One-Day Camp Meeting in RMC Northeast »
Members of RMC’s NE district came together at the Sterling Church for a joint camp meeting on Sabbath, June 30. The group of at least 60 people in attendance came from Akron, Sterling, Fort Morgan, Yuma, and Holyoke churches. Only members of the seven-member Burlington Church, nearly three hours away by car, were not represented. The district has 235 church members.
Present to help celebrate this high day was RMC president Ed Barnett who presented the sermon, “Christ’s Robe of Righteousness for You.” A translator was provided for each of the ethnic groups represented, including speakers of Spanish and Kinyarwanda (from Rwanda).
“It was a high day,” expressed Pastor Don Lopes who, along with Rex Bell, helped organize the gathering.
Following the noon meal, a musical concert was presented by church members from each church represented, interspersed with reports on their mission endeavors, which included mailing Bible study cards, holding friendship activities, socials, and cooking classes. Eager to be involved, Sterling members are asking for more things to do and are taking Bible studies to the 50 people who have requested them as a result of the mailings.
“We plan to do this twice a year,” explained Lopes, “once in early summer and again in the fall.”
