.

 

  1. Praise the Lord for Jon Epps and his willingness to join our staff team October 1. This has clearly been orchestrated by the Lord and we are excited by it. Pray for Jon and his family as they transition to this next phase in their lives. Pray for a good orientation time as Jon gets acclimated to his new responsibilities over our Firwood and Chalet ministries. Pray, too, for Steve Jagich as he continues in his role as Firwood Director under Jon – that they become a dynamic team.

 

  1. We have a number of financial needs as we head towards the final quarter of the year. Our budgeted revenue has taken a hit with the loss of the Discovery School revenue and some of our Firwood camps have come in a bit under budget for the summer. We also are in need of some money for our Campership Fund. Please pray for God’s provision. He has been faithful in this regard with unexpected donations and revenue sources in the past and we are confident He will continue to provide.

 

  1. We are looking to see some expansion to our After School Adventure program this fall. The Vanstone building will hopefully be added to our licensed facilities allowing for us to increase the number of school age children we serve. Pray for the licensing process and an increase in registrations that will allow us to grow.
