2018 Retreat – May 4-6
Check back in the spring for more information.
Approximately forty-five men, women, and children gathered together at Camp Three Forks Trail on May 5-7 for the annual Spring Retreat. The retreat was under the direction of Miss Kimberly Talley, assisted by a committee of volunteers including Deborah Westbury, Charles Talley, Raymond Talley, and others. The weather was cold and rainy at times, but there was good food, fellowship, and times of worship together. The rocking chairs gathered around the fireplace was welcome place throughout the weekend.
The featured speaker was Dr. Vic Reasoner, President of Southern Methodist College, who spoke on the subject of Practical Sanctification. He brought three messages over weekend emphasizing practical words of encouragement from the Scriptures on how to have a positive relationship with God and how to live a holy life before God and others.
The highlight of the weekend was the dedication service for the Faith Life Center, a multi-purpose building built over the last seven years because of the generosity of God’s people. Approximately 100 people attended the luncheon and service, the most that I have ever seen at one time at the campground. Rev. H.B. “Buzzy” Johnston led the dedication service which included testimonies from individuals who were involved with the planning, fundraising, and building of the Faith Life Center, including Charles Talley, Raymond Talley, Paul Monroe, Bo Lloyd, and Rev. Steven Reynolds. Dr. Dan Thigpen, President of the Southern Methodist Church, brought the dedication message from God’s Word and formally dedicated the building.
Camp Three Forks Trail hosts Summer Teen Camp every July and Family Retreats in May and October. Raymond Talley serves as caretaker and scheduler for the use of the campgrounds, and encourages Southern Methodist churches to plan events at the camp that it might have even a greater use for the glory of God.
