The Free Store

The Free Store at Camp Christian is in need of some donations to replenish the Food Pantry and Blessing Box.
The most needed items right now are:

  • Canned goods such as Soup, Vegetables, Tuna and Chicken
  • Boxed potatoes, stuffing, hamburger helper and noodles
  • Peanut Butter
  • As well as personal care items like toilet paper, paper towels, shampoo, body wash, feminine products, deodorant, soaps, detergents, and sanitizers.

We have an Amazon wish list for the Free Store if you would be interested in making your donation that way. Items can be ordered and shipped directly to Camp Christian. The list can be viewed at https://a.co/f9hMkNQ. (Please note, this is just a simple way to streamline these types of donations. You can always purchase items from your local stores and/or take collections at your Congregations and then bring them to Camp Christian.)

You can also make monetary donations to The Free Store at Camp Christian at http://www.ccinoh.com/donation.aspx. Be sure to designate your donation to the Free Store at Camp Christian.

The Free Store at Camp Christian has served over 2,200 people in need over the last eleven years. It has been a meaningful ministry and much needed resource for folks in the surrounding area around Camp Christian. It is a blessing to be able to serve our community with this ministry. Thank you for your continued support of The Free Store at Camp Christian!

2021 Camp and Conference Survey

YOU are invited to complete the 2021 Ohio Camp & Conference Survey. The survey can be accessed at – https://forms.gle/taBVCWdB2gSaNU987

This survey is both for persons who have attended as well as those who have never attended an event at Camp Christian, the Christian Church in Ohio’s Regional Camp & Conference Center in Magnetic Springs, Ohio.

The first section will be broad and general questions that will help the Camp Christian Committee and the Regional Church Council make strategic and long-range decisions about the camp program and facilities.

The second section will be specific questions about this past summer’s Church Camp Program (2021).

The third section is for you to tell us a little about yourself if you are willing.

Please complete this survey by November 15, 2021

Renewal Initiative

As we plan for the new program year we invite you to participate in the 2021 Renewal Initiative. This will be an opportunity to both celebrate your gracious generosity in 2020 and to invite you to again give to support the mission and ministry of the Christian Church in Ohio and Camp Christian in 2021. Your gift will do two things: it will keep us on solid ground and it will move us forward confidently as we reimagine new ways of being Christ’s church at work and in witness to the world.

In 2020 you far exceeded expectations for the Renewal Initiative by giving $120,028.44 towards our initial goal of $75,000. Your gifts were designated:
• $20,523.75 towards the Regional Church Operating Expenses
• $55,334.69 towards the Camp Christian Operating Expenses
• $44,171.00 to where we needed it most

Abundant thanks go out to the 23 congregations, 65 clergy, and 156 laypersons who gave to the Renewal Initiative. You have made the ministry we are doing possible!

Our hope is to raise with the Renewal Initiative at least $100,000 this fall, and already you have given $34,450.00 toward this goal. Once again we are asking for your generosity through your prayers and financial support. We also hope to double the number of congregations (50), clergy (130), and laypersons (300) who support the ministry of the Regional Church through this effort.
