As previously shared over the past few weeks in IMA, the DBA has had growing concern regarding the safety, community witness, and fiscal viability of offering even a scaled back version of Beulah Family Camp unless the border between Nova Scotia and New Brunswick was guaranteed to be open with enough advance notice for adequate preparation time. Although the active cases in NS are dropping at a favourable rate, the responsible window of decision has come to an end and the DBA has determined there will be no Beulah Family Camp 2021 (neither virtual nor in-person).
While this is disappointing news on many levels, Executive Director Tami Mutch-Ketch has a team prepping several “plus up” weekends all summer long for those with RV rentals and cottages. Summer@Beulah will have a full schedule for July and August of activities, guest preachers, and worship teams posted in the next couple of weeks @ www.beulahcamp.com/summer/.
Caton’s Island Director Dean Stephenson shared the following expression of appreciation in THIS FACEBOOK POST, “A huge thank you to Bruce Cheney and Dick Sears for taking two days of their time to construct a new deck for our mainland dock. It’s a beautiful thing to behold. Also thank you to Cooke Aquaculture for donating the float beneath the deck.”Atlantic District Camp Ministry would not survive a single year without the hundreds and hundreds of volunteer hours and generous financial gifts of countless friends of Riverside Wesleyan Camp, Caton’s Island, and Beulah Camp & Conference Center. You know who you are. And so do we. Thank you each and every one!!!
Congratulations to Rev. Dr. Erik (Ashley) Ireland (Kingswood University) as he was conferred on May 21st with a Doctorate of Ministry (Preaching & Leading) by Asbury Theological Seminary! His dissertation explored competency based education in ministerial preparation – a perfect fit for his leadership as the Director of Kingswood Extended.Dr. Ireland also serves on the Church Multiplication Advancement Team of The Wesleyan Church of Canada and has played an integral role in the development of the Mobilization Pipeline Cohort that will be offered this fall through Groundswell (Jon Wiest). We are blessed by the many ways he stewards Kingdom influence.
