Luther Heights Capital Campaign
Dear Shepherd of the Valley members,
One of the finest ministries we provide for and benefit from is Luther Heights Bible Camp. Since its founding in the early 1950’s, Luther Heights has provided a setting and programs where Christ's love has been shared, where faith has been nurtured and where our children and families have been strengthened in faith. Our church has participated in the ministries of Luther Heights in many ways. Luther Heights has provided many diverse camping experiences for our youth and families, has employed many of our young members as staff and has provided staff to help lead our summer Vacation Bible School. The camp is a blessing and an asset to our community.
The beauty of the camp’s location has always attracted campers but for many years the camp has needed a new dining and kitchen facility. The camp has been unable to build until they had Forest Service approval. The Forest Service has now approved Luther Height’s master site plan and given the camp a small window of opportunity for construction. A special campaign, “Renewing The Legacy, Now,” has been undertaken to fund the new dining, kitchen and program facility. Please take a look at the enclosed brochure which shows the plans for the new facility and outlines the campaign goals. We pray that your commitment to ministry will encourage you to become involved as we learn more about this exciting opportunity in the weeks ahead.

We are all about “strengthening and encouraging relationships through prayer, scripture, worship and fellowship.” - Guiding Principle #4
