EARLY BIRD CONFERENCE  WITH ROBIN WOOD –  On the opening Saturday a good friend of Warner Camp gifted story teller and pastor Robin Wood will lead a conference sharing miracles and great things from his brand new book  WHAT ARE THE ODDS, book 2.  You might even hear hints of Warner Camp as part of the story.  The conference is at 10:30 am  – after that attendees are invited to join Robin for lunch at the cafeteria, if you like.

BRINGING THE OLD AND NEW TOGETHER   Across 125 years Warner Campmeeting has drawn thousands of people.  It has been renown for good preaching, vibrant worship and rich fellowship. Many have enjoyed training, healing and renewal on these sacred grounds.  It is always good to see families come back year after year – like a reunion.  It is even more exciting when we see new folks come enjoy the Warner experience.  We want you to know the welcome sign is out and the door is open for new families to join us.   Give them an invitation and a warm welcome.

Some things change – some things stay the same.  That is the way it has always been.  You’ll find it that way this year too.  We think both tradition and relevant change are good.  We are excited about some new twists this year as well as some classic things so many of us look forward to, as campmeeting shifts gears on Tuesday.
