Our Commitment to
Lakeside Manor

   The recent Lenten study, 40 Days of Community, challenged us to identify a group in town and do an outreach to that group. Thursday morning Caring and Sharing group chose Lakeside Manor. We have learned that this home fulfills a very specific need for seventeen people with mental illness who have no place else to go. It is a privately owned facility which receives NO government funding. It is run solely on the rent paid by the residents. There is a very real possibility that Lakeside may close at the end of June because there just is not enough money to run the home and do the upkeep and maintenance that all old houses require. This will leave the residents to be placed in facilities that are not as suitable as Lakeside or possibly homeless.

   The Thursday morning group has made a commitment to adopt the seventeen residents for as long as Lakeside remains open. This means we will help to provide snacks, holiday gifts and personal items. Another way we can help is to lower daily living expenses. We can do this by providing items needed to run a house of seventeen people – everyday household items.

    We are asking for our church family to help. If you feel led to join Thursday morning Caring and Sharing group in committing to help Lakeside you can do this when you shop for groceries. Every time you buy one of the items on the following list buy one for Lakeside. Bring it to the church and place it in the box in the foyer. 

   In Pastor Dave’s sermon he stated that if you can do the project on your own it’s not big enough. This project is a big one. Helping Lakeside remain open will require God’s help and the dedication of our church family.

   Jesus said, “The King will reply, ‘Truly I tell you, whatever you did for one of the least of these brothers and sisters of mine, you did for me.’”  Matt 25: 40

Dear Friends of Elmer UMC,


On behalf of the Handi*Camp full time staff,
I’d like to thank you for your generous help in
supplying a meal for our summer staff during
one of the weekends we had Camp at Malaga

After a very busy week, it would have been very
difficult for our full time staff to have to prepare
meals for those of our summer staff who stay for
the weekend.  But your generosity really took a load
off of us and allowed us to rest up for the coming
week of Camp.  We appreciate the time, effort and
expense you put into making sure we had food to
eat when our “regular” cooks were not on duty.

May the Lord bless you as you’ve been a blessing
to US.

Yours in Jesus,

Mark Amey
Assistant Director, Handi*Camp.
