Greetings Innabah Family!
 
Give thanks to the Lord, for he is good; his love endures forever (1 Chronicles 16:34)

Having lost over 85% of our projected income for 2020, but still having daily operating expenses, Innabah is doing everything possible to try to offset the escalating loss of income. Our year-round staff have taken salary reductions starting back in September, and some positions have been furloughed. As 2020 nears its conclusion, we continue to live in a world of uncertainty, although there seems to be a light at the end of the tunnel. None of us have ever been in a situation like this before, and we pray we never will be again. Our financial needs are going to stretch into the new year until we can see an increase from retreats happening again and summer camp registrations begin.

I am humbly asking our Innabah family, who call this revered place home, to prayerfully consider supporting this amazing ministry with a year-end financial contribution. We are anticipating a year-end deficit of approximately $30,000. Any donation amount, large or small, will help us weather these uncharted times and help us prepare for a brighter future. We believe there are, and are planning for, fantastic things for Innabah in 2021, and beyond!

However, we need your help more than ever to get there. Your partnership and your love for this ministry continues to humble us and bless us. Thank you, to each one of you, for your prayers, your presence, your financial gifts, and your faithfulness to God's word, as we walk together towards a happier future.

 
Give, and it will be given to you. Good measure, pressed down, shaken together, and running over, will be poured into your lap. For with the measure you use, it will be measured back to you (Luke 6:38)
Donate through Venmo
Donate through EPAUMC (credit card)
Donate through a Check: send to Camp Innabah, 712 Pughtown Road, Spring City, PA, 19475
Give thanks in all circumstances; for this is God's will for you in Christ Jesus (1 Thessalonians 5:18)

We hope you and your families find time during this Christmas season to reflect on our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ, and allow yourselves to remember the true meaning for this holy season. Amid all the turmoil and uncertainty, it has been difficult to truly focus on the good and all that God has blessed us with. We know this year has not been easy for anyone and we continue to pray for health and safety for you, your families, and your loved ones. We, along with many of you, have experienced some incredibly significant difficulties, many of which have resulted in severe financial loss.
  • spring retreat season cut abruptly short
  • summer camp was cancelled
  • two bad storms leaving many trees damaged and us without power for a total of 168 hours
  • the pool pump and motor needing to be replaced
  • fall/winter retreat season is non-existent

Through the difficult times, there has been many moments of happiness and successes that we continue to count our blessings for.
  • front of the camp store repainted by a scout troop
  • virtual campfire sing-a-long's with ALL of you
  • volunteers who helped keep our property maintained and cleaned up
  • an incredible Amazing Raise and t-shirt drive (both events raised over $31,000!!)
  • major timbering project completed to improve the overall safety and health of the Outpost area
  • Challenge Camp day camp and day retreats; Children and Youth day retreat; and Family weekends
  • small repairs and projects we haven't had time to work on (like a new exterior door on Webster!!)
  • most importantly....planning for the summer of 2021!!!!!
