Coins with God’s Image (Camp Meeting,  7/8/18)

Jesus’ response to the trap was brilliant:”Whose image is on that coin? Then give to Caesar what belongs to Caesar, but give to God what belongs to God.” It blew His questioners away.
The sermon at the 7/8/18 Camp Meeting turned that question towards us: What “coins” are you carrying?

New Challenge?  Be Strong and Courageous! (Camp Meeting, 8/20/17)

On August 20 2017, the First UMC of Glassboro hosted the Pitman Camp Meeting.  Their Praise Band (Magnify) roused us up with their music, and their Pastor (Rev. John Inverso) inspired us with his message….   Pastor John’s scripture reading was Joshua 1:6-11… 6 “Be strong and courageous, because you will lead these people to inherit the land I swore to their forefathers to give them. 7 Be strong and very courageous. Be careful to obey all the law my servant Moses...

You Were There! (Camp Meeting, 7/16/17)

You Were There! (Camp Meeting, 7/16/17)

Rev. Jim Hughes has a unique ministry where he dresses up as a Biblical character and gives a first person account of what he lived through; of how he saw God or walked with Jesus.  Over the years at the Pitman Camp Meeting we’ve seen him portray characters such as Judas, Peter, and John. Some of those costumes were pretty heavy.  And on a warm July night in the Grove Auditorium, they can be pretty uncomfortable.  There have been evenings where his performance cost him 5-10 pounds from...

Eye Opening Experience! (Camp Meeting, 6/25/17)

Summer!  When the end of May hits the calendar our senses are surrounded with a fresh set of experiences: The smell of burgers on the grill… The chlorine-laden breeze of a pool… The sights of sand and beach…  The smell of sunblock lotion… The quiet splash of whirling lake water as you paddle a canoe.  But to experience all of that, our senses must be open. The speaker at the first service of the 2017 Pitman Camp Meeting was Rev. Bill Wilson, and he focused on our sense...

PUMC to Host Pitman Camp Meeting (8/3/14)

Jim Hughes to speak at Camp Meeting (7/27/14)

Rev. Jim Hughes will be the “speaker” at next week’s Camp Meeting service.  The service is held in the Pitman Grove Tabernacle, starting at 7:30.

Jim has...
