The New Ebenezer Retreat Center hosted four Servant Work Camps this summer. These work camps are designed to assist those in need such as senior citizens and those with disabilities. Each group spends one week working on the many projects that the retreat center sets up for them.

Margaret Moore, director of the Senior Citizens Center, helped find folks that needed assistance.

The four groups cleaned 16 yards, cut grass, repaired two screened in porches, used over 15 gallons painting handicap ramps, porches and trim, trimmed hedges, cleaned gutters, cut down trees, built a handicap ramp and sometimes just provided an ear for folks who don’t get many visitors.  

A unique mission this year was to build doghouses for The Restore. The doghouses are sold to raise money for other things that the Habitat for Humanity does. Work camp groups thanked George Groce of Habitat for setting up this project.

The groups were from four different churches: Prince of Peace Lutheran Church from Alpharetta; Zion Lutheran Church from Hickory, N.C.; Trinity Lutheran Church from Circleville, Ohio; and Christ The King Lutheran Church from Cary, N.C.
This was a truly rewarding experience for the workers and also the people that were helped.
