Serving & Giving
We hope you are encouraged as we are to consider how the Lord has led His faithful servants to selflessly labor throughout the past century. Please pray with us that this labor would continue at Greenwood with the Lord’s leadership until His return!
If you are willing and able to serve the Lord at Greenwood Hills this summer, please fill out a short form indicating your availability.
All saints serving before, during and after all events are volunteers serving as to the Lord. Would you prayerfully consider ministering to them financially? You may of course give a gift directly to a serving saint, or gifts to the volunteers can be placed in one of the ministry boxes in the Inn or Dining Room. If you want to minister to a specific volunteer, please specify that with your gift. No GWH board member or board member’s spouse will receive gifts through this process. Please also pray about joining in the Lord’s work here in some way yourself! Contact GWHExecCommittee@gmail.com about opportunities.

How Can I Serve?
Learn more about the current vision and needs at Greenwood
In this video, board members describe a new approach at Greenwood Hills, which includes the use of volunteers to carry on the work in many areas.
See the structure of the new service crews
To carry out this new vision, crews have been created, each under the leadership of a board member, that will take responsibility for different areas of service. The diagram below gives a high-level summary of the crew structure.

How Can I Give?
The work at Greenwood is carried out by volunteers, and the Lord provides through His saints for both one-time and recurring costs of running the camps and conferences. In an effort to make GWH programs affordable and available to all, registration fees only cover about half the cost operations; the remainder is funded by voluntary donations of individuals, families, and churches. If you’d like to be financially involved in the work at Greenwood, you can use the link below to give through Donorbox.
Give a one-time gift
You can specify a one-time gift in the amount of your choice, and if you like, you can specify what area you would like to donate to, including operating expenses, sponsoring a camper, or funding an ongoing project.
Set up a recurring monthly gift
Through Donorbox, you can also specify a donation to be given monthly. These are especially helpful for providing funds during offseason months when there is low or no income from registration, but bills must still be paid.
Help build for future generations
Providing gifts to this fund will allow GWH to generate a building fund to be used for such projects as a new recreation hall, new shower houses for the Family Cabins, building renovations and repairs to the Inn, Retreat Center, and Lodge, as well as other projects that will become necessary over time.
Give through Amazon
In addition to donations through Donorbox, there are several ways that you can contribute to the work at Greenwood as you shop on Amazon.
Amazon Wish List
GWH has a wish list set up for items that are needed on a regular basis, as well as items which would be helpful for the ministry here. Most of these items are not costly on their own, but the costs add up for us over time. If you’d like to contribute in this way, you can have items shipped directly to Greenwood Hills. Be sure to check back from time to time, as we will be updating the list as needs become known.
Amazon Smile Program
If you shop using Amazon Smile program (smile.amazon.com), and have selected Greenwood Hills as the donation recipient, Amazon donates a small percentage of all qualifying sales to Greenwood Hills.
All donations to Greenwood Hills, including material donations, are tax deductible.
