Pitman Camp Meeting

The town of Pitman, and the Pitman United Methodist Church, had its roots in the Camp Meeting Tradition which thrived in the Southern New Jersey area in the early 1900’s.

During the summer, the tradition continues (albiet at a much smaller scale), as the various United Methodist Churches in our area host an evening service of music and worship each Sunday at 7:30 PM in the historic William L. (Bud) Moore Auditorium which is located in the center of Pitman’s grove area.

Camp Meeting Bell

In the late 1800’s a bell was dedicated to the Pitman Grove Methodist Episcopal Church (which is now the Pitman United Methodist Church).  This bell is now located in the rear of the Auditorium, and is a reminder of our rich heritage.

The Camp Meeting services always open with prayer, but immediately after the prayer the Tabernacle’s bell calls us to worship.
