Rod Bargen, long-time board member for VTI, reports on Celebration Sunday:
Sunday... perhaps better described as Celebration Weekend: the River’s
Edge board met during the day on Saturday, then in the evening the VTI
board met, with a number of new members, who are associated with the
River’s Edge Camping Association (see board page).
I’ve continued to have a sense of men and women with a heart for God,
and unity, as we come together under our head, Christ. It was also a
time to see Mike & Michelle Joos pack up and head out from their
home at Discovery Lodge to a new ministry in Ontario.
On Sunday morning many of us celebrated “THE LIFE” together in Christ as
we met for fellowship, sharing from the Word, and remembering the life
and death of Christ through the emblems of the wine and the bread.
afternoon was an open house for those connected with the ministry
and was attended primarily by supporters of the River’s Edge ministry.
There was a celebration service at 4:00 with praise music, recounting the
work of River’s Edge over the year, a brief history and overview of VTI,
and a message by Lance Duncalfe, with the theme “Today we celebrate the
mystery of what goes on in unseen places, yet miraculously produces
limitless, life-impacting potential!” Read the full text here.
