Camp Meeting 2020 has started well. Friday evening we had worship with the Dubbeld Family. God’s spirit was in the place as they led us into His presence through song.
The schedule is different this year. There are only two meals per day. Brunch from 9:00 – 10:30 and Dinner from 4:00 – 5:30. Michelle and Cathy Jo are doing an excellent job feeding everyone amazing meals. Tonight is baked Chicken Quarters and a bunch of sides.
Also there are two services in the Main Tabernacle. 11 Am and 7 Pm. Alan Robinson, the BIC National Director is speaking in both services Saturday and Sunday Evening. Alan spoke in the morning session about 20/20 vision and “Focus.” He challenged us in part to get off of “auto” focus and to manually focus our thoughts on God’s direction for us. (Often we just go on autopilot and need to make ourselves focus on God’s will.)
Kids Camp today had a Chalk artist teach the kids through a chalk drawing in the morning and then taught the kids how to use chalk to draw with in the afternoon session. There were approx. 50 elementary kids in attendance.
