South Union Campmeeting set for July 20-25

Pastor Ed Saunders and the members of South Union United Methodist Church invite all to the 140th Campmeeting at South Union Campground beginning Friday evening, July 20 through Wednesday, July 25.

Campmeeting takes many back to a simpler time; just good old- fashioned worship of God under the open arbor with hymns like, “When the Roll Is Called Up Yonder,” “Revive Us Again” and “Love Lifted Me.” Campmeeting affords many the opportunity to worship and to teach children to worship in the same place as their ancestors did, in the same way.

“We can go back to a single, uncomplicated time and place and always know that God is with us and He loves us,” stated organizers.

There are four worship services each day – 8:00 and 11:00 am and 3:00 and 7:30 pm. The Camp Meeting preacher is Rev. Raymond Rooney who is pastor of Wesley United Methodist Church of Tupelo. The song leaders are Buddy and Carol Smith and the pianist will is Ms. Janees Garey. For more information, visit the website at
