The Eugene church participated in a Family Camp May 26-29 at our district-owned SIS-Q Meadows facility in southern Oregon. More than 60 of our members chose to spend this long holiday weekend together.
The Sabbath morning worship service around the fireplace of the newly finished picnic shelter was amazing! Group games, hikes, swimming, Frisbee, golf, and crafty card-making were just a few of the activities that dotted our weekend landscape. Each family was assigned one meal to help with, which involved preparing, serving, and cleaning up.
We also prepared the camp for the busy summer camping season. One group hiked up the river to clean out and open up the irrigation system that feeds our property and the neighbors’ down the road. Teepees were set up for all the sleepy campers to utilize. And we replaced a cross up on the hill that had fallen several years ago. This time we fit it with solar lights for a great night view.
It’s hard to beat family time. This event proved to be a wonderful opportunity for our church family to play, praise, work, and grow together.
