THE PASTOR'S PARAGRAPH TO THE CHUM FAMILY As I write this I am preparing for a weekend away (January 16-18) at my annual Christian men’s retreat which I helped launch back in 1970. This year is the 45 th year of this retreat, and a number of men from CHUM are joining me—along with about 35 men altogether—at John and Donna Szwast’s camp named Ingelby. I always look forward to this weekend. For 45 years I have been joining together on this winter weekend with Christians friends whom I’ve known since high school. Every year, too, many new men also join us for this time of Christian growth, fellowship and fun. It’s always one of the highlights of my year. Over the years the retreat has grown into a Christian Father and Son Retreat, so my two sons will also be joining me there. They, too, look forward to “The Retreat” each year, and always make the effort to attend--even when one of them lived outside the US. The other weekend to which I look forward each year is CHUM’s Men Retreat at Mount Asbury, which is coming up on March 20-22. This is an excellent time for men to get away together and be challenged to grow in our walks with Christ. I hope that you’re already making plans to join Pastors Jake, Jack, and me at the CHUM’s Men’s Retreat. Registration information is in your bulletin and you can sign-up out at the Men’s Table in the Gathering Space. ---Pastor Tom CHUM’s Weekly Prayer List is on tables at the back of the worship spaces and at the Welcome Center or go to www.camphillumc.org and follow the Prayer List link. Is there someone whose face you’ve missed in worship recently? - If so, please let the church office (737-5631) know. It’s also a good idea for you to reach out and let them know that you’ve missed them. * * * How you can Help * * * Panguma Scholarship Update -The last six months have been devastating for Sierra Leone. Prior to the viral outbreak, the efforts of many organizations, including the UMC Susquehanna Conference, were finally beginning to make a difference. Our non-profit partner for school scholarships, Operation Classroom, had some very difficult decisions to make regarding the funds we had raised for the current school year. Details for this scenario can be viewed on the church website, using the Team Panguma icon, or by logging in to http://teampanguma.org/about/team-2014-2/ . The good news is the schools are now scheduled to re-open on March 1! The importance of your financial support of the scholarship program cannot be overstated...thank you! Please join us as we pray for the people and the crisis situation in Sierra Leone. Family Promise—CHUM’s next opportunity to serve will be February 15-22.
