Treasure

Treasures, small and large, all matter.

We make a living by what we get. We make a life by what we give. Winston Churchill

Jesus looked up and saw the rich putting their gifts into the offering box, and he saw a poor widow put in two small copper coins. And he said, “Truly, I tell you, this poor widow has put in more than all of them. For they all contributed out of their abundance, but she out of her poverty put in all she had to live on. Luke 21:1-4

Do not neglect to do good and to share what you have, for such sacrifices are pleasing to God.
Hebrews 13:16

If love is the treasure, laughter is the key.
Yakov Smirnoff

No one has ever become poor by giving.
Anne Franke

At the end it’s not about what you have or even what you’ve accomplished. It’s about who you’ve lifted up, who you’ve made better. It’s about what you’ve given back. Denzel Washington

Remember that the happiest people are not those getting more, but those giving more.
H. Jackson Brown Jr.

Don’t judge each day by the harvest you reap, but by the seeds you plant.
Robert Louis Stevenson

Treasures, small and large, all matter. They are the bedrock that ensures N-Sid-Sen can continue to be a place of inspiration, community and connection for generations to come. You can be a part of that story.

Many choose to donate treasures. Past gifts include Ford Cabin, sailboats and quilts. While the thought behind a physical gift is always appreciated, sometimes different items are not needed and can actually become a burden. Furniture is a good example. Please check with the office when considering a gift of a physical item.

Five funds have been established to support enhance the ministry of N-Sid-Sen.

N-Sid-Sen General Support
Ongoing support is critical to the health and vitality of N-Sid-Sen. Gifts to the general fund allow us to address the most urgent current needs in a timely manner.

N-Sid-Sen Program Development
Help us continue to improve our camp and retreat programs. Training, staffing, curriculum, supplies and equipment are all key to this effort.

N-Sid-Sen Facilities
Help us continue to improve our facilities for you and our community. Upgrades to the cabins and lodges are needed to keep them current. A fully functional Health Center will allow us to better care for our campers.

N-Sid-Sen Waterfront
Due to the nature of the waterfront, facilities and equipment take a beating. Life jackets, water toys and safety equipment must be replaced and upgraded regularly. The docks need more tending than many other facilities. Enhanced training will help us to do an even better job with safety.

N-Sid-Sen Scholarship Fund
No one should be turned away for an inability to pay! Help ensure that everyone can experience the joy and community that is N-Sid-Sen.
