Baptist Association Emphasis May 15-22 -- Associations exemplify the best of cooperation in the Southern Baptist family. Through the strength of local partnerships, local churches voluntarily bond together to reach more people for Christ than they ever could on their own. That same strength in numbers, and cooperation, make the Southern Baptist Convention the strongest missions sending network in the world. Churches are the center of that strength. Associations amplify that strength to make it more focused and effective. Learn about Ashe Baptist Association by going to www.ashebaptist .org on the web or call 336-846-5631 or best yet come by the office at 204 Beaver Creek School Rd in West Jefferson, NC.

Empowering, Mobilizing, Creating Atmosphere for Churches


  Did you know the Ashe Baptist Association owns a campground? If you   travel on the Paul Goodman Road and turn right onto Appaloosa Lane you will find a very nice 9.9 acre parcel of land known as the Ashe Baptist Campground. Some of you use our camp and its facilities for your Conferences, Deacon  Meetings, Fellowship Meetings, VBS Times, Worship Times and even Weddings and other activities. The new Amphitheater is now being built and I think you will be very pleased with the construction and the new location. Due to forest fires last Fall in that area the old Amphitheater was destroyed and the trees were weaken by the fires thus a new location had to be chosen. If you know where home plate is on the ball field then you are familiar with where the new Amphitheater is located. It is at the edge of the ball field near the woods across from home plate. I appreciate all the folks who have made the new Amphitheater possible. Once it is totally completed we will hold a Dedication Service. The Matte Parson Building was not damaged nor was the picnic shelter damaged. The Prayer Garden was damaged and needs to be touched up. Lots of black limbs need to be  carried to areas designated to store them.  I encouraged Churches and Youth Groups to set some time aside to work and do a Mission Trip to the Campground instead of traveling to areas outside of Ashe County. Sometimes missions begins at home!  The camp is useable as it is but needs your touch. Recently 165 folks from some of our churches met on Wednesday night for a hotdog supper and a Worships Service at the Campground. It was a big success with calls to do it again.  [ We do have some guidelines to adhere to when using the camp: We do not allow pets, guns, fire crackers or alcohol on  the grounds or in the  buildings. All groups must have adult supervision and will conduct themselves in a Christian manner at all times. Any church or organization will be expected to pay for any damage to the building or property. Children should not run on the steps or jump on the beds. Marking of walls call for repainting. Toilets sometimes hang-up  after being flushed so please check before leaving. The Ashe Baptist Association is in no way responsible for any accident which may occur while on the campground property. It is clean when you come and should be clean when you leave. It is checked after each visit. Vacuum cleaners are available upstairs and down stairs. Bag all your garbage and take it with you. Clean the bathrooms and showers and  empty trash cans. Turn out all lights, fans and lock the doors when you leave.  Fires are to built in designated areas only. ] This is your campground. It cost nothing for Ashe Baptist Churches to use it. Other churches and organizations must pay a fee to use it. A volleyball field, basketball court, & baseball field is available. Thank you churches who budget money each year for the campground. If you do not currently give I urge you to give so we can keep the campground in a way which glorifies God. Nothing like walking a trail at the campground and hear God talk to you! Also thank you churches who mow the campground every two weeks. Look on the Associational Calendar for the mowing schedule as we set this schedule a year in advance. In the Mattie Parsons building you will find a Wall of Fame of folks who are special to all of us, two air conditioners to keep us cool upstairs along with pews, chairs and tables to make this area multi purpose. The kitchen is well equipped and ready for you to cook. Down stairs are cots to sleep 20 people. The Ray Minton Cabin also sleeps several folks and is available for use. Separate showering areas are available too. Mr. Jack Young, local artist and member of Pleasant Home Baptist Church, before his untimely death painted several murals of the 4 seasons on the walls downstairs. I hope you will take a visit to your campground and let God talk to you. Come by the Ashe Baptist Office and get a key and enjoy God’s creations!!!                                                                       Your Servant , David
