March 23, 2020:
In accordance with the Executive Order given by Governor Whitmer on March 23rd, our office will be closed for the next three weeks. We continue to plan and prepare for our summer camps during this time, but we are doing our part to keep our employees, guests, and community safe and healthy by doing so remotely.
We believe that it is no coincidence that our 2020 summer theme is “THROUGH THE UNKNOWN”. This is certainly an unknown and unprecedented time, but we know with all certainty that God is in control now and always. We trust in His Peace, His Comfort, and His Plan for all of us. We hope you are keeping up with us on our social media as we continue to put out fun and exciting videos, clips, and other posts to make sure that we are all in connection with each other and supporting each one of our Portage Lake family members. Stay safe and please continue to pray over each of the lives that will be impacted for Christ this summer as well as praying for our local, state, and national government officials, healthcare workers, and all of those being affected during this time.
If you have any questions or need assistance in any way, please contact us via email at firstname.lastname@example.org.
The Staff at Portage Lake
March 13, 2020:
Portage Lake Family,
Like many of you, we have been keeping a close eye on the various cancellations and responses to the concerns over the new coronavirus COVID-19. At Portage Lake Bible Camp, the health and safety to our campers, families, staff, and community is always a top priority. We are continuing to monitor the developments, heeding the warnings, and following the guidelines put out by local, state, and national officials. Of course, this includes adding procedures that will mitigate potential impact of the virus on our guests and campers.
With that being said, our summer season is still almost three months away. This is a very fluid situation, but we are still preparing and moving forward with our summer camps as planned. We continue to pray that the Lord is already at work in each of our summer campers’ lives, and HE will continue to guide us THROUGH THE UNKNOWN as this unfolds.
We ask that you join with us in prayer over each of the lives that will be impacted for Christ this summer as well as praying for our local, state, national government officials, healthcare workers, and all of those affected.
If you have any questions, please feel free to contact us.
Gage Flanery- Associate Director
