Native American Camp Meeting In Fort Belknap

December 01, 2007 | Elmer Dow

Native American Camp Meeting 2007, on the Fort Belknap Reservation, featured two speakers and an evening panel discussion.

Jim Jenkins, Bozeman/Whitehall district pastor, presented "Him With Me or Me With Him?" during the Sabbath worship hour. Elmer E. Dow, Havre/Shelby/Fort Belknap district pastor, presented "Eating Dust or Walking Tall?" on Friday evening and "Walking With Jesus" on Sabbath afternoon.

A panel discussion Friday evening was the highlight of the weekend. Moderated by Dow, the panel included Carrie Ferguson, Fort Belknap Adventist School teacher; Milton Fish, Glendive/Sidney/Plentywood/Fort Peck district pastor; David Prest, Montana Conference trust services/church ministries/ministerial director; and George Walker, Fort Belknap Church treasurer. The insightful discussion focused on personal devotional life topics such as prayer, meditation and reading.

The weekend featured a variety of activities such as a fun run/walk on Friday afternoon and a jam session by the Havre-based group Strings of Praise on Sabbath afternoon.

A semi-trailer parked next to the church served as the site for a giveaway of used clothing and blankets provided by the Food Bank of Phillips County. The Montana Adventist Book Center set up displays Friday afternoon and Saturday night.
