                            Did you know you helped share Jesus to more than 15,000 people in
                            summer 2022?


          Pennsylvania is the last state in the United States to offer worship services between Memo-
          rial Day and Labor Day at their State Parks. The Campground Ministry began in 1960 at
          Cowan’s Gap State Park and has expanded to 35 campgrounds throughout Pennsylvania. As
          Chrisitans, we are called to take the Good (Great) news of Jesus to all of those that will hear
          it. In 2022, our chaplains have had to opportunity to worship with approximately 5,000 peo-
          ple across Pennsylvania, host non-worship events and visit with nearly 12,000 people.


          Your financial contributions, volunteer time, and prayers have made ministering among
          Pennsylvania campers possible in 2022. I invite you to attend a service near you and en-
          courage the chaplain, pray with them, support them with your time, talent, and treasure. You
          can learn more about this essential ministry by visiting our website at
          https://pachurches.org/ministries/campground-ministry/.


          We have just concluded our 2022 season and have already begun planning our 2023 season.
          The Lord is continuing to call those who love Him and will serve Him to ministry. If the
          Lord has impressed serving Him on your heart, I invite you to consider serving as a chaplain
          in 2023. Our current available opportunities are indicated on our website map. Please pass
          this opportunity on to others and if interested, apply today as most opportunities are filled
          before the end of winter. If you have questions regarding the ministry or would like us to
          visit your congregation, please email me at campgroundministry@pachurches.org.
