West Virginia Family Camp Cancelled
 
We received notice today (June 24th) that the 2020 WV Family Camp has been cancelled. The following is what the announcement said
:
June 24, 2020
 
Dear Pastors,
 
We regret to announce the cancellation of our 2020 West Virginia Nazarene Family Camp.
 
Due to recent increases in COVID cases connected to churches as well as conversations with local and state health officials, on Monday evening of this week, our Camp Board voted unanimously to cancel our July 12-19 Family Camp.
 
We are working hard to put together a tech team that will assist us in preparing for a virtual camp (online) meeting during the previously scheduled dates. An online giving option has already been established so that we can support our camp as we normally would by passing the plates.
 
On Monday, July 13th, we will host a live ordination service at the tabernacle for just the ordinands and their immediate families. Our General Superintendent, Dr. Carla Sunberg, will be with us to preside. We will be doing our best to prepare a virtual clergy choir for the traditional ordination music.
 
We know this is disheartening news for so many, but we also know that we are called to make wise and sound decisions that benefit our people and churches.
 
These are strange, challenging, and difficult days but our God still reigns and is in full control of everything. And we know that we can trust him!
 
We will communicate our plans for our “virtual campmeeting” in the coming days.
 
Thank you for your understanding in this matter and for the love and support you give to our great camp!
