Three camps offer one-day seminars to jump-start local church hunger ministries

Local congregations are invited to attend any or all of these day-long seminars to learn more about starting hunger relief ministries in their communities:

Feeding Ministries
May 7, 2016 at Bear Creek Camp

Does your church want to start or maintain a feeding program such as a food pantry, a backpack ministry or another opportunity for children to receive food when the meals they get at school are unavailable to them? This seminar will provide training for these types of community outreach efforts.
Bear Creek Camp is located near Marianna, in the Southeast District.

Community Gardens
June 11, 2016 at Shoal Creek Camp

This seminar will train teams from local churches on how to start and maintain a community garden for the families of their local community.
Shoal Creek Camp is located near New Blaine, in the Northwest District.

Cooking Matters Training

Sept. 17, 2016 at Wayland Spring Camp

Teams from local churches will receive training on conducting Cooking Matters classes at their church for families in their community. Cooking Matters is a key component of the national No Kid Hungry campaign because it teaches participants how to cook healthy, affordable meals.
Wayland Spring Camp is located near Imboden, in the Northeast District.

Registration for each seminar should be online soon at www.arumc.org; check the website or contact director of camping ministries Michelle Moore, michelle.moore@arumc.org, for further information.
