Camp Carolwood Board Announces Closing
End of an Era
After much prayer, conversation, and consideration, the Board of Camp Carolwood has made the decision to close Camp Carolwood effective Nov. 30.
This decision is due to the rising costs of upkeep and dwindling revenue. We celebrate the many lives that have been positively impacted through this camping ministry and thank God for this inspiring place. Thank you to our churches and individuals who have supported CC with their prayers, presence, gifts, and service.
We are planning a celebration of the ministry of Camp Carolwood and would love for all to participate with us. More details will come soon.The Camp Carolwood 5k, 10K and Fun Run scheduled for November 21st is canceled.

RESOURCES TO CONNECT WITH THE COMMUNITY:
The Appalachian District Church Vitality Team has been prayerfully seeking ways to help support you and the ministries of your local congregation during this COVID-19 pandemic. Together they have diligently researched and connected with others throughout the conference and our denomination to identify resources and offer them to you. We hope they will be helpful to you and bless you greatly in leading your churches and communities through this unprecedented time. We are very grateful to the District Vitality Team and other contributors for their great work on this resource.
This faithful team has created three documents, two of which you are receiving today. They include:
- Family Home Worship – designed to help families establish a regular worship space within their homes as well as a time where they can worship together.
- Tech Strategies – to help guide you in selecting effective tools and resources within your budget to best communicate in the digital world.
We believe these resources will be of great benefit to you. Also know that the District Vitality Team is available to answer any questions you might have in regards to the documents attached. If you have questions, you may email Rev. Howard Fleming at email@example.com.
