Twelve pastoral families amounting to over 50 people gathered at Camp Riverside in Amherst, Wisconsin on Monday through Wednesday August 10-12 for the fifth annual Pastors’ Family Camp. Messages by myself, Pastor Dan Stertz, Dr. Lance Ketchum and Pastor Jim Stevens provided Bible challenges on the theme “Be strong in grace.” Dave and Char Fiedler did another great job of organizing and cooking delicious meals for all who were present. The new lodge building and existing cabins were excellent accommodations for the families’ housing. Key features of the camp where a singspiration and bonfire, volleyball, Frisbee golf tournament, late night table games and lots of great fellowship.
At this time we are working on dates for next year’s Pastors’ Family Camp at Camp Riverside. June 14-16, 2010 are the tentative dates and we will be confirming those dates soon. If you missed this year but want to attend, put those dates on your calendar and plan to come next year. We still have room for more pastoral families to participate in this wonderful annual break from pastoral ministry.
