Offering for May 25, 2024

Michigan Advance Partners

The Campmeeting experience is such an incredible blessing as it affords us so many things; time with family and friends, opportunities to meet new people, and inspiring meetings and seminars just to name a few. The blessings are numerous and rich. It truly is a time when it seems Heaven draws especially close.

While preparing for the Camp Meeting in 1868 very specific goals were established in order to accomplish as much as possible for the cause of Christ.

“We desire to call out as many of our brethren, both preachers and people, as we can, and also as many of our unconverted fellowmen as we may be able to interest in this meeting, that we may do them good. We want all who shall come to this meeting to come for the purpose of seeking God. We want our brethren to come for the purpose of seeking a new conversion. We want our preachers to set them in this an example worthy of imitation. We desire also to see many of our fellowmen who have no interest in Christ, or at least no knowledge of the present truth, converted to the Lord, and rejoicing in the light of His truth.”—The Review and Herald, August 18, 1868.

As we prepare for this year’s Campmeeting, and Christ’s soon coming, may we be planning and praying for the Holy Spirit’s presence to impact each one in a mighty and powerful way so that many will be recommitted to God, and others will be brought into the fold.

Today’s loose offering is for Michigan Advance Partners which helps to support Campmeeting. You can also give through the Tithe & Offering Envelope or through online giving. May God bless Campmeeting as well as each one as we give to this special cause.
