All of God's People Welcome
Campground Memorial Cemetery
A cemetery is located on the grounds of the Gospel of the Kingdom Campground. Brothers and sisters who worked and labored on the campground over the years since it was established in 1935 are buried there, as well as other dear saints of the Body of Christ.
If you have a loved one buried on the campground cemetery, or if you were appointed to represent the family of the deceased in matters concerning the grave site, it is important to keep your contact information current. Please contact Brenda Fields with changes of address, phone number and/or representation.
Additionally, for your convenience, donations may be made online to the campground for maintenance of the cemetery grounds. Please visit our donations page for more information about how you can donate.
