Ed and Judy Sayre will be stepping down as our camp caretakers, effective next spring. The camp board thanks them for their years of service and for their heart for the camp. They have worked hard the last few years and are much appreciated.
With that said, the camp board will begin the process of searching for a new camp caretaker. Anyone interested in the position or wanting more information, should contact Jim Jordan at email@example.com.
Please be in prayer for the camp as we work through this transition!
Neshama is best characterized as progressive bluegrass/country (with Celtic overtones). Neshama's stunning melodies and high-energy instrumentals have captivated audiences of all ages.
"Neshama," the Hebrew word for "soul" is derived from the Genesis account of creation, when God breathed "neshama" into man, giving him life. Their unique style of music is certainly a breath of fresh air!
We are opening the campground for family camping this weekend. $25.00 per night with water and electric hook-up with Bathroom and shower facilities. Campfire pits and free firewood for each site. We are planning a community campfire event with dessert and coffee/hot chocolate served at the campfire by the tabernacle following the concert. It's going to be a beautiful weekend for all.
Come join us and take time to breathe in God's blessings with great music and fellowship under the canopy of God's creation and nature.
Please all 231-587-5620 to reserve a campsite or just to ask for more information.
