It's Campmeeting Time 2012!
Pastor Ed Saunders and the members of South Union United Methodist Church invite you to the 140h Campmeeting at South Union Campground beginning Friday evening, July 20 through Wednesday, July 25.
Campmeeting takes us back to a simpler time; just good old-fashioned worship of God under the open arbor with hymns like, “When the Roll Is Called Up Yonder,” “Revive Us Again” and “Love Lifted Me.” Campmeeting affords us the opportunity to worship and to teach our children to worship in the same place our ancestors did, in the same way. We can go back to a single, uncomplicated time and place and always know that God is with us and He loves us.
Our preacher this year will be Rev. Raymond Rooney of Tupelo. Ray is a anointed herald of the Good News and will be preaching daily at 11:00 am and 7:30 pm. Buddy and Carol Smith will be the worship leaders along with Janees Garey who will be the pianist. Pray with us for a mighty outpouring of the manifest presence of the Holy Spirit during Campmeeting 2012.
There are 4 worship services each day - 8:00 & 11:00 am and 3:00 & 7:30 pm.
Special music is always a special feature Camp Meeting. Among those this year expected to minister in song at the evening services are:
- Friday - The Irvin Brothers
- Saturday - Southern Image Quartet
- Sunday - Joyful Noise Quartet
- Monday – Pam Gardner
- Tuesday – The Wells Brothers Quartet
Today many people believe the usefulness of the Campmeeting has passed. They consider it an old mode of operation that needs to be put to sleep. We strongly disagree. Instead of allowing the Campmeeting to die we should renew our efforts to bring it to new life. Far from being a dried relic of the past, Campmeetings still provide the opportunity for many people to hear the message of salvation and scriptural holiness.
