Church of the Nazarene

The Gathering

From June 13-19, 2021 Northwestern Ohio Nazarenes will gather at our Campgrounds in St. Marys. Some will spend the week in cottages, inn rooms, RVs, and tents. Others will come and go. It is an enjoyable week of relaxation, being with friends and family, recreation, good food (and, of course, ice cream.)

Each day there will be worship services.  There is wonderful music that will lift your spirit in praise to God. This year’s preachers include Dr. Charles Tillman, Facilitator of Black Ministries for the Church of the Nazarene (USA) and Drs. Carla and Chuck Sunberg, who served as pastors in the US and were pioneer missionaries for the Church of the Nazarene in Russia. Presently Dr. Carla is a General Superintendent and Dr. Chuck is co-pastoring a church with their daughter. I will be preaching the opening service.  The theme of the preaching for the week is, “The Head and Heart and Hands of Holiness.”  Likewise, there are children’s services each morning and evening Sunday-Friday.

For those who cannot join in person, the services will be livestreamed on Facebook at Lighthouse Camp and Retreat Center or on YouTube at NWONAZ.
