Victories Won in Cave Junction

The Cave Junction Church traditionally enjoys outdoor church at the Grayback Forestry Campground. This year the women's ministries committee, under the direction of Darlene Varney and Mondie Johnson, planned a special Bible treasure hunt for children, a Sabbath School class in the rustic amphitheater for adults, and a church service with Donna Griffith as the speaker. Griffith led the church in an interesting Bible study on the power of the Holy Spirit.

At the conclusion of the service, Verne Hyland, Cave Junction Church pastor, led baptismal candidates Sierra Atwood, Dorothy Homan, and Robert Cornett into the crystal clear mountain stream flowing through the campground. Members of the congregation and friendly campers stood on the bridge above and along the bank of the cold, rushing water singing, "Shall We Gather at the River" and "All to Jesus I Surrender." Many faces were wet with tears of joy as victories were won and prayers were answered!
