Pastor Keith Peck: “Ecclesiastes: When All You Ever Wanted Isn’t Enough”
About the speaker: Keith has served in pastoral ministry for the past 45 years. For 30 years, he and Gale ministered in Annapolis, where their church supported the Nav, Cru & OCF ministries at USNA. Keith and Gale now serve OCF in the role of Pastoral Care. They are blessed with 5 children and 17 grandchildren (who live in 5 different time zones).
About the topic: Ecclesiastes begins “the words of the Preacher”. Yet as you read, it is unlike any sermon you’ve heard. The sermon’s theme is “meaningless, meaningless”. This seems so strange. And yet its strangeness provides an honest portrayal of the common human experience of people everywhere as we grapple with the perplexities of making life work “under the sun”. Solomon’s strange sermon invites us to engage this perplexing life more fully “under the SON”.
Concurrent Programs Available: OCF Anchor Points, Horsemanship Day Camp (ages 8+), Camp Caleb Day Camp on June 29 (2nd-3rd grade), Camp Caleb Adventure (5th-6th grade), and Camp Caleb Challenge (7th-8th grade), and Allegheny Outback! Advanced (11th-12th grade)
OCF Anchor Points is an annual missions-focused, week-long conference, designed to help you develop a more effective spiritual leadership focus for a lifetime. OCF’s Executive Director and other leaders will lead sessions in which we examine the Scriptures together regarding calling and leadership, pray about glorifying Him in service, develop a personal mission statement, and do all this in the context of your phase of life (single, married, kids). This leader development is for those in uniform, out of uniform, and military family members.
Horsemanship Day Camp is a great opportunity for kids (ages 8+) attending our Summer R&R program to learn more about horses. Our Wranglers teach aspiring equestrians basic horse anatomy, the essentials of riding equipment, techniques for tacking and grooming a horse, walking and trotting instructions for beginners, and then they’ll all hit the trails to gain real-world experience! Daily devotionals throughout the experience will focus on the lessons we can learn from one of God’s most majestic creatures.
A five-day traditional summer camp program with age-specific programs for rising 2nd-8th graders, Camp Caleb brings military youth into an authentic personal relationship with Jesus Christ, to strengthen their own family and peer relationships, and to prepare them for standing for Jesus Christ as teenagers.
A six-day program for rising 9th graders through recent high school graduates, Allegheny Outback! challenges teens to develop their very own personal knowledge of God by modeling Christ in real-life situations with plenty of adventure along the way. For this particular week of the summer, however, we are instead offering the new Allegheny Outback! Advanced program, available only to rising juniors and seniors who have previously experienced Allegheny Outback!. This new Allegheny Outback! Advanced adventure provides the perfect challenge to develop teens’ leadership skills through a variety of opportunities with their fellow campers.
