43rd Annual Camp J. D. Tygart
South Central District Camp Meeting
September 14-18, 2014

This is a special year for Camp Meeting - we are now the South Central District of the South Georgia Conference and our family has expanded to include 50 new churches!  Bring  your family to Camp Meeting and help welcome these new folks!  Another change is our night to help with the covered dish meal - we are now providing food on Sunday night.  
Paper products and beverages will be provided, but we are expected to help provide a generous covered-dish supper, as well as helping with the choir and helping take up the offering on SUNDAY night.  
For the Camp Meeting special mission, we will collect items for The Methodist Home’s Valdosta Campus.  You can help by bringing toiletries, hair items, school supplies, or linens.   A collection box has been placed in the overflow room - please bring your donations by September 14.

Emergency Responders

Thursday - September 11
11:30 am - 1:30 pm
Ocilla UMC Fellowship Hall

We will host a special lunch for our city and county emergency responders on 9/11.  Be sure to come by and offer a word of appreciation for these dedicated employees and volunteers.    If you will be available to help serve or deliver lunches, please call Bonnie in the church office.

Scripture for Sunday, September 7:  Exodus 12:1-14

Traditions in Transition | Print |  E-mail
Saturday, August 30 2014 06:32

When we speak of John Wesley's Quadrilateral, we speak of something Wesley did not actually define.  Albert Outler, a United Methodist scholar of the last century coined the term.  Outler explained his understanding of Wesleyan theology and thinking using four points or processes:  Scripture, Reason, Tradition, and Experience.

On its face this seems rather simple, but how we interpret those four words sends us in the direction of God, or on a run with the rabbits.
