HERSEY — Around 100 people gathered in the tabernacle at Albright Campground Sunday for a community worship service during the Great American Crossroads Celebration.

Barb and Chuck Schneider led the group in classic hymns on guitar and banjo and Reed City United Methodist Church Pastor Kathy Cadarette preached.

After the service at the camp Sunday, event goers enjoyed a potluck lunch. Organizers hope to continue the event annually during the Crossroads Celebration and encourage partnership from additional churches.

Albright Campground is a United Methodist camp that was first used in 1897 for Christian revival services. Today, the camp maintains a Christian, family focus, and features a prayer-meditation garden and a meditation fire bowl along with more than 1.5 miles of shaded walkways.
