Dear Members, Students, Friends, and Guests of Camp Chesterfield,

During these changing and challenging times, we are thankful for your continued support including your blessings of optimism, kindness, and cooperation. Last March, the IAOS Board of Trustees reluctantly voted to close our public buildings due to the Covid situation. We quickly moved to online worship services, message services, and online Chesterfield Spiritualist College Classes. The 12 member Board of Trustees continues to exercise caution regarding the issue of in-person services and seminary classes for the protection of our residents, students, and guests. We will provide regular updates regarding our status. We look forward to re-opening and welcoming everyone back when public safety permits.

During these unprecedented times, it is important to continue to support Camp Chesterfield in your thoughts and prayers and financially as well. Although we are closed to gatherings, we still have financial obligations to pay so that we can continue to function soundly during and after quarantine times and open our doors to you in the near future. We have been blessed with thoughtful members who have generously donated to helping us survive these difficult times, and we express our sincere gratitude to those blessed souls. We are prayerfully asking for your continued support during these catastrophic times.

Dear Members, Students, and Friends of Camp Chesterfield,

We are blessed to have a strong, supportive membership, a vibrant group of students and alumni, and a vital and caring group of friends who offer support and love to Camp Chesterfield, and for this we are so grateful. We miss gathering together for our weekly Saturday Message Services and Sunday Worship Services, missed seeing our amazing students at the March Seminary Weekend and April Seminary, and miss your presence here on these sacred grounds, but we know that the time is coming when we will be able to resume all of our events and be together again.

Dear Friends,

The effects of the coronavirus is moving so quickly, it is hard to keep up. We were notified today that Madison County (home of Camp Chesterfield) has been placed on a travel advisory. This means that only essential travel is allowed. In addition, the county has ordered the closing of all retail businesses, and that, unfortunately, includes our beloved Tree of Life bookstore.

Effective Friday, March 20th, the Tree of Life will be closed until April 6th in keeping with the mandates of Madison County. We are going to put our heads together and try to offer an online way to purchase items in the store. Our heads are still spinning a bit, so give us a few minutes and we will get back to you on this one.

The Education committee is working as quickly as possible to get online classes up and running, and we will keep you posted on this as well.

Finally, and on a positive note, we have some creative resident ministers who are going to offer an online worship/message service as a fund-raising effort for Camp. The service will be offered on March 29th, and more details will be quickly forthcoming so stayed tuned to our website and Facebook page. We think you’re going to like it!

We know this is temporary, and we will look for all the blessings we can find each day. Therefore, I will leave you with the wisdom of the New Testament. Romans 12:12 tells us, “Rejoice in hope, be patient in suffering, persevere in prayer”. These are the most perfect words for this imperfect time.

Many blessings,

Rev. Vicki
President, IAOS
Historic Camp Chesterfield.
