Lakeshore United Methodist Assembly - Lakeshore United Methodist Assembly offers 1,100 acres of woods, streams, and lakes; a quiet place that shouts the good news that all of us, young and old, are children of God. To compliment and support the ministry of the United Methodist Church, schools, and other non-profit groups, Lakeshore provides varied year round programming whether in comfortable cabins or wilderness tents. Some come to rest, to have fun, to grow in their understanding of environmental stewardship, to study and reflect, or, through experiential learning, to find God and each one's place in God's world. Our purpose is for all to know that they have been in the presence of God. (UPDATE: 9/21/08 If you do any of your shopping on the Internet, then you might want to use iGive.com . Through the use of their site, they will donate money to Lakeshore. All the proceeds we get will go to provide camperships to bring needy children and youth to camp. Check it out!)
