Greetings from Blue Mountain Center!
Thank you to everyone who attended the annual "Fall Festival" event on November 1st at Blue Mountain.
As BMC's final event open to the public, UMC families,
and local communities... we loved seeing everyone come out on this
wonderful occasion to help us celebrate the unique gift of camping
ministry here at Blue Mountain. Over the years from stories passed
down, we have been blessed to hear how BMC has remained over time and
seen as "a place set apart" bringing together the 'multi-generations' to
feel God's presence through Spirit-filled experiences while here at
camp. Through the sowing of seeds by many dedicated people over the past
54 years, Blue Mountain has become a beautiful place that folks like to
call 'HOME,' and therefore this camp has been and will forever remain 'a
special place' in the hearts of many who along the way have... felt God
calling them into a deeper faith walk with Christ, felt and realized
that Jesus' love & forgiveness is real, or felt the Spirit leading them
to answer/fulfill the call into ministry. All in all, this camp is rich
with heritage, built with love, and too priceless to dismiss!
Ultimately, Erik and I love camp and we thank you for being here with us
during our 3 years at BMC as we served your church in camping ministry.
We wish to thank you for all the many prayers and support that you have
shown toward the four MO UMC campsites and staff during this time of
transition for all of us. God bless!
In His light,
Christina & Erik Barton
