Camping with the Church

Posted by on Sep 26, 2009 in community, fellowship, gathering | Comments Off

A few years ago, someone suggested that our church go camping together. Everyone had a great time! I wrote about it briefly in a post called “The House of God… The Church of the Living God… The Pillar and Support of the Truth.” (Yes, weird title, I know, but if you read the post you’ll understand why I chose that title.)

Well, in a few weeks, our church is going to camp together again. This will be our fourth or fifth time camping in the last three years. Some people will camp with us Friday night and Saturday night. Some will just camp one night. Some will come to the campsite during the day or at night to fellowship around the campfire. Many will join us for our weekly church meeting Sunday morning which will also be held around the campfire.

Camping together has always been a wonderful time to get to know one another better, to encourage one another in the Lord, to eat and play together, … to simply share life together for an entire weekend.

And, we’ve almost always had people join us who are not officially part of Messiah Baptist Church.

So, if you are interested, you are invited to join us on Falls Lake at B.W. Wells campground (site #2) from Friday, October 9 around 5:00 p.m. until Sunday, October 11 around 5:00 p.m. Our weekly church meeting will start around 10:30 a.m. Sunday morning at the same location. If you can join us, please let me know so that I can give you more detailed information (aknox [at] sebts [dot] edu).
