Campmeeting May Be Over For Another Year But…

????????????????????????????????????

????????????????????????????????????

Campmeeting may be over for another year, but the indelible mark it consistently makes on the heart is obvious.  Those who attended, listened or watched electronically, surely sensed the urgency and sincerity – as I did – of those chosen to lift up Jesus to us.  For me, attending campmeeting is like a breath of fresh air and gives me new resolve to be confident in the Truth, be entirely transparent, and most importantly – through the power of the Holy Spirit – deal with tenderness and compassion to all I come in contact with.  Thanks to all those who make campmeeting happen!

Camp Meeting First Sabbath Afternoon

Hubert1-w400h550The Minnesota Conference of Seventh-day Adventist Department of Education and Children’s Ministries is presenting “Let the Children Come”; a unique program for Sabbath afternoon, June 13, 2015, at 3:30 PM in the camp meeting MWA auditorium. Following a concert consisting of young artists and testimonials, Hubert Cisneros, MAUC Director for Church and Youth Ministries, will be sharing the message, “Sing the Song Like I Do”, regarding the education and treatment of children. Parents, teachers and those who care deeply for children will not want to miss this pivotal message.

Jesus carefully instructed his disciples in the important work of ministry to children and their parents.

Children with JesusIn The Desire of Ages, pgs. 511-512, we find that some of the children who were brought to Jesus for His blessing had passed beyond the years of infancy to childhood and youth. Accordingly, we are having a child/youth dedication at the conclusion of the service for families who may have missed out on other opportunities to dedicate their children. Families are encouraged to bring their children of any age forward for this memorable service.

Camp Meeting Class – Communication by the Lens

Camera imageLearn how to take better pictures with any camera. We will talk about ways to do a better job of telling a story with your camera. Subjects covered will include getting a sharp picture, composition, getting a proper exposure, file formats, and how to submit pictures to The Northern Light and other publishers. This class is especially recommended for church communication secretaries, but will be equally useful for anyone who wants to improve their photography skills. We will start with very basic photography skills and move into a clear understanding of more advanced photography skills such as creative use of shutter speeds and F/stops, and ways to use this knowledge with even the most basic point and shoot cameras. The morning and afternoon sessions will not be the same. The morning session will be devoted to instruction while the afternoon session will focus on reviewing images taken by students and looking at ways to improve them for the next time you shoot.

Gospel Summit – Minneapolis

_MG_6896The Gospel Summit – May 25-30 2015 was hosted by the Kenyan Community Church in Brooklyn Center, MN. This Summit put emphasis on the power of the Gospel as seen in Jesus Christ. The speakers all used the theme passage of Hebrews 4, pointing the listeners to Jesus. They showed how legalism and even moralism in the Christian community has often eclipsed the Gospel. The speakers emphasized that when the Gospel is rightly understood, it will always point men and women to Christ and the cross. On the cross, God is telling mankind that they have been graciously accepted in Christ Jesus. Salvation was paid for in full and we can’t earn it by works.

_MG_6884The speakers that came and spoke were Dr. Israel Olaore and Pastors Jack Sequiera, Furman Fordham, Dustin Hall, David Fish, Karen Lewis, Dr Fred Bischoff, Drs. Ray and Ruth Forde, all of them pointed the congregation to the sweetness of the love of God. They painted the beauty of the character of Christ, saying that only the Gospel has the power to bring real joy in this life.

Gospel summit baptismThe Gospel Summit was attended by about 730 people. On Sabbath, May 30, 2015, 8 people declared their faith in Jesus Christ by joining the Seventh-day Adventist church through baptism. Indeed, we saw how when people drink from the well, studying the gospel and dwelling on Jesus, that men and women are released into a new life with a new passion for God and His work.

The Gospel given in light of the three angels’ message will bring results. Revelation 14:6-12 is a vision of God’s everlasting Gospel that will be preached in our time to all peoples of the world.
