Through God's grace, incredible things are happening at Camp Luther!  Below, find updates and information on Camp Luther and the Filled with the Spirit Campaign that we hope you'll find interesting and inspiring!

From the Campaign Chair

Dear Friends in Christ,

Camp Luther serves over 220 churches in the North Wisconsin District of the LCMS. These churches send children to youth camp, bring their confirmation kids to camp, send youth groups to winter retreats and to KBC, and have their own family retreats. That is just a few examples of how this wonderful ministry serves our district churches.

We are very blessed as a camp to have the support of our district leadership.  As we kicked off this Congregational Phase of the Filled with the Spirit Campaign, we knew it would be important to have the pastors who serve in our district know that the campaign is being supported by our district leadership.

In January, two letters were sent to all the pastors in the district to announce the beginning of the Congregational Phase. One letter was from President Dwayne Lueck and the other one was from me. In his letter, President Lueck shared that the district has a commitment of $50,000 to the campaign. He encouraged each congregation to explore how they can support this capital campaign. 

It is exciting to announce that already many churches have made a commitment to the campaign.  Redeemer, Marquette and  Peace, Eau Claire have both made a commitment of $100,000. Seven other churches are currently actively participating in the Campaign. We are so thankful for these churches stepping up in a leadership role in the Campaign.

The next few months will continue to be exciting as we see how other churches develop ways to make a commitment to the Filled with the Spirit Campaign. Some churches have Camp Luther Champions who are working with church staff to come up with a plan. How will your church be a part of it? Maybe you would like to be a Champion in your congregation. You could be instrumental in starting the conversation at your church.  

In Christ,

Anne "Draino" Hartman

What Is A Camp Luther Champion?

Camp Luther Champions are individuals who "champion"  Camp Luther and the Filled with the Spirit Campaign within the congregation, utilizing the resources provided in coordination with pastoral and congregational  leadership. 
These passionate individuals provide a vital link between Camp Luther and your congregation! Champions can be identified by the Pastor or other congregation leaders, or the staff at Camp Luther is glad to assist in finding that special individual in your congregation.
Champions will be invited to a special training retreat at camp or our staff will be glad to meet and provide one-on-one training about the Filled with the Spirit Campaign.
For more information contact Shelly "Indigo" Karolus, our Director of Donor Relations!

Thank you to Congregations of 
the North Wisconsin District!
WE GIVE THANKS  for all of the congregations  who are participating in the Congregational Phase of the Filled with the Spirit Campaign! We hope that soon, all congregations of our district will join in this incredible effort for their Camp Luther, the camp of the North Wisconsin District!
