Greetings:

 

Camp Meeting 2020 is just around the corner and what a challenging year it has been for us all.  We hope everyone has stayed healthy and well.  This year’s camp meeting will be different for sure as we have adjusted our normal schedule and activities. We apologize for getting this info out later than normal this year, but we are trying to make the best decisions possible for all concerned.  Please be in prayer for a safe Camp Meeting and that God’s message for us in these times be heard.

 

 We ask everyone to consider the following as you decide to attend or not this year.

 

  • If you have any under lying health heath issues and concerns, we ask that you consider not coming to this year’s session.

  • If you feel ill or have a fever, we ask that you not attend.

  • Please always practice social distancing of 6 feet while on the grounds.

  • We encourage everyone to wear masks.

  • At worship services we recommend sitting with other family members.

  • We will be marking off pews not to be used under the arbor to help with social distancing.

  • Please respect the personal space of all ministers, choirs and musicians after the services.  Please always practice social distancing.

  • We ask that you be considerate of everyone’s thoughts and opinions of the COVID 19 pandemic.

 

We want to share the following information about this year’s Camp Meeting.

 

  • We have decided to cancel our annual Kid’s Fun Day, Children Services, and Youth Services this year for safety reasons.  The morning Bible Study will also be canceled. We will have our nightly and weekend worship services.  The Big Singing and Bluegrass Singing is still on our schedule.   See the enclosed schedule of all services 2020.

  • The inside gates will close at 11:00 AM on Monday – July 27th for all services and events.

  • Enclosed you will find flyers concerning our Gospel Concerts.  Let your home church know of these events.  Help us spread the word by posting a flyer in a neighborhood business.

 

The trustees need everyone’s help in the following areas:

 

  • The annual Water Fight on the last Sunday will be canceled for this year.  We ask the parents and all our kids please help us with this.  Again, we want to encourage social distancing which can cannot be done during the water fight.

  • Tent rent and utilities will be $125.00 for 2020. Please mark the tent # you are paying for on your check. Please send us a contact phone number when paying your rent this year.  We need to update our files.  Please mail your tent rent or put in the offering plates at one of the services.  We will not be accepting checks at any of the trustees’ tents this year.  Please be considerate of our trustees and their families as we all practice social distancing.

 

  •  Jay Sigmon will be operating a golf cart in the evenings from 5:00PM – 11:00 PM beginning July 27th to help the elderly or handicapped get around.  If you need assistance, call Jay at 980-241-1151.

  • As always, no pets of any kind are allowed on the grounds.  We ask that you help us with this request for everyone’s protection.

  • The trustees realize parking is always difficult.  Please be considerate of other people when parking. There is no reserved parking.

  • The grounds inside the blacktop are smoke free and this includes vaping.

  • No bikes or skateboards are allowed on the grounds.

  • All tents must be equipped with an ABC fire extinguisher.

  • Each tent has an electrical plug in front.  These plugs are designed to be plugged in and turned clockwise to the 1:00 position.  Please check the plug at your tent.

  • Tents are designed to use only one breaker or fuse, a maximum of 20 amps/120 volts.  No electric hot water heaters or electric ovens are allowed.  These appliances are fire hazards, and they overload the campground’s electrical system.

  • Please clean out your tent and the area around your tent before Camp Meeting.  After Camp Meeting, remove all straw from your tent and haul it off the Campground property. If you don’t plan on attending this year’s Camp Meeting, let one of the trustees know and we will help find someone to rent your tent.

 

  • A professional lawn care service mows the arbor area. There is no need for individuals to mow behind the tents on the inside row, arbor side.

  • We also ask that no new trees be planted in the Arbor area.

  • We have installed a sprinkler system in the arbor area.  Please do not park between the inside gravel road and the arbor. This keeps the sprinkler heads from being damaged.

  • We also ask everyone to remove the battery out of your smoke detectors after Camp Meeting.  When the batteries get weak, they begin to chirp.  The noise is distracting during events held at other times of the year.

  • We are asking all tent owners to change out their bulbs to LED’s or CFL’s this year.  These are more energy efficient and do not put off as much heat.

  • Water and power is on now.

 

 

The trustees want to thank everyone for their help during the year to get ready for Camp Meeting.  We have lots of people come out and contribute in so many ways.  We also ask for everyone’s prayers for a successful and healthy Camp Meeting. Be sure to wash your hands, social distance 6 ft and wear a mask for yourself, your family, and all the other attendees of Camp Meeting this year.

 

To God be the glory in all we do at this year’s session.

 

Sincerely,

 The Trustees
