Service with Camp Restore, Detroit
Camp Restore, Detroit is located at and managed by historic Mount Calvary Lutheran Church and school in Detroit, Mich. and RAI Ministries, with the support of the Michigan District – LCMS.
“Our neighborhood is 75% unoccupied parcels. . . . But that means we are 25% occupied homes,” said Rev. John Carrier, pastor of Mount Calvary. “Many of those homeowners feel abandoned by their community… Our neighbors need to see Jesus’ presence for them in us! I am called to “Go” so I need to go where I can make a difference for Jesus in someone’s life. Here I can clearly make a difference for Jesus. The question commonly asked about Mount Calvary at our 90th Anniversary was, “Will we be here for a 95th?” Now, as we see this new ministry possibility the question has become, ‘What will we be celebrating at 100?"
“We have been blessed through the years with volunteers from across the country and with exceptional staff people in New Orleans to Restore Faith, Home, and Community,” said Rev. David Goodine, Executive Director of RAI Ministries. “We now have the chance to share what we’ve learned with folks who’ll be working together with people in the community to continue the work of restoring Detroit. As a native Michigander I eagerly await the
resulting changes that will take place in what I think of as one of the great cities in the US — Detroit!
