Dear Bloys Members and Guests,
As we go into our 129th year, the memory of our centennial meeting seems like yesterday. Yet, to look at our cultural changes in the past 29 years, many cultural changes seem to have come a long way in this short period of time.
Two items among many that have not changed are: First, accepting Christ as your savior is still the single most important decision in your life. Secondly, all decisions have consequences. Some may be good, others will be bad, and still more are in the grey between the two with the possibility of having good and bad consequences from the same decision.
One of the reasons Bloys was started 129 years ago was because several people knew the vital importance of their family and friends accepting Christ. This decision created the wonderful atmosphere for Bloys’ attendees to make the second decision to not only attend Bloys and go to church but to also spend as much time as possible with the Lord and friends at Bloys.
Dates have been changed trying to accommodate the membership to attend Bloys for the entire meeting, hoping that your decision to attend as long as possible would be rewarding for your personal relationship with God. The Lord has given us a magnificent opportunity to get away from the hustle and bustle of life and to enjoy a heritage passed on for 129 years.
This year’s August meeting will begin on Friday the 3rd with our church service at 8 PM. Our Memorial Service will be Saturday the 4th at 3 PM, “Old Timers Night” will be on Saturday the 4th at 8 PM, our annual business meeting will be Tuesday the 7th at 1:30, and our last service will be Wednesday evening the 8th at 8 PM. All four ministers and the music team will be returning from last year. Wednesday the 1st will be the first day allowed on the campgrounds.
For all our first time visitors and guests, our superintendent, Matt Miles, will cover announcements, rules, and locations of services for all our youth at our opening 8 PM church service on the 3rd. Should you miss this service, Matt, your representatives and trustees, or any longstanding Bloys member are available for help.
As I have said before, I go nowhere throughout the year where I feel God’s presence more than at Bloys Campmeeting. Hope to see everyone for the entire meeting week beginning on the 3rd. Please travel safely.
Gerald Nobles, Jr.
President, Bloys Campmeeting Association
