From the Camp Director,
As this newsletter is going out, we are having our Labor Day Family Camp. I just love the atmosphere that we have at Family Camp. One of the highlights of this ministry is just the fellowship of so many churches. It's great when you can gather with many churches to Worship our One True God. We will be posting all of the pictures from Family Camp on facebook this week.
Augsut has been a little challenging for Hanging Rock. We learned of Tom Lloyd resigning from the Maintenance Director position. We are all very sad to see him go with his talents and abilities, he has helped the camp accomplish so much over his twleve years of service. Tom and his family will be living here until they find a place off campus. Tom has agreed to help with the Waste Treatment Plant & help us close the pool after Family Camp. I would encourage you to send a note of encouragement to Tom and just thank him for his twelve years of service. You can send it to the camp and we will make sure he gets it.
We have started the process of trying to find a new Maintenance Director and ask that you be in prayer for us as we seek who the Lord has planned for the position. We do have the job description and application on our website if anyone is interested. We have received some applications and have given tours to several people who are interested. We are hoping to have someone hired no later than November 1st.
We have a lot going on with all of the retreats scheduled for this fall that we are either are hosting or have programmed. We are going to need more volunteers with the abscence of a Maintenance Director. If you like mowing, doing light maintance and want to volunteer we would love to have the help. Just click on the tab below to fill out a volunteer form and we will be in contact with you.
I was asked the other day, if it made me nervous not having a Maintenance Director, as of right now, no I am not. Tom is still living on property and if the camp needs something I know he would be willing to help. But, I'm also not nervous becuase we rely on a Heavenly Father that is in charge of Hanging Rock and everything is HIS! Psalm 24:1 Of David. A psalm. The earth is the Lord’s, and everything in it, the world, and all who live in it; I think God has got this. I fully tust in HIS leadership.
Keep us in your prayers and if you can help let us know.
Gary Baker, Executive Director
