'I Serve': Gladstone Camp Meeting 2020 Goes Online

It’s almost camp meeting time! Are you ready? Because of the pandemic restrictions, Gladstone Campground will be uncharacteristically quiet in July. Yet we are prayerfully anticipating a spiritual feast as we experience Gladstone Camp Meeting online together.

In this postpandemic world, our communities need us to show up as the hands and feet of Jesus more than ever. When we say it’s "All About Jesus," serving Him and serving others is a central part of the experience that's why we're using "I Serve" as our theme this year.

Jose Rojas will be our featured speaker. And you won’t want to miss the variety of seminars that will bring practical teaching on how to serve, witness and connect in today’s world. 

Is it going to be live? 

Yes! And no. Each evening program will happen live from the Holden Convention Center for worship and preaching with Jose Rojas. Throughout the day, attendees will experience a variety of programming including prerecorded segments and live interaction between online viewers and the hosts/speakers. While all content will be available at your convenience, the best experience will be to participate in real-time with hosts and presenters when programs premiere. 

Spanish Camp Meeting 

Yes, Spanish Camp Meeting will be happening. Check the website or the app for the latest information. 

Programming for kids? 

Preschool and elementary kids will have daily programing from the Rocky Railroad! They will learn more about Jesus through stories, songs and activities. Earliteens and youth will have special programming just for them also. Check the app for details.

Oregon Young Adults 

The Oregon Young Adults leadership team is planning a powerful online week of worship and connection. Young adults from Oregon and beyond will want to be a part of this journey.

While this year will be remembered for a long time for many reasons we'd rather not remember, let's also work to make it a year we'll remember for the creativity and the connections we kept alive and made with each other and with Jesus! We'll "see" you later this month at camp meeting.
