A Blessing to Serve
What a blessing it was for me to serve as the nurse for a week at Inspiration Point this summer! Having observed for years the growing conviction of faith and the blossoming spiritual life of students who have returned home from camp, it was quite another experience to be part of the day-to-day activities and see firsthand the foundation on which much of this growth occurs. To see staff and campers put into practice the disciplines of reading the Bible, studying it, memorizing it, and sharing the good news with others, was an absolute joy to observe.
I praise God for places like Inspiration Point which have been planting, watering, nurturing, refreshing, and maturing relationships with Jesus for many years! May God continue to richly bless the ministry of Inspiration Point. - Juanita Klukken
Give to the Max Day
Mark your calendars! GiveMN’s Give to the Max Day is scheduled for Thursday, November 17. Launched in 2009 by Minnesota Community Foundation, GiveMN is supported by many generous foundation and corporate partners from around the state, as well as generous individuals. “Give to the Max Day has become a Minnesota giving holiday,” said Jake Blumberg, executive director of GiveMN. “For 24 hours, thousands of organizations and individuals rally to support amazing and important causes that make Minnesota a great place to live, work and play.”
Inspiration Point will once again participate in this year’s Give to the Max Day event. You can find our giving page by visiting GiveMN.org and searching for “Inspiration Point” under “Find a Cause.”
As our site has grown over the last few years, we are in need of a new riding lawn mower and additional grounds keeping equipment. Our goal for Give to the Max Day is $9,000. You can start scheduling your gift for Give to the Max Day on November 1.
Get Away. Get Life. Get to The Point.
