Mt. Lebanon Campmeeting
Mt. Lebanon Campmeeting - 1892-2017
Join us this year as we "encounter God in the Grove" through Spirit-led preaching and singing, and through special events, such as a pageant, ring service, campfires and other historical events. Visit the museum and view artifacts from previous campmeetings and see the history behind many of the cottages. View videos of the 100th anniversary and see how how campmeeting "happened" in the 1950s. We encourage you to join us in period clothing from the 1890s and become a part of our 125th anniversary.
Encounter God in the Grove on July 9 at 6:45 by experiencing a day in the life of a camper in the early 1900’s in a coal oil lit historical tabernacle by singing in English and Pa Dutch, participating in a Ring Service, and watching the Illumination of the Grove. Join us?
