Newton UMC provides camping scholarships


With growing concern over the number of years it had been since children from Newton United Methodist Church had attended Camp Wesley Pines, the church decided to do something to reverse the trend.

A commitment to provide full scholarships for all children of the church who wanted to attend camp was made to the congregation. Five children applied for scholarships, and each of them attended Camp Wesley Pines. All they had to do was fill-out their registrations and show up at the appointed time.

Those attending camp for the first time were Dana Jones, Jacob Lurk, Seth McCormick, Lee Jones and Josh Mason.
