Music, Speakers Bless at Camp Meeting Despite New Format
Camp meeting this year, while shortened and divided because of the Auburn Adventist Academy fire last fall, was still a blessing to the Washington Conference. The largest of the weekend events was held in the Auburn Academy gymnasium on June 19.
The day was a full one with Ty Gibson presenting a powerful message on the love of God. Musical inspiration was brought by Greg Barron, Men of Kirkland and the Messengers, a male quartet from Walla Walla College (WWC). Chris Donovan, Marysville/Arlington District pastor, was ordained to the gospel ministry in one of the afternoon services.
The second weekend of camp meeting was held in Bremerton, Wash. Gibson was again the speaker and gave two different messages regarding the love of God. Music was given by musicians from WWC as well as by Barron.
Spanish members also held a special camp meeting attended by more than 750 people at Kirkland Adventist School.
Next year camp meeting will again be a full 10-day event held on the Auburn Academy campus.
