Greetings on these very, very HOT last days of July! These are the kind of days I wished my home had air conditioning.
I have just returned home from being at the Warner Camp Meeting in Grand Junction where Robin Wood was the evangelist. All of the services and conferences were great!
I planned to leave for Warner Camp Meeting, Saturday, July 18th, when I received a call telling me that my oldest grandson and his wife had just had their second child, a little girl this time, born at 4:34 p.m. with a lot of dark hair. All during the rest of the week I received TXT messages and pictures keeping me up-to-date! It was wonderful to be able to talk on my land line phone once I arrived home Friday evening.
In just a few days the St. Louis Camp Meeting will begin August 6th and going through the 14th. The WCG Cottage will be a good place to visit because the building is air conditioned and you can enjoy a cup of cold water. We would appreciate if any of you are able to bring any baked goods and fresh vegetables, etc. to be sold at the cottage during the week. Monday morning the 10th will be our Breakfast for a free will offering. Tuesday the 11th at 11:30 a.m. the Board of Directors will meet in the kitchen of the cottage for a meal and meeting. Wednesday the 12th at 9:00 a.m. will be the State Board/Brunch. This is for all local presidents or a representative, all committee members, and Board of Directors. At 3:15 p.m., that same day, we will have our Annual Auction with Rick Webb as our auctioneer. This is an activity that is enjoyed by the whole camp and is a lot of fun. If you have any nice items that you would be able to donate for the auction it would much appreciated!
I wish to encourage you to attend our One Day Fall Retreat on September 26th! This will be held at the Faith United Church of God in Grand Rapids, with Rev. Kristi Rhodes as our speaker. She pastors the Church of God in Cedar Springs. Sue Chrisom from the Farmington Hills Church of God will be our worship leader. You should be receiving a packet very soon giving you all the details you need.
Looking forward to seeing many of you at St. Louis Camp Meeting!
My love, Ann Hawkins, President
