From the Camp Director,
September is a very busy time here at Hanging Rock, from Family Camp, to the Ladies Night Out to the Minister's Brunch and then retreats on the weekends. I just want to remind you the reason we exisit here at Hanging Rock. Why are we so busy? Hanging Rock is here to help people disconnect from the world around us to establish and strengthen our relationship with Christ, We are reminded in Pslam 46 to be still. This is easier said than done for all of us. I don't know about you, but when I wake up, I am already thinking about what needs to be done for the day. This is a good thing at times, but also a curse.
This verse from Psalms always helps me remember the importance of finding time to sit and be still. It makes a difference when we take time and get into His presence. My challenge would be, look at the opportunities we offer you and your family to sit and be still without the distractions of the world around you. When you come to Hanging Rock it is our desire to provide a place for you to rest, renew and strengthen your relationship with Christ. Our desire is that God will overflow our cups into our family and everything else we do.
Psalm 46:10 He says, "be still and know that I am God; I will be exalted among the nations, I will be exalted in the earth." This happens as we take time to be still.
Join us here at Hanging Rock for one of our retreats as you find time to be still before our Lord.
Serving through Christian Camping,
Gary Baker, Executive Director
