Summer Employment Opportunity
Chihowa is looking for a summer lifeguard and groundskeeper to live on site, provide lifeguard services for the resident camps, and assist the caretaker with various campground tasks such as mowing. Meals provided with the camps. Candidates must be at least 18 years old and possess lifeguard certifications. If interested please contact Board President Rollie Marolf.

Online Book Club
Start the new year by joining our online book club! The second book for the book club is Beyond Resistance: The Institutional Church Meets the Postmodern World by John Dorhauer, who in 2016 was the newly-elected General Minister and President of the United Church of Christ. Even if this book takes a few chapters for you to get excited about it, persevering will be worth your efforts! This book is a useful tool and resource for those who desire to share and serve in this “postmodern world.” Find the book club discussion on the Midlands Mission Center Facebook page. Locate the “search this group” box on the left of the page and type “book club” to find the posts. I’m excited to join you on this adventure! Thanks for joining me! ~ Shelly Twitchell
