Local Church to Get Land for New Location

Clarksburg (Lost Creek), WV - Christian Apostolic Church (UPCI), has agreed to buy 7.2 acres of meadow land adjacent to Interstate 79 and located only a couple tenths of a mile from an exit off the interstate. Pastor Doug Joseph writes, "Our church has long sought to get a better location. Property in our area is very expensive. If land is in a good location it is extremely expensive. After years of looking and praying, we eventually resolved to just have faith and patiently wait for God to help. God has answered in a big way. Long story short: Today we met with the owner, and entered into a purchase agreement for land in a great location. Several of our church members were there, including Elders, Board members, and Saints. It is with great joy and excitement that we announce that CAC will, if the Lord tarries, eventually move to a new location that is much better than our current location. The meadow land is beautiful. We praise the Lord for His great BLESSINGS! Hallelujah!" (Photos by Elder David Harris Jr.)

WV UPCI Sunday School Camp Praise Reports

(Note: The newest reports are shown at the top.)

Elder John Sandy sent us the following comments and photos via email:

Here are some pics from Sunday School camp that you can either use on the church bulletin or the district website.  I had to delete several that did not come out too well due to lighting.

I am also including some of the better ones that JT took after service, before we left.  He is definitely hooked on becoming an every-year camper.  He loved praising the Lord and thought all the church events were perfect for him.  He has come home excited about what God could do through him!

I am especially thankful for those who go and take time from their personal jobs to minister to these young ones and make them strong now, so that when they become the senior high group, they can hit the ground running.


The future of the WV UPCI is looking brighter because of Sunday School kids that love to praise God and learn of Him!

Dear Pastors, Ministers and Fellow Laborers:

Let me begin by saying how very humbled we are that you have elected us as your new District Youth Secretary. Tiphanii and I are very grateful and honored that you have placed your confidence in us. I can tell you that first and foremost we will do anything and everything we can to serve you, our District, youth team, and young people, to the very best of our ability. This is not a task we take lightly. With that being said, we are very excited about what the future holds!

We are very excited to be working with our new District Youth President Rev. David Bounds. I know he has a tremendous love and passion for our generation and will do an excellent job in his new role. Also, we are very blessed to have such a wonderful and capable youth team to work with. I believe we are on the brink of the greatest revival in the history of the West Virginia District Youth.

Let me take this time to also remind you about two very important things coming up. We are looking forward to West Virginia District Youth Camp on July 26th – 30th. We have evangelist Matt Tuttle scheduled to be with us. You don’t want to miss this exciting time of year! Also, remember the Sheaves for Christ deadline is rapidly approaching, August 29th. Please be in prayer and continue to raise funds for this excellent cause.

In closing, let me say that if there is anything that I can do to help or assist you please do not hesitate to call or email me. Together we can make a difference in this generation. We love each and every one of you and look forward to what God is going to do!

Live 2 Give,

Justin R. Meadors
WV District Youth Secretary
