2020 will always be remembered on the Atlantic District as the first-ever (and hopefully the last!) virtual Beulah Family Camp (BFC). Here is our challenge to Atlantic churches – why not take a sabbath week from all your typical midweek online events following the first Sunday of July? Instead, encourage everyone in your church family to tune in for these three nights of inspiration, worship, and challenge. We’re all in this together!
There are a couple of ways we would love to have your participation:
2. What do I love most about Beulah Family Camp? We are asking friends of BFC to record a simple 10-20 second video on your preferred device (smart phone, iPad, etc.) and send it in on or before Monday, June 15th.
- You may choose to do this as a family, with some friends, or just go solo. We are looking for people of all ages so parents feel free to help your kids out as needed – or vice versa.
- Just answer that simple question and send it to Justin McGuigan on Facebook Messenger (Justin R Mcguigan) or Instagram PM (justinmcguigan) – if you use IG to send this, please record a video NOT using IG and then upload it to the Private Message or he will not be able to save it for editing purposes.
- Be creative, passionate, and specific – Justin will include as many of these as possible in segments of these services.

“Together” was broadcast last night on Pentecost Sunday with Wesleyan intercessors from more than 40 nations. This was perfectly time for focused prayer in the face of so much tragedy. Our General Superindendent passionately declared we will be a people who are Spirit-led and prayer-fed as we seek God’s hand to rebirth spiritual movement in our midst for Kingdom multiplication. This Prayer Guide will continue to be an excellent resource as we intercede to unleash and unlock God’s plan for The Wesleyan Church.
The tragic story of George Floyd has had immeasurable impact. Brent Ingersoll (Kings) provided excellent leadership on Friday night in THIS Facebook Live Podcast that was a remarkable expression of the raw emotion and the Biblical call to justice. Several voices from the Atlantic region were part of this discussion including powerful insight from Matthew Thomas (Deep Water). One of our well-known Wesleyan Pastors in Grand Rapids, MI, Troy Evans posted this incredibly intimate Facebook Post as he was processing his own emotion in the face of this evil act. These are days for the Church to live out the proclamation of Romans 12:21, “Do not be overcome by evil, but overcome evil with good.” (ESV)

- For Rich & Katie Thomas on the passing of his grandmother, Doris Thomas.
Our thoughts and prayers continue with you during these days.
- Injustice anywhere is a threat to justice everywhere. (Martin Luther King, Jr.)
- Race is not a card I play… it is a life I live. (Lennett Anderson)
- A loving God wants to redeem a broken world and we have been called to make things new! (NT Wright)
