To those gathered to the precious Name of our Lord Jesus Christ elsewhere:
In our local assembly, we recently finished the books of first and second Thessalonians. The brethren in Thessalonica were reminded repeatedly of the Lord’s coming, and how much more is that reminder needed today! In 1 Thessalonians 1:10 it says “…to wait for His Son from heaven, whom He raised from the dead, even Jesus, which delivered us from the wrath to come.” In Jude it also says, “Keep yourselves in the love of God, looking for the mercy of our Lord Jesus Christ unto eternal life.” Given the pandemic over the last two years, the war that has broken out in eastern Europe, and in consideration of what Scripture says will be present in the last days, there is a keen sense that His coming must be very soon!
In light of the difficult times we are living in, we feel the need more than ever to be together with the Lord’s people enjoying time in the Word and strengthening the bonds of fellowship with all. After prayerful consideration, we trust we have the Lord’s mind inviting you to join us for special meetings in Carrollton, Ohio over the weekend of July 1st through July 3rd.
The meetings will begin, Lord willing, with prayer on Friday, July 1st at 3:00 pm and will continue through Lord’s Day afternoon, July 3rd. The conference location is Camp Muskingum, which is the same as in previous years. We are also planning to invite the young people to two days of activities and meetings, beginning July 3 immediately following the conference and concluding at lunch on July 5. A separate letter regarding the time for the young people is attached with this letter.
If you plan to attend, please register no later than June 17, either online at www.bibleconferenceregistration.com or alternatively by contacting Joe Smith (Email: JoeandRuth383@gmail.com, Phone: 330-603-8646) no later than June 17. If you prefer to stay in the local hotel rather than the camp dormitory, please indicate that when registering.
We would appreciate your prayers that the Lord Jesus would be magnified during our time together, that this time would be a special encouragement for all who attend, and for safety around the lake and those travelling. Lord willing, we look forward very much to seeing you in July if the Lord leaves us here.
Signed on behalf of those gathered to the Lord’s Name in Cuyahoga Falls:
