Prelude: Janice Calhoun and Cheryl Paulsen played a piano/harp duet, which included: “Jesus Whispers Peace,” “Master, the Tempest is Raging,” “Wonderful Peace,” “Peace in My Heart to Stay,” and “Sweet Peace, the Gift of God’s Love.” They concluded with “In the Garden,” as Shawn Worthington read the history of this song. The congregation then joined in singing to finish the prelude.

Ellen Morgan thanked the Lord for being by her side and keeping her for more than forty years. Amy Patan rejoiced that the Lord answered so many prayers for her this camp meeting that had been on her heart for years. Joseph Krishnapuram gave thanks that after traveling thousands of miles from India, the Lord sanctified him in 2017 and he received the baptism of the Holy Spirit in 2018. He said he was glad to attend his second camp meeting this year and that things just keep getting better. Terry Hopkins thanked the Lord for undertaking for her when a woman stepped out in front of her car and she was able to avoid hitting the lady.

First Special: Ellen and Ashley Morgan sang “'Till the Storm Passes By.”

Last Special: Holly Lambert sang “Songs in the Night.”

Sermon: Speaking of the power of the Word of God, Chet King (pictured above) used Genesis 1:1, Revelation 22:20, and various verses from Psalms for his text. He said the Book of Psalms, mostly written by David, has been a great comfort and encouragement, and is filled with wonderful promises for Christians throughout the ages.
