Prepare to Meet Thy God.

There is an old saying that says “If you fail to plan, you plan to fail.” Our focus for this years annual “The Time & The Work” campmeeting will be “Preparation”. We will be focusing on the preparation for what is just ahead.

Said the angel, “Get ready, get ready, get ready. Ye will have to die a greater death to the world than ye have ever yet died.” I saw that there was a great work to do for them and but little time in which to do it. – {EW 64.1}

God wants us to be prepared physically, mentally and spiritually. What does that preparation look like practically? Join us for spirit-filled messages and workshops on Prayer, Bible study, mental health, agriculture, food preservation, natural remedies and more! It is our prayer that we all will be prepared to stand true to God during the final test and to be one with Christ in the crisis.

Prepare to meet thy God, O Israel. — Amos 4:12

June 30 – July 4

In this workshop you will learn all about how to start your garden, sustain your family and also bless your community. More importantly, you will learn how this is a means for the harmonious development of body, mind and soul.

Strengthening Prayer Life

Prayer is the breath of the soul, yet too often we go about our days suffering from want of communion with God. In this session you will learn ways to strengthen your prayer life on a day to day basis. 

Mental Wellness

Our minds are constantly under attack from numerous sides. Depression, anxiety, worry, fear and anger are more and more common— even amongst God’s people. This year, we will focus on tools in God’s Word that will empower us to win the battle over our minds. 

Food Preservation

Food preservation is a valuable skill we all should know. It is especially important in preparation for what’s coming ahead. In an hands-on way, you will learn the different methods available. (Bonus…It is also a great family activity that brings everyone together!)

How to Study the Bible

If you ever feel like sometimes the Bible seems hard to understand, dry, and hard to find answers, in this session you will walk away with a deeper knowledge on how to use your sword and you will also learn how to answer the most difficult questions about your faith.

Natural Remedies

God has given us countless herbs for healing. Learn all about “God’s Farmacy” and use these natural remedies for you, your family and others in need.
