Zion Tabernacle Meetings

Aug 6, 2017 from 7:00 PM to 9:30 PM

Media Release

166th Annual Zion Tabernacle Meetings

Sunday, August 6, 2017 – Thursday, August 10, 2017

 

The Pastor of Zion Evangelical United Methodist Church is Pastor Ed Newlan. The Church will hold its 166th annual camp meetings at Zion Oaks Tabernacle, 3271 Zion Oaks Road on Sunday, August 6, 2017 through Thursday, August 10, 2017; these meetings began back in 1852.  The building we use today was constructed in 1923.

 

Our Evangelist, Pastor Joel Cartwright, will speak each night at 7:00 p.m.  He is with us for the first time.  Pastor Joel graduated from Indiana Central University (now the University of Indianapolis) with a Bachelor’s degree in Theater.  He went on to Christian Theological Seminary in Indianapolis, where he received his Master of Divinity… and met his wife, Rev. Donna B. Catlin, also a Master of Divinity graduate of CTS.  Joel also holds a Doctor of Ministry degree in Church Growth, Evangelism, and Missions from Asbury Seminary, in Wilmore, KY.  As of 2016, he is the Lead Pastor of the Pekin Grace United Methodist Church.  In addition to her seminary degree, Donna holds a Bachelor of Music Performance from Heidelburg University in Ohio, with a piano major, and voice and violin minors.  Pastor Joel was born in La Harpe, IL, grew up in Galesburg, and attended Springfield High School.

 

Dr. Catlin’s theme for the week is: Let’s Quit Playing Church.  In addition, on Tuesday and Wednesday, Joel and Gary Motta (last year’s guest evangelist) will perform “The Backwoods Preacher”, a drama about the legendary, two-fisted circuit rider, Peter Cartwright, written in the 1980s by Gary Motta.  While Joel has preached as Peter Cartwright over 300 times in churches large and small, at the Illinois State Fair, in the Old and New State Capitols, the Illinois State Library, in historical settings and Chautauquas across the Midwest, and as far away as Poland, this is the first full performance of the play in over 30 years.

 

Each morning at 9:30 a.m., (10:30 a.m. on Sunday), Rev. Ralph Bauer, will lead a Bible Study.  Ralph is with us for the 16th consecutive year. Ralph and his wife Lila were farmers in the Pekin area and attended Groveland Zion as youths. It is a joy for Ralph to teach just a few feet from the altar where he came to know Christ as his Savior in this tabernacle in 1958. Ralph and Lila received their Bible training at Moody Bible Institute, and then spent 41 years in missionary work in the Appalachians of Kentucky and the Island of Trinidad, West Indies in a youth, church planting and teaching ministry.

 

This year we will be challenged by the Book of Philippians and blessed with its theme, “There is Joy in the Journey”, even when we go through difficult times.  Each person who attends the morning sessions will receive, in printed form, the messages on the four Chapters of Philippians.

 

At each evening service there will be special music and a volunteer choir each night.  Please come at 6:30 and join the choir. Everyone is welcome. Come with your friends and enjoy great music, great messages and great Christian fellowship.

Donna B. Catlin, also a Master of Divinity graduate of CTS.  Joel also holds a Doctor of Ministry degree in Church Growth, Evangelism, and Missions from Asbury Seminary, in Wilmore, KY.  As of 2016, he is the Lead Pastor of the Pekin Grace United Methodist Church.  In addition to her seminary degree, Donna holds a Bachelor of Music Performance from Heidelburg University in Ohio, with a piano major, and voice and violin minors.  Pastor Joel was born in La Harpe, IL, grew up in Galesburg, and attended Springfield High School.

 

Dr. Catlin’s theme for the week is: Let’s Quit Playing Church.  In addition, on Tuesday and Wednesday, Joel and Gary Motta (last year’s guest evangelist) will perform “The Backwoods Preacher”, a drama about the legendary, two-fisted circuit rider, Peter Cartwright, written in the 1980s by Gary Motta.  While Joel has preached as Peter Cartwright over 300 times in churches large and small, at the Illinois State Fair, in the Old and New State Capitols, the Illinois State Library, in historical settings and Chautauquas across the Midwest, and as far away as Poland, this is the first full performance of the play in over 30 years.

 

Each morning at 9:30 a.m., (10:30 a.m. on Sunday), Rev. Ralph Bauer, will lead a Bible Study.  Ralph is with us for the 16th consecutive year. Ralph and his wife Lila were farmers in the Pekin area and attended Groveland Zion as youths. It is a joy for Ralph to teach just a few feet from the altar where he came to know Christ as his Savior in this tabernacle in 1958. Ralph and Lila received their Bible training at Moody Bible Institute, and then spent 41 years in missionary work in the Appalachians of Kentucky and the Island of Trinidad, West Indies in a youth, church planting and teaching ministry.

 

This year we will be challenged by the Book of Philippians and blessed with its theme, “There is Joy in the Journey”, even when we go through difficult times.  Each person who attends the morning sessions will receive, in printed form, the messages on the four Chapters of Philippians.

 

At each evening service there will be special music and a volunteer choir each night.  Please come at 6:30 and join the choir. Everyone is welcome. Come with your friends and enjoy great music, great messages and great Christian fellowship.

The Case for Christ - free movie night

Aug 21, 2017 from 6:30 PM to 8:30 PM

Chillicothe Christian films hosts their 11th monthly Free movie night, with The Case for Christ.

Few books have had the lasting impact of Lee Strobel's The Case for Christ, and now the story of their marriage, and Lee's search to disprove Christianity, even if it cost him his family and his job, makes it to the movie screen.

It played for 8 weeks in Peoria area theaters - longer than 95% of the screens across the country, but if you missed it then you can see it now (for free.)

Donations will be accepted, but there is no love offering or anything passed. Any movie-night donations go towards future movie nights, with the goal of the movie nights being a self-sustaining ministry.

Got addictions?

We can help with that.

The Addictions Program at the Bloomington Baptist Church is a faith-based, Christ-centered addictions program utilizing the Reformer's Unanimous Curriculum. Every week we hear stories of victory, receive small-group counseling and receive instruction and guidance on overcoming the challenges, temptations and addictions that we face.

This addictions program is not AA. We provide help for any addiction, not just alcohol. No one will attempt to guilt you or ask you to introduce yourself as an addict. At Reformer's Unanimous, our desire is to help you find victory and complete freedom from your addiction-- to remove the addiction from your life so that it ceases to have a hold on you.

Everyone is welcome.
