Camp Meeting Food Booth
We are in need of volunteers to help
with the food booth. The booth is
open nightly before and after
services. We need servers (3
nightly), grill cooks (1-2 nightly),
ice cream and pop station workers
(2 nightly), and help with dishes (1
nightly). Contact Tisa Barlow if you
are available or for more
information. Food booth workers
are able to attend the majority of the
camp meeting service as the booth
is closed during service times.
Funds from the food booth help
many local ministries of the church
throughout the year including
women’s ministry, Christmas gifts
for shut-ins, outreach ministries,
children’s and youth programs,
scholarships for students at MVNU,
and much more.
Bridges an internationally-acclaimed Gospel
group known for tight harmonies, a unique vocal
style, an exciting and energy packed stage
presence and, most importantly, for spreading
the joy of the Good News of Christ. They have
entertained and ministered to millions through
their recordings, TV appearances and live shows
— which is why Three Bridges has quickly
become one of the most prominent Gospel
groups in Christian music today. Three Bridges
has enjoyed great radio success on the Southern
Gospel Music Charts, including seven top 10′s
and three #1’s. The trio consists of Elliott McCoy
(founder/manager/baritone), Shannon Smith
(lead) and Jeremie Hudson (tenor). Although
from varied backgrounds and hailing from
different parts of the country, God brought these
three men together for His purpose and glory.
They minister wherever God calls them to
spread His Word through music. You will be
blessed! A love offering will be taken.
