Herriman Chapel Camp meeting was started in 1927. This camp was an annual tradition, and over the years, has been enjoyed by many individuals. In some families, the sixth generation continue to enjoy visiting the campus and participating in the various activities.
This year, Herriman Chapel Camp planning committee, led by Chairman Richard Beckham, met early in the summer and made the decision, due to COVID, to cancel the traditional Herriman Chapel Camp meeting. This was a difficult decision as the camp had been held annually since 1927.
However, plans were set in place to celebrate 93 years of camp by hosting our first Southern Gospel Festival scheduled for Oct. 9-11. This weekend of gospel music starts on Friday evening, Oct. 9, with a chili supper and pie auction fundraiser, with free entertainment by the Shoal Creek Revival Quartet with Marla Cook.
Saturday, Oct. 10, activities will start at 12:30 p.m. and go to 5:30, with performances by the Victorymen Quartet, The Formans, Liberty Belles, The Matt Carroll family, Messengers of Faith and Shoal Creek Revival Quartet. A concession stand will be open all afternoon and will feature pulled pork and other food items.
The Herriamn Chapel Church has invited the Shoal Creek Revival Quartet to return Sunday morning, Oct. 11 and perform from 10:45-11:45 a.m.
These events are free, however, free will offerings will be taken. Events will be held under the tabernacle and area surrounding the tabernacle giving plenty of space for social distancing id desired. Seating is available but all are welcome to bring lawn chairs.
Herriman Chapel Campus is located 1.5 miles south of 54 Hwy., on 39 Hwy.
