Every year the Central Nebraska camp meeting is held in Lexington, Nebraska at Camp Arrowhead, a volunteer-operated camp. Pauline Morse with her planning committee coordinated this year’s camp meeting held on July 19 and 20.

The guest speaker was Melvin Santos, vice president for administration for the conference. He spoke on Friday about what it means to be a disciple of Christ. The messages focused on putting Christ first and seeking His kingdom. On Sabbath he dealt with moving forward in faith and removing the  “grasshopper” mentality. The concluding message was on how God deals with those who run the opposite direction of where God is calling them to go.

During Sabbath school Ron Carlson, conference president, gave a mission report on Ukraine and Sue Carlson, director of family, children’s and women’s ministries for the conference, provided special music. A wonderful song service was provided by Willis Callahan and Teresa Peckham, and Arlin Mekelburg provided a very interactive lesson. Other members from various churches participated in additional aspects of the services.

Meals were provided for attendees during the entire camp meeting, followed by the “great potluck-fellowship lunch” with an abundance of food for all.

There were around 65 people in attendance Sabbath morning from area Adventist churches including Aurora, Beaver City, Broken Bow, Grand Island, Hastings, Holdridge, Kearney, North Platte and Sydney.
