PACIFIC UNION CAMPMEETINGS
In August of 1948, Soquel hosted their very first camp meeting, then called “Santa Cruz Camp Meeting.” This year marks the 70th anniversary of Soquel Camp Meeting—a milestone celebrated on the cover of this month’s Pacific Union Recorder.
The Pacific Union has a rich tradition of hosting some of the best and the largest camp meetings in history. In fact, it was at a camp meeting, in 1873, in Yountville that the first California Conference was officially organized with seven churches and 253 members. Pioneer Missionary, J. N. Loughborough, was elected the first conference president.
For more than 100 years, the Seventh-day Adventist church has been conducting camp meetings here in the Pacific Southwest. Arizona Conference had a wonderful Camp meeting which concluded last weekend at Camp Yavapines.
At these wonderful gatherings, the blessings will fall on All God’s People once again, as they always do: faith will be renewed, commitments to service will be made. Friends will meet together, families will reconnect, children will play, and members and guests alike will convene at sacred campgrounds such as Soquel to worship our Creator.
Mark these dates below on your calendar! We look forward to seeing you there.
