Another WFBC Pastors’ Family Camp is history with over 60 attending including many pastors and their families. Pastors’ Family Camp is a relaxed venue allowing us to take time away from our ministries and visit with others who share our burden and passion for ministry. Despite the hot and humid weather we had a great time of fellowship around the preaching, fun and games, food and just sitting around talking. The theme of the messages was prayer and we were challenged with messages from four of our pastors.
Faith Baptist Church in Beloit under the leadership of Pastor Dan Stertz did a fine job of organizing, promoting and managing the camp schedule. Also Mary Stertz provided a special time for the children during the four message sessions. Pastor Mike Mayhak led the singing and coordinated the special music schedule. As in previous years Dave and Char Fiedler did a terrific job of planning and providing a delicious menu with the help of many hands.
Structured activities for the camp included volleyball, tubing, swimming, frisbee golf, a ladies craft time and table games. The Riverside Bible Conference has improved their facilities each year especially with the addition of a beautiful lodge a couple of years ago. The accommodations were great providing a pleasant camping experience for all. The reasonable cost and fine facilities makes it a great option for any of our pastors and their families to attend.
Next year’s camp will be August 8-10, 2011 at Riverside Bible Camp. Be sure to put the dates on your calendar and make plans to attend. Registration information will be sent out after the first of the new year, 2011. We hope to see you there!
