The Secretariat of the South Carolina Via de Cristo would like to invite YOU, yes, YOU, to the Via de Cristo 24-Hour Fourth Day Community Experience—24 hours filled with fun, food and fellowship as well as something a little different!
After much thought and prayer, the Secretariat decided we needed to step out of the box a bit and have 24 hours for the VdC community to come together and have a relaxing time together—at CAMP KINARD. For some of you, this is where you made your weekend and may not have been back since then, unless you worked on a team. For those of you who have never been, please take this opportunity to visit one of the SC Lutheran Retreat Centers—the place where South Carolina Via de Cristo held its first weekend!
We, Secretariat members, believe this is the path the Holy Spirit is directing us to take at this time. The Via de Cristo message is your Fourth Day and the rest of your life. Come help spread the Love of Jesus Christ to others. Perhaps you will see people from your weekend table, team members who served on your weekend, and maybe, just maybe, the Holy Spirit will appear, too.
Accompanying this invitation is a registration form. Please read it carefully! Each person planning to attend must fill out a separate registration form. If you are not able to be there Friday, please come for Saturday’s events! Our hope is that we get many positive responses to our invitation, but because music and prayer are such integral parts of every Via de Cristo gathering, we are encouraging MUSICIANS and PASTORS to take part—pastors, choir directors, organists, and other musicians will be home in plenty of time for Sunday services in your own churches!!
Friday night we will be meeting for dinner 5:30 at Shealy’s. You are welcome to come first to Camp Kinard to check in at 4 pm or just meet us at Shealy’s at 5:30 pm. We look forward to receiving your application soon and will follow up with a confirmation letter containing additional details.
Date: Friday, September 30 and Saturday, October 1.
Time: Check-in 4:00 pm
Place: Camp Kinard, 6053 Two Notch Road, Batesburg-Leesville, SC 29006
