Telling the Story to the Next Generation

IS Celebration HRS at GlennThe Glenn Tabernacle dates from the 1920’s and is rich in Indian Springs legacy that is often shared with our younger campers. It has been a place where many small hearts have made big commitments.

When possible, our children have the opportunity to hear the history of Indian Springs. Helen Rhea Stumbo, great-granddaughter of one of the founders (Rev. George Mathews), tells the story of how campmeeting began.  Helen Rhea is featured at above, dressed as Mrs. Annie Mathews, in her story-telling mode! She wants the children to understand that many people have worked hard over a hundred and thirty plus years so that they can learn about Jesus today.
