Putting Faith into Action
No matter their age or abilities, volunteers make a huge differ
ence at Sullivan Hills Camp and Carol Joy Holling Camp, Conference & Retreat Center.“It is a fun atmosphere with friendly people,” Shelley Barber of Gretna shared.
Each year hundreds of people from across the state share their time and use their talents to help Nebraska Lutheran Outdoor Ministries (NLOM) prosper, flourish, and spread the love of Christ to others.
“Volunteering helps me to focus on someone or something other than myself and gives me a feeling of satisfaction,” Gretchen Hild of Norfolk added. “I did not realize all NLOM does, and by volunteering with them I have learned more about them.”
At NLOM, in places set apart, we live out faith in ways that show everyone they belong and are unconditionally loved by God.
By bringing in volunteers to help in so many ways, we are able to live out our mission of Faith: Alive!
“Since I’m a retired teacher, I enjoy helping with mailings,” Kris Gaebel of Ashland said. “I like working with others; I have met some new people, reacquainted with people from the past, and also worked with current friends.”
“My church’s ministry theme this year is ‘Hearts of Compassion Moved to Action,’ so following this theme, I came out to volunteer. I love to drive to this beautiful camp and enjoy God’s nature,” Kris continued.
It is a joy working with so many wonderful people sharing their gifts with our ministry.
“As each has received a gift, use it to serve one another, as good stewards of God’s varied grace.” -1 Peter 4:10.
