Mission Week 2018

Work Week 2018

St. Paul UCC in Belleville has a long history of reaching out locally and around the country through mission trips. Since 2010, DuBois Center has been blessed to be their mission site on even-numbered years; on odd-numbered years they travel further afield. In 2014 they were joined by members of Christ UCC in Dupo, and the collaboration continues today. This year they have been joined by other friends of DuBois Center.

The priority projects for this week include: constructing and installing a new boat dock, upgrading the electric in the Rustic Village cabins, removing and replacing the siding on one side of the office, building changing stalls in the Beach House, and lots and lots of painting. Work began bright and early this morning and will continue through Friday! Please pray for the work team’s safety and hydration this week!

Volunteer NURSES Needed – Spend 3-6 Days at DuBois Center

Nurse Image

Share you skills and make a difference! Camp Nurses, most of whom are RNs, play a key role in providing safe and fun experiences during DuBois Center summer camps. Many find it to be a very rewarding opportunity for ministry; one that is quite different than their regular jobs. Camp nurses review camper medical forms, conduct health screenings, administer medications, and provide first aid, basic medical treatment and extra TLC for homesick campers.

The nurses’ living quarters are air-conditioned, and it’s not all work and no play. There is often time to sit back and read a good book, take a hike or dip your toes in the lake. For more information about this ministry opportunity, contact Shirley at dcinfo@DuBoisCenter.org or 618-787-2202.
