Midway's Campout/Cookout will begin this year on Thursday, September 16th 2021 with the Thursday night service out at the camp. It will run from Thursday evening until Saturday afteroon with all of the usual preaching, cooking out, camping and other activities. Be sure to join us!
The Midway Campout/Cookout as we call it started some years ago when we got together as a church family one September at the mission property in Stuarts Draft with our guns (all legal) and had a friendly shooting competition. Later, we added a lunch to the shooting and soon volleyball and other games followed the lunch. As the years went on, we started having supper on Friday evening, a message from the preacher, then testimonies and coffee around a bonfire. Church people began camping out there at the mission property making it a weekend event. Later as the other churches heard about our services and competition, they started joining in, bringing in groups from their churches, camping out with us. The event soon became a retreat, giving us a time to spend together. Families can paddleboat together, take walks or just spend some needed time together while the kids and teens have activities of their own. A service is held on Thursday evening there on the mission property, meals are served beginning with supper on Thursday at 5:00 p.m. and ending with lunch on Saturday at noon. Different preachers are called on to preach during these services.
On Saturday, after the morning service at 9:00 a.m., there are crafts, corn toss, horseshoes and other activities for all to enjoy, then it's back to the dining hall for a nice lunch together.
Look forward to seeing you there!
