Mission Possible: The Pavilion Project
The campaign goal was met at the end of 2015! The goal was to raise $1,800,000. $400,000 would be for operations during the campaign and the rest for the new pavilion. God, through many of you, has made the mission possible. The mission of replacing the camp’s main building.
The fundraising goal of $1,400,000 was not enough to complete the building. To date the project cost has been almost $2M. Many supporters have contributed and we have paid for everything! Thanks to Bob’s Walk and a generous supporter, the final loan was paid off. The camp is again debt free!
The remaining objective is to complete the last bits of the project. We originally phased a few items to lessen the loan amount. Here’s the final details:

The Original Plan
Replace the old pavilion with a new one. And, in the replacement process, bring the new building up to current code and usage. Including for winter camp! It’s well under way. It’s a big project. It’s the largest project ever undertaken at Bethany Birches. Your mission, if you choose to accept it, is to find a way to contribute to the effort. We need money. We need skilled laborers. We need prayer and encouragement. Will you accept this mission and join in to be part of the community that helps to make Bethany Birches Mission Possible?
