    Dear Camp Friends,

    Merry Christmas and Happy New Year! Thank you for your part in the good work God is doing at MVCSC!

    This year we hosted more campers in our regular season camps than last. In addition, hundreds more came during rentals and retreats. Our camps are growing and this year our Mission Trip attendance quadrupled! We plan to return to Bethany Christian Mission and Campton Christian Church in Eastern Kentucky in 2020. Please consider going with us, or volunteering at another one of our camps! Contact Jim for more information.

    With the number of pulpits and youth ministries in transition this year, we are hoping and praying that Church members and some of our old Deans are willing to step in and do camp! Please prayerfully consider if God is calling you to share your faith at Camp!

    MVCSC continues to support the Mission of the Church. This year we hosted and learned from The Dorce’ family of Blessing Hearts International in Haiti, and Andrew Hodges a Campus Minister from IUPUI. You can learn more at  You can keep up with the Dorce’s at

    The Spaghetti Dinner in April at the Crossroads Center was a great success and is planned again for April 2020. We’ll be sure to let you know in advance. We continued our Taco Salad Fundraiser and fall festivals. A hearty Thank You to Shelly and team for all they do! Please consider getting involved with these terrific opportunities.

    As always, we are committed to improving, and maintaining the camp. Next up is the chapel roof! Please consider a one-time gift designated “Chapel Roof.” We are still striving to retire the debt on the girl’s dorm. Many thanks to those who faithfully send funds designated “Girls Dorm Debt Reduction.”

    We are very grateful for your help in the past, present and future. God is our great provider; we are writing you to let you know of the opportunities to work alongside Him and be a blessing to these kids. If God is moving you to help, please keep MVCSC in mind for your giving, and always remember us in your prayers.

    Yours in Christ,
    Jim Dain
