Hello All, Roxbury Camp Meeting 2017 is here!  We are looking forward with anticipation to what God wants to continue to do in our lives.  Our theme this year is “Stories”. We all have a story and a purpose in our lives. Christ has a plan for all of us. We’re excited to share our stories, and we hope you’ll be sharing yours with others – at the dinner table or at the campfire!

We will not be printing the Ripples this year, check back here for daily updates! You’ll want to know what God is doing all across the campground!

Friday Ripples

Friday Night Highlights.

  • A tree was uprooted outside the Tabernacle and into the road right at service time!
  • The rain started coming through the roof – over top of the sound booth! We put a canopy tent to protect the equipment!
  • We got to see God’s power shown to us in nature! It was an exciting first service and gave us all some good stories to tell!

Saturday Ripples

Saturday Highlights.

  • Camp has officially begun!!!
  • Ray Seilhammer spoke in the morning session about putting a Lamb on your shoulder. We should constantly be reaching out to people in need of our help. No matter how much or little we have, God can use us to help and bless others – the lonely, the elderly, the needy, the younger person who needs a mentor. Ray prayed that God would reveal these people in our lives.
  • For the Afternoon Session in the Tabernacle, the four Camp Meeting Directors – Jeremy Spear, John Geib, Mick Elder, and Steve Shetterly – sat on “the porch” and discussed 2 Chronicles

Whats Happening at Camp?

Teen Camp

Attendance: 58 morning, 50 Afternoon

This year’s speaker in the Senior High Camp is Mark Vincenti. In the morning session Mark spoke that God has given us some great coaches for life, and we find their stories and words in the Bible. Psalms 119:2 tells us there is joy in obeying God’s work and Proverbs 15:32 says, “Those who disregard discipline despise themselves, but the one who heeds correction gains understanding.” We are so privileged to have the Word of God to show us how to live.

In the Afternoon sessions, we broke into small groups to look at several passages and discuss why the Bible is so important. It was a great opportunity for us to get more in-depth and for the students to ask questions.

Jr. High Camp

Saturday Morning: 49 students, 16 adults
Saturday Afternoon: 56 students, 17 adults
We are excited about another year of camp here at Roxbury. We desire Jr camp to be fun, engaging and the best week of the year, but most importantly we want to create an atmosphere that allows all of us, both students and leaders, to encounter God in new and inspiring ways. 
This year we welcome Ablaze from Ohio Christian University to Roxbury again to help by leading worship and spending time with the middle schoolers. We are also blessed to have two others from OCU and Brady Smith, the Allegheny Conference Intern, to assist with the Jr camp. It’s exciting to welcome back Dwight Gehman and Allen Robinson to help lead Jr Camp once again and this year we are privileged to welcome Julie McFarland to our leadership team. She has helped the past few years, but this year was willing to join us for planning and leading Jr Camp. 
This morning we had a time of worship and then used the remainder of our time playing games to get to know each other to kick off our week together. In our afternoon session we introduced our theme for the week, Limitless. We are going to be exploring the limitless power available to all of us when we keep our eyes on Jesus. Allen Robinson shared from Matt. 14 where Peter stepped out of the boat to go to Jesus. He was distracted by things around him, but when he cried out to Jesus again he was saved from the raging sea. 
After Main Tab in the Hemlock Lounge, we met for Movie Night with great people, snacks, drinks and a funny movie. 

Sunbeam Camp

Average Attendance: 128
Sunbeam camp jumpstarted with a LOUD bang with lots of singing and cheering.  Our theme this year is “Campfire Stories”.  This morning we reviewed our Sunbeam rules, general camp rules and especially the bike rules.  We also introduced the staff and volunteers for this year.  We welcomed back many well known faces as well as a few new ones.
This afternoon we learned about the SPICE program.  We are excited to raise money to help the children in India and Nepal. So far we have raised $78.86 towards our goal of $6,000.  We had an average attendance of 128 people.

Sermon Notes.

Director Jeremy Spear brought a message this evening entitled ‘The Couch’. He spoke out of 1 Samuel chapter 3. Jeremy shared his own story with us – how he had a calling in the middle of the night at 8 years old to be a preacher, how he prayed with his mother on a couch. We all have stories. God has a plan for each of our lives. Jeremy stressed how important it is for us to seek out God’s plan for our lives. We shouldn’t let God’s voice become background noise – like his family never noticing the train that ran not far from their house. We should purposely focus on God’s voice, not letting anything distract us. Not technology. Not other people. Not even ministry should take the place of spending time with God and searching for His plan for our lives.

Saturday Menu.

Breakfast:  French Toast, Sausage, Hot/Cold cereal, and Cantaloup.

Lunch:  Oven Chicken, rice, corn on the cob, pears and cake

Dinner:  Meatball sub, mozzarella cheese, potato chips, fruit cocktail and a cookie

During the morning session, Mark posed the question: What do we want on our tombstone? In other words, what kind of legacy do we want to leave or what story do we want people to tell about us? He showed us corporate logos and the students immediately knew what the company was known for. What do people around us think about when they see us? What do you want them to think?

Things to remember are:

1. We are not going to live forever Psalm 90:12 says, “Teach us to number our days, that we may gain a heart of wisdom.” We need to make the most of the days we’re given.

2. If you know what you want the outcome of your life to be, then it will give you focus and drive your actions. John 4:31-34 tells us Paul’s focus was to “press on toward the goal to win the prize for which God has called me heavenward in Christ Jesus.” And in Romans 10:1 he states that his heart’s desire and prayer is that the Israelites may be saved.

3. We should set an example. Jesus wants to use us now. God placed us here to know Him and to tell others.

To help them think about what they want their legacy to be, they were given tombstone shaped paper and told to pray and then write what they want on their tombstone.

Jr. High Camp

Morning – 61
Afternoon – 56
In the morning session Ablaze lead us into a worshipful mindset through song and then Allen Robinson continued our time by sharing from God’s Word. The focus this morning was on looking like Christ. When people look at us do they see selfishness and self-centeredness or do they see Jesus. 
In our afternoon session we began once again with a time of worship through music with Ablaze and Allen read from Romans 8 how nothing can separate us from the love of God. It does not matter what we have done in our lives, Jesus is waiting beside us for us to turn to him. We have hope, not in what we have done, but in who He is. Respond to his calling today. Don’t wait.  
Tonight we welcome the Jr Campers to join in the camp bonfire and spend time with family and friends there. We were planning to have water games Monday afternoon, however we are watching the forecast and may change that to another day. We will announce in our afternoon session Monday what we will be doing once we know what the weather will be.  

Sunbeam 

Attendance today averaged 125. Our offering brought our total to $182.28.

Today we learned that each of us has a story. Our story is ours alone – although it is interconnected with our family and friends. Miss Nettie said we write our own story – we ARE the story. God wants to help be the author of our story with His still small voice.

This afternoon John Geib came to talk about the importance of bike safety. We heard the first part of our continuing story about Amy Carmichael. Amy was a missionary in India in the early 1900s. The first thing we learned from Amy was that God always hears and answers prayer. We will have more lessons from Amy later this week.

In the morning session, Mark shared his testimony. His main points were: 1. God is awesome. 2 Life is a gift. 3. Life gets messy. He gave Psalm 32 as a description of our lives. The first half of the chapter describes how messy life can be. From verse 7 on we get encouragement about what God can do to change us. Verse 7 says, “You are my hiding place; you will protect me from trouble and surround me with songs of deliverance.” Whatever the struggle is in our life, Jesus is strong enough to overcome it.

In the afternoon session, we met in small groups and talked about how we would live if we only had two years to live versus 85 years. What would we want to be remembered for and what kind of examples would we want to set. We also talked about how God can clean up the sin in our lives and what that means to us.

Jr. High Camp

Morning – 74 students
Afternoon –78 students
In our morning session we started with a fun game of Marshmallow Baseball that tested both the athletic prowess of those participating and their desire to hit a homerun and ignore the wellbeing of the others in the room. Ablaze then continued our time together with a time of worship and segued us into the lesson time with Allen Robinson. Allen read from Romans 6 and used tied down balloons to illustrate that many of us are being held back by our own desires or fears and when we seek God he cuts the string and allows us the freedom to be lifted up. Balloons that are simply filled with air sink, because they are filled on their own. Balloons filled with helium rise because they are filled with something better, helium. We are the same way, when we fill ourselves with our own things we sink, we cannot float higher. However, when we are filled with Christ we can rise and be closer to him.   
In our afternoon session we split into small groups to discuss the morning session and to dig deeper into how we can be filled by God and cut the ties of the things that hold us back.
We have changed our schedule for today and tomorrow since it has been raining today.  There will not be afternoon water games today, but that will be moved to Tuesday afternoon. Tonight after main Tab is over we will meet in Hemlock for games and time to hang out, and Tuesday we will not have a late night activity.

Sunbeam Camp

Our average attendance was 176. Our offering was $289.30! This brings our total to $471.58.

This morning we met two new Sunbeam helpers – Ken & Julie Smith or Mr and Miss Carnival as the kids know them. Then we heard the story of Jesus feeding the 5,000 and everyone received a treat of a biscuit and three Goldfish crackers.

This afternoon we met Mick Elder and he explained what his duties are at camp. We heard another chapter from the story of Amy Carmichael – we learned we don’t have to be adults to love Jesus or for Jesus to use us. Jesus loves childen too.

“We all have a story. We are living our story. We ARE the story!”

Sermon Summary.

Pastor Kevin Fetterhoff spoke this evening out of Matthew. He showed us in scripture how Jesus went everywhere – The Synagogues, fishing boats, homes, some places people didn’t think He ought to go, Zaccheus’ house, woman at the well, Matthew’s house with tax collectors and sinners. Jesus met their needs where they were. Jesus’s love is so powerful, he can change anyone. We had a moving service praying for our unsaved friends and family and for ourselves. Pastor Kevin asked if we knew Jesus. Because our friends don’t need a judge. They need Jesus!

Prayer is powerful and Pastor Kevin talked about ‘Prayer triplets’. 3 people, each with three unsaved people in their lives – 9 in total. Those three people pray for all 9 unsaved everyday and they meet 5 minutes on Sundays to pray. He shared about the amazing results he’s seen come from praying like this continuously. We should be praying for the unsaved people in our lives, and we should show them the love of Christ!

Monday Menu.

Breakfast:  Eggs/Sausage/Cheese sandwich, Hash Browns, Cereal, Cantaloupe

Lunch:  Ham Loaf, Parsley Potatoes, Green Beans, Watermelon, Cookie

Dinner:  Beef Barbeque, Salad with dressing, Tortilla chips, Applesauce, Cherry Cheesecake

In the morning session, Mark talked about ingredients. He had the students do a blind test of the ingredients in chocolate chip cookies. Afterwards, he commented that some of the ingredients were sweet and some were bitter. Likewise, our lives will have some sweet moments and some bitter times. He read the 14th chapter of Acts, which had examples of both. Sometimes we think that when we walk with God everything should be sweet. But the reality is that’s not always the case. There will be better times. But God can use those times for good. Sometimes you can feel dried out, like what the salt, baking soda and baking powder does. There there are sweet times like the brown sugar, sugar, butter, and chocolate chips. Some days are bitter like the vanilla extract. What we do is focus on the bitter because that’s all we see, but God knows all of the ingredients will come together and make something good – like a chocolate chip cookie! Romans 8:28 assures us that “We know that in all things God works for the good of those who love Him, who have been called according to His purpose.”

In the afternoon small group sessions, the students talked about the bitter and good times in their lives and how God worked during those times for the good and for His glory.

Jr. High Camp

Morning – 83 students
Afternoon – 81 students

This morning Brady Smith, the Allegheny Conference Summer intern, share about living limitlessly for God. He used the life of Paul to demonstrate being completely sold out to God. Are we serving Him with everything we have, or trying to hold something back?

In our afternoon session we split into small groups again for a discussion time. This gives us the opportunity to hear from more of the students and to pray for them more specifically. After our session we had a crazy time of water kickball on the tarps in the field.

Remember if you want to go roller skating with us on Thursday you must have a signed release form (available at the Byers Conference Center and at information).

Sunbeam Camp

Average attendance today was 185. Offering today was $212.73 – bringing our total to $684.31.

There was a lot of energy today in anticipation of the carnival that took place this afternoon. Everyone had a wonderful time. This morning we met Jeremy Spear. He explained what his job is here at camp and all year long. He also told us part of his story – how, at the age of eight, he heard God speaking to him in the middle of the night. He learned that we are never too young to hear from God. Just like our Bible story this morning. God spoke to Samuel as a young boy and called him to do a great work for God.

A reminder to the adults – tomorrow is Missions Day and the children are able to ask anyone around camp for donations, from sun up to sun down, to reach our goal of $6,000 for SPICE.

Sermon Summary.

Pastor Kevin spoke this evening in a wonderful message saying that grace will always be greater than sin. There is a God calling out to us. He loves you, no matter what you’ve done or where you’ve been. He will forgive you, wipe your slate clean, and set you free. Jesus can get down and dirty with you because His blood has already been there! Jesus knows everything about us, yet still loves us. “His power can make you what you ought to be!” We have freedom in Christ no matter what we’ve done. 1 John 1:9 says, “If we confess our sins, He is faithful and just, that He may forgive us our sins and might cleanse us from all unrighteousness.”

            “Grace will always be greater than sin
            Calvary has proven again and again
            No matter what you’ve done or where you’ve been
            Grace will always be greater than sin”

Wednesday Highlights.

  • Mike Beach spoke in the morning and afternoon Tabernacle sessions, stressing that we need to get out of the boat and become ‘Water Walkers’. We need to get out of our comfy, save lives and engage with the world around us – whether internationally or locally!
  • We got to hear from 7 people who will be deploying soon to their mission field – 5 internationally, 2 within the country!
  • We also got to hear updates from a number of our current missionaries already serving around the world! God is moving in great and powerful ways!

Teen Camp

The teens are strongly encouraged to join in the Tabernacle to hear about Missions and what God is doing around the world! There are no Teen Camp Activities today.

Jr. High Camp

Afternoon – 78 students 
The Jr Camp did not meet this morning so that everyone could be part of the morning session for Mission’s Day. In the afternoon we continued with our theme “Limitless” and Allen challenged us by asking what is holding us back? The same power that we read about in the Bible is available to Christ followers today. We are only limited by our unwillingness to submit to God. We can do all things through Christ who gives us strength. 
For our afternoon activity, we played slip-n-slide soccer and field hockey.
Reminder for Jr Campers – Thursday evening is our roller skating night. We will meet at the Byers Conference center at 6:15 pm and take a bus to Blue Mountain roller rink. We will return to camp around 8:30 pm for an ice cream social in Hemlock. It is free, unless you want snacks at the skating rink, but you must have a signed release form, they are available from information and in the Byers Conference center.  

Sunbeam Camp

What a day! All the excitement of collecting money for SPICE and waiting to hear if the boys or girls brought in more money made for a very energetic group! The children brought in a total of $3240.84!! The girls completely blew past the boys, bringing in $1,759.62 to the boys’ $1,481.22! This brings the grand total to $3,837.38. This will support 17 SPICE children for 1 year.

Today we met five missionaries serving all around the world. They shared some of the many different ways they share the story of Jesus with the people they live near. We also heard the third part of the story of Amy Carmichael. The lesson we learned from Amy is that the things that are eternal are important. God sees the little things we do and remembers them. Our Bible story was about the Slave girl and Naaman. Our second story was called “Stone Soup” – a great story that teaches all about sharing.

This afternoon the children participated in a fire drill. Unfortunately, this scared a few of our smaller kids and we apologize for that.

In the morning session Mark talked about spiritual vitality what it takes to be passionate and alive for Jesus. There’s no magic pill or easy button to developing spiritual vitality. Scripture says we are called to grow in Jesus. How can we grow our spiritual vitality? It’s not about performance, it’s about relationship. 1. Spend time WITH God. Carve out time to spend with God every day. 2. Temerament, or how he wired us. If you love music, then spend time with God listening, playing, or creating worship music. Some like art, poetry, exercise, dance, getting out in nature, reading, crafts or whatever your unique temperament is. While doing these things, connect with God. 3. We need to trust the process. Psalm 1 says a relationship with God is like a tree, it grows over time. We may not always feel close to God, but if we continue to nurture it, it will keep growing. In the afternoon session, we met in small groups and talked more about how to make our spiritual life stronger.

Jr. High Camp

Morning – 79 students
Afternoon – 67 students

We talked this morning about Impact. As we look at the Limitless power of God available through us when we live for Christ without abandon, we can make an impact on those around us. We say we want to live for God, but do we mean it? Are we willing to move to a new country for Christ? To sacrifice comfort, or even safety, for the cause of Jesus? What impact have you made on someone else this week? Did you point someone towards Christ? Or did you draw attention away from God this week? What impact are you making on people around you? 

In the afternoon, Ablaze shared a little about Ohio Christian University and gave out some OCU swag. They then led us into a time of worship. Hearing the Jr Campers sing “What a beautiful name it is” while the band played softly was encouraging to see young people praising God’s name. We then split into small groups to discuss this morning’s lesson and explore how we can live it out each day.

Sunbeam Camp

Average attendance: 160

This morning our special visitor was August Meyers and her Seeing Eye dog, Xandy. She told us about service dogs and how they help people with special needs. She also told us that is never safe pet a dog without asking the owner first.

This afternoon we heard the fourth chapter about Amy Carmichael. She learned that God will always provide but not always in the way we expect.

Offering today was $506.88 bringing our total to $4344.26. We now can provide for 19 children. We still need $1655.74 to reach our goal of $6,000.

In the morning session Mark told the story of Jehoshaphat found in 2 Chronicles 20. When facing a difficult battle, there were things Jehoshaphat could have done, but he chose to pray first. His prayer, found in verses 6-12 give us a good example of how we should pray. We then went through the parts of the prayer together: Praise, confession, thanksgiving, and supplication (asking God to supply our needs).

Afterwards the students went individually to any of 6 different prayer stations, which provided them an opportunity to spend time with God. In addition to praying with an adult leader, the students could do as many of the following as they needed to: 1. Confess by writing their sins on a car windshield. 2. Write things they are thankful for on the “Board of Thanks” 3. Use play dough to create something 4. Write the lies from Satan that they have been believing on a piece of paper and then put it into an Ammunition box to be destroyed. 5. Write praises to God on the Board of Praise” When we face challenges in our life, we have to remember to go to God first.

Morning Attendance – 76 students
Afternoon Attendance – 66 students
In our morning session Ablaze lead us in a time of worship and then Allen continued to help us better understand what a life lived limitlessly for God can look like. He used mountain climbing as an example for how God holds onto us. You don’t use a weak anchor point to anchor to because you know that if you fell it would give way, but we use a strong anchor so that we can be confident that if we slip and fall it won’t give way. Don’t anchor yourself to other people, possessions, or anything else, but tie yourself to God. Even better than that though is the fact that if we tie ourselves to God, not only is he our anchor, but when we stumble he is there to hold us up and help us through.  
In the afternoon, Ablaze lead our worship time and Allen continued our theme, Limitless, by sharing how there are many things in life that can distract us from where God is leading us. Stay focused on God so that you are not distracted from where God is directing us.

Sunbeam Camp

Average attendance: 120 kids

Today we practiced over and over for our presentation in the main tabernacle tomorrow morning. The kids look forward to this every year.

Our Bible story this morning was about Jesus and why he came to earth. He came to save us from sin and so we can spend eternity with Him in heaven. After leading the children in prayer, we had thirteen children come forward to follow God’s call on their lives!!

This afternoon we heard the final chapter of Amy Carmichael. The lesson today was that God protects us even when we aren’t aware of it.

Offering: Boys – $94.54 Girls – $84.48. We still need $1476.72 to reach our goal.

Nursery

The nursery children have been learning the Fruit of the Spirit through a fun song and Bible Stories. It’s amazing what there little hearts and minds can learn in a week.  Over 100 different children have come into the nursery and have been enjoying the new toys the girls purchased through their lemon-aid stand. Our largest attendance of 53 was on Friday morning.  We have been averaging 40 children in the morning, 20 in the afternoon and 35 in the evening. Thank you to all the parents and volunteers that helped make the nursery a safe and fun place for the children.

In the morning session Mark talked about the danger of sin. Isaiah 64:6 says, “We are all infected and impure with sin. When we display our righteous deeds, they are nothing but filthy rags. Like autumn leaves, we wither and fall, and our sins sweep us away like the wind.” When we are infected with sin, everything we do is tainted. It messes up everything we do. He gave the illustration of when his son was at the beach and got sand in his eyes. He tried to get the sand out of his eyes but made it worse because of the sand on his hands. Mark needed to take him to wash it off. Likewise, we can’t get rid of the sin in our lives by ourselves. We need God to wash out the sin. 1 John 1:8-9 says we are deceived if we claim to be without sin, but if we confess our sins, God will forgive and purify us.

Using the windshield that students had written their sins on in yellow highlighter at yesterday’s prayer station, Mark showed how you couldn’t see the words in normal light, but when we turned off all the lights and shone a black light on it, the sins showed up. Likewise, Jesus will show us the sin in our life. Mark took a rag and wiped away the words, while talking about how Jesus’ suffering and death on the cross wiped away our sins. The students were then given a chance to pray and renew their vows to Jesus.

In the afternoon session, Seven led us in a concert and time of worship.

Jr. High Camp

Morning Attendance – 54 students
Afternoon Attendance – 45 students
Today in both of our sessions Allen spoke on how sin can entangle us and prevent us from living the free life God is offering when we seek him.  2 Cor. 2:11 – tells us not to let the devil outwit us. To do this we must stay close to God. 
This week’s theme has been Limitless and our theme verse has been Philippians 4:13 – I can do all this through him who gives me strength. However, so often we live defeated lives, and focus on the things holding us back. The devil loves when we say “I can’t” but God is telling each of us – “You can, with my help”. Don’t be stuck in sin, but give it to God. Ask him to help you out of whatever is keeping you from living a life without limits for God. 
Life lived wholeheartedly for God is Limitless. 
We will have the closing session for Jr Camp at 10 am on Sunday. Thanks for a great week at Roxbury.
