NORTH WEBSTER, Ind. – Thanks to the generous support of many donors to The Right Future Campaign, Fenstermacher Lodge construction began May 1 at Epworth Forest Conference and Retreat Center in North Webster. This second waterfront lodge is scheduled to be completed by Nov. 1.
As Duecker Lodge construction wraps up this month and Fenstermacher Lodge construction begins, the overlap in construction allows work crews and contractors to stay on site. This allows for continuity in materials and labor, which gives the campaign a savings of more than $25,000. Thank you to all of our generous donors for making these cost savings possible!
In order to maintain the best stewardship of our funds, The Right Future Campaign operates on a “cash in hand” construction basis. No loans have been taken out for this campaign. Campaign leaders have promised the Indiana Conference Council on Finance and Administration that the campaign will not begin construction on any building until it has at least 50 percent of its construction costs in hand with pledges for the remainder.
As of April 18, The Right Future Campaign has raised a total of $2.5 million with $1.5 million of that total being cash gifts. The Indiana Conference Right Future Campaign thanks all of the individuals who are committed to ensuring that youth will have a place to be transformed by Christ for generations to come. This would not be possible without them. For more details about The Right Future Campaign and to view a live video feed of the construction, please visit www.rightfuture.org.
Join with family, friends and the church on Saturday, June 4, at 10 a.m. for the Duecker Lodge Opening Ceremony here at Epworth Forest Conference and Retreat Center. Dixie boat rides will be available. Doing everything it takes to reach the future generations for Jesus Christ.
