Those over 70 1/2 years old can take advantage of the American Taxpayer Relief Act by using their mandatory distribution as an IRA Charitable contribution. This reduces taxable income and helps the charity to which it is given. Up to $100,000 may be donated using the mandatory distribution of an IRA account. The IRA Charitable contribution ends December 31, 2013. If you would care to help GWH via this program please contact Mike Stoudt for assistance.
We have several weekend retreats in January. Please review the Events section. You will have a blast.
All good things have to come to an end. This summer was brother Norm Wilson’s last summer in the Chatterbox. Norm and his wife, Jeannie, have faithfully served Greenwood in numerous capacities, but probably most noted was their service in the Chatterbox. For decades, they oversaw that beloved ministry. Hundreds and hundreds of campers and conference attendees enjoyed their hospitality. They will be remembered for their milk shakes, smiles, and fresh peach sundaes. Brother Norm also resigned from the Board in September. His insight and institutional memory will be missed. We all pray that Norm and Jeannie will enjoy this next phase and in life, and we know, that they aren’t really retiring from serving our Lord.
