Thank you for your continued support of your outdoor ministry!

Caroline Furnace Sun Pavilion

You are invited to Help Finish the Solar Pavilion by making a gift to Caroline Furnace

We are thrilled to announce a major new addition to Caroline Furnace's grounds. Coming soon to the Lower Field — a new open-air pavilion powered by rooftop-solar! Thanks to the generosity of several major donors, we have raised half of the funds we need to construct the sun pavilion in time to use it for Summer Camp 2022.

To get the rest of the way, we need your help!

The solar panels on the pavilion's roof will also power our Farmhouse with renewable energy — letting us better steward God's creation, and advance our goal of "greening" Caroline Furnace's facilities.

Thank you for powering Caroline Furnace's future!

The Lord has provided us with wonderful gifts, that we may proclaim the gospel boldly through 

Caroline Furnace Lutheran Camp & Retreat Center.


Perhaps our most important gift as we seek to minister to a world in need is YOU. Your prayers and your partnership are essential to this ministry. We respectfully ask for your donations to support the incredible work done here. By providing, participating, and praying for Caroline Furnace, you share Christ's love with a world in need and provide a sacred space for all among God's beautiful creation.


We ask that you keep us in your prayers. We encourage you to participate in our programs and to bring groups here on retreat, to seek faith, education, and renewal here. We have a glorious corner of God's creation to call home, and this place helps all who come here to see and hear God more clearly - and to experience faith made tangible. Whether walking the prayer labyrinth alone, worshiping together around a campfire, or just having quality conversation among the trees, time on

retreat can truly transform community.

You are welcome here. We are one as the body of Christ, and we are so very blessed by your abundant generosity.

Peace & Blessings,                               

Caroline Furnace Staff & Board of Directors
