Donate to Pell Lodge Renovation

It is the Board's opinion that Epworth provides the facilities and location that best suits the Chrysalis-Emmaus weekends. Epworth has plans for future building and construction projects. Unfortunately these plans do not include a much-needed renovation of Pell Lodge. Pell was built in 1943 and has served as a conference center since. The North Indiana Methodist Conference has been involved with Epworth since 1922.

As many of you know, Pell has a significant mold problem and other structural issues, which can be a risk to everyone. Pell has been a critical part of the Chrysalis-Emmaus weekends as a conference room and location for the closing of the weekend. It provides a central location and easy access for the pilgrims/caterpillars. It is also an ideal location to start the candlelight walk. The total estimate for this renovation is approximately $58,000.

We believe the completion of this project will serve NIEC and Epworth for many years to come. The NIEC Board is asking for support to raise funds for the Pell Lodge project.

We are also seeking trademen that may be interested in donating their time and talents for this renovation project.

For more information and giving opportunities, please visit Go to the following link to download and fill out a pledge card. All checks should be made out to Impact 2818 with Pell Lodge Project in the memo line.

Please contact Keving Ruch or Janey Prather for more information.

Thank you, Kevin Ruch, Community Lay Director

Please also refer to the following letter from the NIEC board regarding the fundraising effort.
