Rainbow Over Pioneer

Steven Atkins, Biology & Earth Science Teacher at Andrews Academy snapped this shot of a rainbow during a rainstorm on September 21. Steven says, "here at Pioneer we worship together and learn of so many spiritual treasures God wants to share with us." In turn he wanted to share the reminder of God's promise to us.

Michigan Advance Partners – Camp Au Sable

The funds given through Michigan Advance Partners or MAP are used all over the Michigan Conference in a variety of ways. One area of God's work here in the Michigan Conference, which receives a portion of every MAP dollar given, is beautiful Camp Au Sable.

Camp Au Sable is the Michigan conference youth camp located in Grayling, Michigan. Camp Au Sable has been used by God since 1948 to reach young people as well as adults. It is here on these 828.9 acres that thousands have met Jesus and have accepted Him as their personal savior. That is still the purpose of Camp Au Sable today.

Camp Au Sable operates as a summer camp for youth ages 8-18, where Jesus can be seen in activities such as horseback riding, swimming, nature study and much more. It is also a summer camping destination for entire families. During the remainder of the year Camp Au Sable is used for many church and school retreats as well as numerous conference events.

Part of the funding for this extensive evangelistic outreach is from your faithful, systematic gifts to Michigan Advance Partners. By returning a faithful tithe, giving 1% of your income to MAP, and giving to all aspects of God's work, God is able to multiply our meager offerings many times over and above what we could ever imagine.

God has blessed us with the opportunity to reach out to thousands of His people through the programs and facilities of Camp Au Sable. Your offerings today will continue to move God's work forward in this part of His vineyard and beyond. Thank you for your faithfulness and support of MAP here in the Michigan Conference.
