SHUMC’s Investment in Pinecliff is Growing

On April 28th and again on May 5, 2019, SHUMC took a special offering for Pinecliff Camp and Retreat Center. That offering was designated to defray the cost of planting trees at Pinecliff. We collected $1,315.00 towards that effort. Your generous donations exceeded our initial expectations and the cost of planting the trees by several hundred dollars. The excess has been applied towards buying a Golf/Utility Cart for Pinecliff, which will assist the camp caretaker in the performance of his duties and allow those campers who are less ambulatory to become more mobile and enjoy the camp more. We thank all those who donated to this cause and for their extreme generosity.

On May 9th through May 15, 2019, SHUMC planted thirty-three trees (31 Quaking Aspen and 2 Colorado Blue Spruce) at Pinecliff, installed deer block protection around them and a drip irrigation system to water them. This was a long and arduous project; however, the trees will add much beauty and provide needed shade to the RV Park Area at Pinecliff. We want to thank those dedicated individuals who worked on this project.

Hope for Haiti

Hope Village Global is a medical group that is planning a trip to Haiti in April 2019 in order to serve a village and orphanage there. On their last trip they provided medical care for over 800 people. 

For an upcoming trip, Hope Village Global is seeking donations of new, unopened over-the-counter medication. Sadly, the people that they serve in Haiti do not have resources to obtain basic medications, such as Tylenol or vitamins, for themselves. Parents have been known to feign illness to obtain medicine for their children.

For people willing to assist, the Missions Team has placed a basket in the Narthex to collect donated medicine. There are small handouts attached to the basket identifying what types of medication(s) are needed. We will be collecting donations through the first week in April, at which time the basket (or baskets!) will be delivered to Hope Village Global to support their medical outreach.
