20 for 20: Generosity for the Next Generation

Join our 20 for 20 campaign by giving $20 monthly in 2020 and beyond. A solid foundation of regular giving allows us to shift our focus from basic operations to a focus of growth and better reflecting Christ's presence in and through Caroline Furnace.

As we reflect on this ministry, consider what $20 a month will support:

- The smile of a small explorer carrying the biggest hunk of slag

-The excitement of a young camper passing the swim test for the first time

-The anticipation of rising seventh graders moving up to the Sukkah Village

-The dedication of a college student to serve as a camp counselor

-The generosity of a young adult to budget for monthly giving

-Time together as a family while on retreat or at Family Camp 

-The commitment of a parent to bring their young children to Summer Camp

-The courage of a middle-aged adult to plan and lead a retreat

-Older alumni reflecting on a lifetime of faith, growth, and adventure

Thank you for your continued support of this ministry!

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

Recurring Donations

Did you know? You can set up scheduled donations to Caroline Furnace through Vanco,

our secure online giving engine.

This makes it easier for you when filing income taxes and helps us better project our operating budget. We provide options for quarterly, monthly or weekly giving. Recurring donations also reduce check writing for frequent donors, allow donations to continue uninterrupted during absences, allow donations to be spread out over time, and reduce administrative costs on our end. These can be paused or cancelled at any time, and can be done by both individuals and congregations. Most individual contributions are between $25 and $250.
