A Message to Our Friends about COVID-19


There is no doubt that COVID-19 (Coronavirus) has already had a major impact on your life. The impact may increase over the next month or more.

I wanted to take a moment to tell you how this is impacting Forest Springs, and what we are planning for in the months ahead.

To be responsible in helping to “flatten the curve,” we have cancelled all spring camp-sponsored events, including Crafting Retreat, Refresh, Heart to Heart and Golden Agers Day. We have also cancelled retreat and outdoor education groups through the end of April. We are using this closure as an opportunity to thoroughly clean our facilities and work on projects that can be most effectively done when camp is empty. We are trying to make the most of the situation.

While we can’t predict the future, we are preparing for a full season of summer ministry. We hope that by Memorial Day Family Camp, this pandemic will be on a downward trajectory. We know that there is a lot of uncertainty these days, so we will do our best to keep you updated on the status of our summer ministry.

In times like these, it is easy to give into fear, but I encourage you to use this time to draw near to God and increase your faith. This can be done through time in prayer and also in God’s word. As a way to help in this, we are making our full audio library available to you at no cost. You can find it here - https://forestsprings.us/media/audio.

We appreciate the calls and e-mails we’ve received expressing concern and offering prayer for the ministry. Keep praying as we continue to do our best to help advance God’s Kingdom in difficult times.

Thank you,

Pat Petkau
Executive Director
