Small Lassen Creek Camp Meeting Delivers Great Blessings

Lassen Creek Camp Meeting began in 2002 in a National Forest camp ground. George White, then Lakeview (Ore.) pastor; Larry Cole, Lakeview head elder; and Bruce Blume, Alturas (Calif.) Adventist Church pastor; met and formed the idea.

"We felt we were little churches on the ‘High Desert', and we wanted to get together for some spiritual activities," says White. At first, they met a few times for hymn sings and other musical programs. From those initial meetings Lassen Creek Camp Meeting was born, and it has continued to grow.

Since the beginning, there have been notable Adventist speakers — the Oregon Conference president, Danny Shelton, Ty Gibson, Light Bearers Ministry revivalist, and C.A. Murray. Murray, 3ABN program director, was the keynote speaker in the recent Lassen Creek Camp Meeting in June.

People come from as far away as Coos Bay and Portland, Ore., Fallon, Nev., and Riverside Calif., for good old country fellowship. They bring motor homes, tents or sleep out under the stars. With lots of room, there is no need to reserve a place—just drive in, pick a spot and set up camp. There are no camping fees and everyone is welcome.
