The seaside community where all generations can know and grow in Jesus.
The mission of the Ocean Grove Camp Meeting Association, rooted in its Methodist heritage, is to provide opportunities for spiritual birth, growth, and renewal through worship, education, cultural and recreational activities in a Christian seaside setting.
“It’s not easy for any of us to do what God has called us to do, to go make disciples of the world,” says lead singer Dave Frey. However, fourteen years on, all that work has carried their music and their collective hearts for the Lord to the upper reaches, but more importantly has earned the affection and respect of a growing legion of fans. audiences worldwide.

Love does not behave rudely, does not seek its own, it not proviked, thinks no evil; I Corinthians 13:5
By John DiGiamberardino
Paul finished describing the importance of doing things with the attitude or motivation of LOVE. Then he defines the meaning of love. He says, Love is patient, love is kind. This isn’t just patient with circumstances. This is patience in our relationships, patience with people. It comes from the Greek word makrothumos. It means learning to be patient. It has to do with anger.
When was the last time you got angry and why?
Most people deal with anger in one of two ways. You are either a skunk or a turtle. A skunk is the one who, when an argument occurs, you sort of spew. Everybody in the room knows how you feel. You stink up the place, and you want everybody to know. Then there are some who are turtles. When the bad times come, your head goes right back in the shell. Neither of those ways work. Both are not good.
James 1:19 says, “Everyone should be quick to listen, slow to speak and slow to become angry.”
Notice we are not told not to get angry. Anger is a natural emotion. But we have to be careful in how we express that anger both physically and in the words we use.
Here is my advice if you find yourself getting angry too often. First , turn your worries over to God. Speak to someone about why you are worried. Tell them why you are anxious. Talking it out/praying it out has more benefit than we realize.
Second, get some rest. Sometimes when we get angry it is simply because we are tired. Go take a nap. Then get up and have a nice meal.
My father had an interesting philosophy that I did not necessarily agree with but understood. He would say, “People are rotten.” If you expect people to be rotten you will never be disappointed.
I think what he was trying to say is that you need to have realistic expectations. Everyone is generally selfish by nature. That is why we need the Holy Spirit to help us love as God called us to love.
Love never gives up.
Love cares more for others than for self.
Love doesn’t want what it doesn’t have.
Love doesn’t strut,
Love doesn’t have a swollen head
Take time today to talk to someone about what is upsetting you. Pray to God about it. Get some rest and have a nice meal. Then reflect and think on how you can be more loving to others.
