We at Holy Trinity are fortunate to have our own Bible Camp EWALU located just over an hour away west of Strawberry Point, Iowa. Camp EWALU is the focus of our April Special Appeal. As we approach summer, we would normally look forward to activities that renew and refresh us. Bible camp for youth is one of these very valuable opportunities for renewal and growth in faith. This year it is needed more than ever as many of our youth have been separated from school friends and activities and normal family life has been restricted. As a part of our church family, EWALU staff and administration will provide summer camp opportunities with some changes to keep everyone safe. Their website, ewalu.org is a good source of current information. Signing up to receive their newsletter (EWALU Rhythm) is a good way to get regular news about EWALU. April 19 is the deadline for reduced price early registration. Maintaining a Bible Camp to keep it available for the campers of today and years to come requires many resources. There are many opportunities to join workdays at camp to help with indoor and outdoor repair and maintenance projects. All of us can help by supporting them with our financial gifts. Please consider an extra gift to the Lord’s work by using the April special appeal envelope for EWALU. Online giving is also available on the website. Paul Dettmann for the Stewardship Committee
