Camping

Posted by on Apr 2, 2009 in community, fellowship, gathering | 3 comments

I won’t be around the blogosphere this weekend because we’re camping with the church. We’ve rented a couple of group camp sites on Falls Lake just north of Raleigh. Some of us will be spending Friday and Saturday nights at the camp sites. Some will be spending on Saturday night at the camp sites. Others will be coming during the day on Saturday and/or Sunday. We’re even having our weekly church meeting at the camp site Sunday morning.

This is the fourth (I think) time that we’ve been camping together as a church. We get to spend an entire weekend together: setting up camp together, cooking and eating three meals each day together, hanging out together, sitting around the campfire together singing and talking and telling stories.

I don’t understand why more churches don’t do this together.

By the way, if you’re in the Raleigh area and want to hang out with us, we are in Rolling View park, group campsites number 3 and 4. We’ll start setting up camp sometime early Friday evening, and break camp early Saturday evening. There is currently no charge to enter the park, so you will not have to pay to come visit us.

    camping?!? it’s still been in the 20’s overnight here and have lots of snow still on the ground; no camping for us mainers just yet.

    by the way the whole thing seems a bit hippie-ish to me. sitting around the campfire singing “Kumbaya” and talking about your feelings. have fun with that. no seriously that sounds like a good time of fellowship.

    that sounds so fun! I will def. plan this for our church! :)

    hey I wanted to ask you if you knew anything about different discipleship ‘programs’ / curriculum that different denominations do (like the wesleyans have this discipleship program called Injoy)…. I guess what I’m asking is.. what are some (more) of your thoughts on discipleship?

    :)
