Camp Meeting 2017 will be August 4 through August 13: Please come join us, whether as a visitor, CBA member, seeker, or traveler on the way! All are welcome to this special place of diverse Christian faith backgrounds.
Topics of discussion will include: • Characteristics of healthy community • Relationship growth and enrichment • The art of dialogue • In Celebrating diversity of giftedness In “Contemporary Christianity”, we will be reaching out to professionals who are knowledgeable on these and other issues. Dr. Jonathan Malone will lead us in “Nurturing a Diverse Community”, and sociologist Debra Welkley will help us “Unpack Our Invisible Knapsacks.”
Vespers will be meaningful and moving, as our brothers and sisters will share their stories of God’s faithfulness.
As with past years, morning yoga and other yoga opportunties throughout the week will be offered.
We also are adding a “hands-on” project this year: a team of volunteers will be travelling to Middletown on Wednesday to work with Gilead Community Services, an agency that has been serving individuals and families living with mental health needs since 1968.
And Bible Study each weekday morning will contintue to be a vital part of our Program, along with nightly worship and events.
The first Saturday night concert will feature the St. Luke's Steel Band from New Haven. This Christian group will present a variety of music genres with a Caribbean flair. You can hear some of their selections on their web site: www.stlukessteelband.com.
