Eureka United Methodist Church will host an Old Fashioned Camp Meeting at 10:30 a.m. Aug. 26.

Join us for a morning of testimony, song, and fellowship as we revisit the days of the old-fashioned church camp meeting.  

“The Faithfulness of God” is the theme for the morning worship featuring the Eureka United Methodist Church Praise and Worship Choir, under the direction of Tracy Martz and Mark Gifford, guest pianist .

 Mark is one of the organists at the Lincoln Theatre in Belleville and the FOX Theatre (lobby organ) in St. Louis.

He has recorded a Christmas album on the Lincoln Theatre Pipe Organ entitled, “Pipe In a Swingin’ Christmas” which was released in December of 1998.

Rev. Mark is the Associate Pastor of the Parkway Christian Church in Springfield.

Mark is also on staff at Christ The King Catholic Church as organist for the Saturday afternoon Mass.

His worship playing can also be heard at several churches in central Illinois that lack a regular organist, as they have digital recordings of his hymn playing and use them as needed throughout the year.
