Navajo camp meeting in the woods
Leupp Ranch Hands Ministry presents the 2022 Camp Meeting September 2-5 in the Juniper Forest east of Flagstaff on Leupp Road.
Horseback riders, cyclists, hitchhikers and walkers depart Sept. 3 from the ranch on Route 15, which turns into Leupp Road at the reservation line. They arrive at camp between mile markers 434 and 435 for daily church services, singing, games, workshops, camping, and fellowship.
Bring tents, Bibles, chairs, and hymnals. Sponsors ask participants to include their own food items when packing their camping gear. CDC health guidelines for COVID-19 will always be followed. Schedule changes are available by calling Leonard at (928) 255-7675.
A few runners begin the 200-mile journey Aug. 12 near Montezuma Creek, Utah and will make overnight stops at churches or residences before reaching the campsite Sept. 3. There will be prayer services along the way and riders are responsible for caring for the horses. More information is available by calling Robert at (928) 255-8503.
The theme is 1 Thess. 5:16-18. “Rejoice always. Pray without ceasing…” (KJV)
