Local Short-term Mission Trip Opportunity

highroad

 

 

October 4-6, 2013
Serve as a one-on-one buddy for a child (usually ages 9-16) with special needs
Camp Highroad, Middleburg, VA (about a 45 minute ride West off Rt. 50)
Given the nature of this camp experience for the participants, these are not medically fragile children, but rather higher functioning children with a diagnosis such as Autism or Aspergers.
Open to volunteers 16 years and older. Trained staff will be on the weekend, so no special skills are required just a willing and loving heart.
If interested contact Laura Shuping by clicking on this link.

JC Reigns at Arcola UMC Saturday Night, for Benefit Concert

Please join us on Saturday evening, 7:00 @ Arcola United Methodist Church for a benefit concert, supporting Camp Highroad.

The evening will be a mix of Christian Family music and video programs highlighting Camp Highroad and its efforts to offer a Christian camp again this summer to anyone who would like to attend.

Last year we were able to send 54 young people who might never have had that opportunity.

In advance, we appreciate your support for this wonderful cause and hope you will plan to join us in this endeavor. The event will be at Arcola UMC, but for Camp Highroad.

The address for the church is:
24757 Evergreen Mills Road, Dulles, VA.

Event will run from 7:00 until 8:30, “everyone is welcome”.
