Camp and Scouting Sunday

Join us for Camp Sunday on February 10, 2019, when we will celebrate the upcoming camping season. Joel Coleman and Kristine Roberts of Camp Fontanelle will be with us.  We will also take a special offering for the Camp Fontanelle Branching Out Campaign. (There may be some s’mores and camp songs too!)

Also on February 10th, we will recognize any Boy Scouts in our Congregation – please wear your uniform!

Camp Fontanelle

Camp Fontanelle is just 30 minutes away and is a great way to get away, enjoy lots of great outdoors activities, and unplug.
The Great Plains Camps have incredible outreach to their communities and beyond. There are 5 camps within the Great Plans United Methodist Camp system. These camps are located in Fontanelle, NE; Chadron, NE; Cozad, NE; Ottawa, KS; and Arkansas City, KS.

Elkhorn Hills UMC has had a strong, long-time relationship with Camp Fontanelle and is the only church in the conference with 4 site council members within its membership. Camp Fontanelle . . . knowing YOU are part of God’s creation.

Check out the Camp Fontanelle website for more information.

SCOUTING SUNDAY

Scouting Sunday (formerly Boy Scout Sunday) is observed on the second Sunday in February.  Scouting Sunday offers an excellent opportunity for the local congregation to recognize the Scouting program, the Scouts, and their leaders as an integral and intentional part of the Church’s ministry.  The Commission on United Methodist Men, officially sponsors all scouting programs in The United Methodist Church.
