A Journey of Memories
During Advent—the time before Christmas—we watch, wait, and prepare for the coming of the Messiah. We read Scriptures and practice church traditions that have been around for 2,000 years. This 2016 devotional is a journey of memories—of the many sights, smells, tastes, and sounds that point to the promises of God in Jesus Christ. These are the daily incarnations of our faith. When does a touch remind us of Jesus? Can a candle bring God’s hope to a dark room? Can a smell take us to a holy place?
Sue Washburn—pastor and editor of Presbyterians Today—has put together a collection of daily reflections and prayers to help us experience the joy and wonder of Christ’s birth with the senses God has given us. Susan Blank’s exquisite quilts add to the beauty and remembrances in this year’s Advent Calendar.

FALL CAMP CLEAN-UP/WINTERIZATION TIME
Well it's that time of the year again when the camp needs winterized and final repairs are made before winter. I have planned Sept. 26, 27, and 28 for the final work days for the camp.
As I speak, the pool is filling with water to the winter level to prevent heaving of the concrete.
After the pool if filled the entire water system needs drained and blown with air at each spigot and commode. I have purchased 24 gal. of RV Antifreeze for the commodes and drains, (prevent freeze ups with damage.)
Also, G-2 needs an area patched on the roof. We also have 2 building to dismantle and remove but that is another time, possibly in the spring. We will also do a final mowing and trimming.
If there are enough volunteers our job could be done in 2 days or less. Please consider donating some time to make the job easier for all and pass this info onto other Presbyterians.
Thank You with Blessings,
