Payne Camp Meeting 2000

The unified theme of the Church of God in Ohio for the next four years is
"Celebrating the Church."  Each year will bring to us a new sub-theme and the logo that you see above, with "Jesus" at the top, will rotate to display the theme for the current year. The theme for 2000 is "Celebrating Jesus" and the verse for this theme is John 12:32, which says, "And I, if I be lifted up from the earth, will draw all men unto me."
