Green Lake Work Party - Spring 2020
Greetings Green Lake Volunteers! I pray all is well and God is blessing you and yours.
This year’s spring work party will take place May 18-22, 2020. As in the past, check-in day will be Sunday. The first meal served will be Sunday dinner and the last meal served will be Thursday lunch. You will be on your own for meals not served at the conference center. As you know, work party participants will incur a partial cost for meals; lodging will continue to be provided at no cost. Meal cost information is contained on the attached registration form. Please indicate to GLCC staff what would be your first meal and last meal; in the event you are not going to stay the entire week. I am pleased to announce that a limited number of meal scholarships are available for those who desire to participate, but may not be able to incur the additional cost of meals. If you are interested in receiving one of these scholarships, please let me know as soon as possible. You can e-mail me at the address above, or give me a call at (304) 549-6220.
I have attached a registration form for the spring work week, which you can fax, e-mail, or mail to GLCC. You may also register by calling the GLCC at (920) 294-7230. Please remember, registration is limited and the registration deadline is March 17, 2020, so you should register at your earliest convenience.
Hear the Call Retreat
5:00 PM, Saturday, July 11 through 9:00 PM, Monday, July 13 (Central time)
Green Lake Conference Center, W2511 State Road 23, Green Lake, Wisconsin 54941
Hear the Call is for adults who are exploring a personal call to join God in global mission. Participants will interact with global servants and staff of International Ministries who will answer questions, address misconceptions and help attendees evaluate their call. Worship, inspirational messages, Bible study and personal reflection time all combine to make this a powerful discernment experience.
By the end of the weekend, participants will have a clear conception of the next steps in the process and a deeper understanding of the culture and missiology of International Ministries.

ABMen Return to Bacone College in 2020
ABMen USA are pleased to announce that we will resume our Bacone College Work Week in 2020. This year’s work week will be held June 7-13, 2020.
As you may know, Bacone College has a rich legacy as part of the American Baptist family. Bacone College was originally founded by Almon C. Bacone 140 years ago for the education of Native Americans according to Christian principles. The college has retained its Christian heritage but now focuses on the needs of Native American students in a multicultural setting. Christian principles are emphasized at Bacone in order to assist students in their growth toward wholeness.
