Friday evening each cabin had to do a skit based on a Bible story.  All the skits were very good and it was surprising the passages that were used for some of the skits.  All the skits were very good and enjoyable to watch.  A very good week was enjoyed by all and some who attended for their first time are eager to go again next year.

68TH ANNUAL KENTUCKY/INDIANA FELLOWSHIP.   This fellowship among Churches of Christ was originally known as the “Louisville Bible Conference and Preachers’ Meeting and had it’s beginning in 1948.  It was the result of an impulse among many that a gathering of preachers and other Bible teachers and students for an extended discussion of vital topics and themes would be most helpful, not only for those attending the meeting, but also for the churches represented by them.   The first meeting was held from September 6th to 10th, with three sessions daily, the morning and afternoon sessions being held at the Shawnee church, and the evening sessions at Portland Ave.

Even though the name has changed – the spirit of the meetings continue with a desire to STRENGTHEN and EDIFY small struggling churches.   The opening session is Monday, July 27th at the Portland Christian School auditorium.  It begins at 7:00 p.m. with the Woodland Bible Camp Singers followed by Congregational singing at 7:30.  Then, Bro. Tim Moore (of Lamb & Lion Ministry) will be speaking at 8:00 on the subject:  “Perilous Times.”

Praise be to the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Father of compassion and the God of all comfort, who comforts us in all our troubles, so that we can comfort those in any trouble with the comfort we ourselves have received from God.
