To our brethren gathered to the precious Name of our Lord Jesus Christ elsewhere:
We are happy to announce that the brethren in Cuyahoga Falls, trusting we have the Lord’s mind, wish to invite you to join us for special meetings in Carrollton, Ohio over the weekend of July 2 through July 4.
We know the last year has been a trying time for many as a result of the global pandemic. Many have felt the lack of fellowship and the isolation caused by limited social interactions. We were reminded recently how the Israelites went into the wilderness and found no water, except the bitter waters of Marah. After Moses cried out, the Lord showed him a tree, and when Moses cast it into the waters, the waters were made sweet. Soon after this they were brought to an oasis of palm trees and water. As the pandemic drags on, and following this recent difficult ‘wilderness’ time, it is our desire that our time together would be a time of refreshment, rest, and nourishment for the Lord’s people. “And He said unto them, Come ye yourselves apart into a desert place, and rest a while” (Mark 6:31). “Take My yoke upon you, and learn of Me; for I am meek and lowly in heart: and ye shall find rest unto your souls” (Matthew 11:29).
The meetings will begin, Lord willing, with prayer on Friday, July 2, 2021 at 3:00 pm and will continue through Lord’s Day afternoon, July 4. 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 meetings and activities, beginning July 4 immediately following the conference and concluding at lunch on July 6. A separate letter regarding the time for the young people is attached with this letter.
It is unclear at this time exactly what coronavirus health precautions will be in place in July. Please check the registration website for any Covid-19 related health precautions that will need to be taken. Also, attached is a Covid-19 related waiver written by the camp. Each adult planning to attend will need to sign it, and minors will need a waiver signed by their parents. Additional copies may be obtained on the registration website.
If you plan to attend, please register no later than June 18, either online at www.bibleconferenceregistration.com or alternatively by contacting Joe Smith (Email: JoeandRuth383@gmail.com, Phone: 330-603-8646) no later than June 18. 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 this time would be a time of nourishment and encouragement, as well as a time of uplifting Christian fellowship. Please also pray that the time for the young people would be especially encouraging and helpful for them.
Signed on behalf of those gathered to the Lord’s Name in Cuyahoga Falls:
Joe Smith & Mark Hapanowicz
