The Christian Church in the Upper Midwest
(Disciples of Christ)
Our Path Together...
A Plan for the Future Ministry of
The Christian Church (Disciples of Christ)
in the Upper Midwest
We have come so far in this incredible project!!!
With the Lois McKee Retreat House and Wolf Lake dedication this spring, our latest building projects will be put to use.
The McKee Retreat House is a beautiful facility with an inspiring view of the grounds and especially the new Wolf Lake. It is our hope to add one additional part to this cabin. Plans have been drawn up for a wrap-around deck, which will require about $50,000 to complete. It is our hope that we can come together again to create this fantastic addition.
Please be a part of this project by pledge a one-time or recurring donation! This is truly a Disciples Together project and ever gift of every size matters.
We began building Summer of 2013.
* We build only as money comes in (no loans, no debt).
* We build together in a Habitat for Humanity style with construction managers from churches.
*Attract more groups and ensure lower camp prices with more modern space.
*Inclusive and accessible for more people to attend.
*Design in phases so we can make successes along the way.
*Give all congregations a ministry in common.
