Fire in Dining Hall Damages Bathrooms

Firemarshall, “It is literally a miracle that the building was not a total loss!” Our response, “The Owners have special connections to “The Miracle Worker”

On Monday morning, October 19th at 8:40 a.m. A small fire was discovered in the vent/fan and light assembly unit of the women’s bathroom in the Dining Hall. The Calera Fire Department was dispatched and quickly had the building safe with minimumal damage.

The bathroom electrical wiring, the bathroom ceiling, the electrical fixtures; and insulation will all need to be replaced in order to open the dining hall for future guest groups.

Chuck and Renee Parish, Executive Directors at Rolling Hill, are again praising God for His loving Care and tender mercies in overseeing His Special Camp. 2015 has proved to be a summer of many challanges and considerable damage to the campgrounds due to weather, fallen trees, aging facilities and equipment failures. God has been so very faithful to meet the financial needs of this special place during difficult and trying times.

Chuck sends this special request to the Alabama Nazarene Church Family: “Your love and support through the years, and the love, dreams and support of those who have already preceded us into God’s presence, is the sole reason that Rolling Hills continues to provide a safe, spirit-filled environment where our children, neighbors, and communities can find the peace of God and the forgiveness of sin which was provided on the Cross by Jesus.

Rolling Hills Camp is a Holy Place where God has chosen to bring the men, women, children and teens, of various ethnic groups, and numerous denominations together in one place. He has then been faithful to allow for times of spiritual growth and development surrounded by His Love and the Power of His a Spirit. Only God’s History Books will contain the stories of all the life changing moments which have occurred since 1968 when the Camp began.

Now, once again, we need to ask you to seek the Face of the Lord and ask Him what He wants you to do to bless the Camp at this time of need. I truly believe that God wants to, and Will bless His people beyond measure in quantities heaping up and running over if we will be obedient to His Voice.

Please don’t wait, do it now. Here are ways to give as the Lord leads you:
