Columbia Union Campmeeting--Potomac

By Neville Harcombe


Bill Miller, president of Potomac Conference, accepts the symbol of gratitude for the part that Potomac played in the 100-year history of the Columbia Union.

The Hope Channel broadcasted Potomac's Sabbath program live.

This is one of the many camp meeting "taxis" that transported attendees around the event, located at Shenandoah Valley Academy in New Market, Va.
Prayer is an important aspect of camp meeting.
Dunbar Henri, principal of Takoma Academy in Takoma Park, Md., and his wife, Debbie, made the three-hour drive to camp meeting on his motorcycle. My daughter, Denita Smith (far left) and I welcomed them, but we didn't take ride with them.
Dan Matthews, retired speaker/director for Faith for Today, and Silver Spring (Md.) pastor Victoria Harrison played an important role in the Sabbath School program.
Thousands attended camp meeting this year where the theme was "Watch, Ye Saints." They worshipped in a huge white tent that is able to withstand the winds of tornadoes. Good thing because on Thursday, a strong front came through and the tent stood firm. Thankfully, Sabbath was a beautiful day.
There's something for everyone at Potomac Camp Meeting, especially the kids, who enjoy their programs and hanging out with friends!
