FRENCHTOWN, N.J.—The Garden State Fellowship of Regular Baptist Churches closed out the summer with a Labor Day picnic at New Life Island. Just over 200 people from fellowshipping churches came out for the day to enjoy volleyball, basketball, canoeing, and a worship service on the camp’s property.
After a dinner of barbecued chicken, everyone gathered to hear John Greening, national representative of the GARBC, speak, and for music led by Lex DeLong, pastor of Washington Baptist Church, Turnersville, N.J., and Nigel Black, pastor of Winslow Baptist Church, Sicklerville, N.J.
The Garden State fellowship calls the picnic “a great time for entire families of our churches to come and enjoy the camp, the fellowship, the music, and the ministry of the Word.”
Located on the Delaware River, New Life Island has been ministering since 1972. This summer saw a 12 percent increase in camper attendance, and more than 20 campers made professions of faith in Christ. The camp is one of several Regular Baptists camps across the country.
