The 199th annual Camp Meeting will feature a great variety of music nightly beginning at 6:30. Our speaker this year will be Micah Nicolaus. We will kick off Camp Meeting on Sunday August 5 with our local mission hands on project with Rise Against Hunger (formerly Stop Hunger Now). This will be our 3rd year in this partnership. We need volunteers at 3:00 to help set up and then we need about 80 people to help pack 10,152 meals in less than 2 hours. This is a great inter-generational project and we welcome all ages. The cost for one meal is 29 cents, so please bring a donation from yourself or your group (ex- $29 will pay for 100 meals!!). We will also be having our annual Youth Gathering on Sunday at 3:00 with Micah speaking to the youth and the Sulphur Springs praise band leading this time of youth worship.
