Tabernacle Terrace Initiative Presentation
On November 9th, the DBA unanimously approved Phase 1 of the Tabernacle Terrace project. As part of the BCCC 3-year strategic plan, the Beulah Session of the Camp Board is committed to enhancing Beulah campgrounds for the shared Kingdom mission to nurture spiritual growth and renewal.

  • Camp Board appointed project co-chairs, Dr. Shirley Mullen and Rev. Rob Trafton, are pictured in their presentation above. The intent is to recreate historical aspects of the Tabernacle area while drawing the focus to where we meet with the Lord. Accessible for all and inviting as the heart of Beulah, this area will serve as the central place for gathering of children, teens, and adults.

With the projected cost of $25,000 for Phase 1 fully funded by generous donors and Beulah Camp, work will begin in November and continue in the spring.  This will include the removal of Riverview along with initial aesthetic improvements such as restructuring the green space, and adding gardens, pathways, seating, and meeting areas which will include views of the river.

  • You are invited to attend a brief decommissioning service in the front of Riverview on Monday, November 20th at 1:00 p.m. This service will be recorded and shared on the BCCC website Weather permitting, the removal is scheduled to begin on Friday, November 24th. Please direct any inquiries to Rob Trafton at

Stay tuned for the November release of the NEW Beulah newsletter which will include details of the BCCC 3-year strategic plan, and suggestions for how you may become involved in the Kingdom work of camping ministry! CLICK HERE is you would like to subscribe directly to the Beulah newsletter.

140 Operation Christmas Child Boxes @ The Reach

The Reach (Andy Phillips) packed shoeboxes for Samaritan’s Purse Operation Christmas Child. Andy shared, “We packed 140 shoeboxes which represents an average of 980 lives that will have the chance to hear the Gospel message and respond and be discipled! Also, all this week our Main St, Jonesport location will be open as a drop off center for more shoeboxes from around the area.”

The River (Mark Soone) was blessed this Sunday as they were joined in Bangor, ME by Children’s Pastor Debbie Rooney of Framework (Jason Blaikie) with The Kings Messengers creative arts ministry. Mark shared, “It was a special family worship service. All of our children young and ‘old’ were blessed and had a blast!”

It’s great to see our Core Value of being Partnered in Ministry at work!

Missions Team to Guatemala

A team of 25 people from Kings (Brent Ingersoll) just returned from Guatemala in partnership with Impacto Ministries. The team served alongside Impacto in a variety of ways, including:

  • Happy Tummies, an after-school program that provides children with a nutritious meal, teaches good personal hygiene, provides a monthly doctor check-up, offers licensed teachers to tutor the children, and most of all, shares the Gospel of Jesus and His saving grace.

  • Abuelitos, a ministry for the elderly that provides a nutritious breakfast and a variety of exercises, and shares with them the love and saving grace of Jesus.

  • Medical clinics, providing people with care and medication that they otherwise could not afford.

  • Home visits, as we get to know our brothers and sisters who may live and worship differently than we do, but who belong to our same spiritual family.

  • Rev. Sheryl (Dwayne) York announced her resignation on Sunday from Amherst (Evan Oxner). Sheryl will continue to serve in her current role as Community Care Pastor until next summer as she and Dwayne prayerfully consider the Lord’s direction for their next Kingdom assignment.
November has been a special month at Deep Water (AJ Thomas). The first Sunday was a double celebration of the 16th Anniversary of Deep Water and the 1st Anniversary of the BLT Site. Both locations celebrated baptisms over last weekend.

BLT Site Pastors Timothy & McCaila Andrews shared, “This past Baptism Sunday was our largest attended service since we launched out in BLT (our second service in the past month that has been standing room only). It was a powerful and tangible representation of how the Spirit has been at work in our community since last October. Baptisms were such a fitting way to celebrate this marking moment of one year of meeting together.”

Ellen joins me in expressing heartfelt condolences on behalf of the Atlantic District for two of our ministerial families:

  • Where did we get the idea that we could grow into spiritual maturity without deeply embracing grief and loss? To reject them is to live only half of life with a spirituality marked by unreality. (Pete Scazzero)
  • If the devil can’t take you out, he will try to wear you out. Stop obsessing. Stop ruminating. Stop scheming. Stop rehashing. Stop analyzing. Stop worrying. Give it to God and go to sleep. Since God never slumbers nor sleeps, there’s no use both of you staying awake. (Christine Caine)
  • We may benefit from getting well acquainted with the man who is acquainted with many sorrows. (Chris Williams)
