Beulah 2015 is under way. Following a significant and well-attended Prayer Covering service on Friday evening, Saturday saw a first-ever kid-focused afternoon with Rodzilla, a BBQ supper and a great fireworks display in the evening. Thanks to Brian and Deb McMillan for the fireworks – very much appreciated.
Yesterday the camp services began with excellent crowds, inspiring worship and effective and searching preaching from Dr Wayne Schmidt. Robin and Beth Churchill, newly appointed GP missionaries to Haiti presented a missions moment last evening. Their daughter has been raising funds for a laptop that she will need in her education. The Browns Flat Fellowship took this on as a project and we were able to present her with an Apple Mac Book Pro in the service – great celebration.
This week will be a great week. Don’t miss it. Check the web site for program features. Pray. Anticipate. Show up. Worth the effort.
Caton’s held their first camps of the season last week. Boys Adventure and Jr Teen Camp, with Mike Agrell and Nathan Maskery speaking. We exceeded last years opening week by roughly 40 campers and had 20 kids give their heart to the Lord!!
- Big News – Rev. Ryan Tarrow from East MI District has accepted the offer to serve as the first Satellite Pastor of the Upon This Rock initiative. He and his wife Gabrielle and their infant daughter Annalise will be relocating to the Avalon Peninsula in the months ahead and Ryan will be onsite at District Conference to present the vision for this launch. Both Pastor Stuart and Peter have worked very hard to bring this major next step in Upon This Rock to reality. More at District Conference. Well done and PTL. Onward and Upward!
- Doug Tatton received a near unanimous vote at West Head earlier this week and has accepted their invitation to become their pastor. He and Rose will move near the end of the calendar year. Welcome home.
- I was privileged this past week to represent our GS at the Wisconsin District Conference in Rice Lake, WI. Later in the week I presented the recommendation concerning the future development of The Wesleyan Church of Canada at the Central Canada District Conference held in Brockville, ON. They voted 120 – 1 in favour of the plan and we will discuss the matter at our District Conference on Thursday.
