Below are details about a couple of special events.
Visit www.pattersongrove150years.org for tickets!
Golden Scoop Ice Cream Contest: Everyone from young to old that wants to be part of the day to sample taste and vote for the People’s Choice Awards will need a ticket. Choose the time you and your family and friends want to come – 1-2, 2-3, or 3-4pm. Since everyone will need to purchase a ticket you can do it online. We have surprise celebrity judges coming, special entertainment, and at least one other surprise attendee. Encourage people to stay for the evening service that night. (Cottageholders, see email from Linda Shypulefski for other options for getting tickets if desired.)
Victorian Tea: If you belong to the Grove, either as a cottageholder or someone who is part of us without owning a cottage, there will be NO charge for the Tea. Cottageholders can purchase guest tickets for $5 each. Others wishing to participate may buy tickets for $10 each. Little girls five years and older are invited; the same price rules apply to them. Old time dress is encouraged for the Tea.
Other planned events:
The first Sunday afternoon of Campmeeting will feature a “Through the Decades” Hymn Sing. You may be surprised at the decade in which some of our favorite hymns, songs, and praise choruses were written. We are encouraging old time dress for this first day.
The last Sunday will feature an “Entire Bible Proclamation Service” in the afternoon. We are asking that you get a ticket for this event just so we can plan on the number of participants. There is NO CHARGE for the ticket. This service has been done in other locations and has proven to be a spiritual highlight for those participating. Each person – child, youth, and adult – is given a portion of Scripture to read. If you go to the Snack Shop after church you know how everyone is talking at the same time. That’s the way the service goes…everyone will read their section of Scripture at the same time, and when everyone has completed that section, after prayer, the next section is read. (We plan to have bottles of water and hard candy on hand to keep you refreshed.) The reading of the entire Bible will take less than two hours. We believe this will be an exciting and spiritually uplifting service to lead us to the final evening service and March to Zion.
