Camps accredited by American Camp Association
The American Camp Association (ACA) has announced the official renewal of the accreditation for West Ohio's Camp Widewater in Liberty Center. The inspection process takes place every three years and was held while summer camp was in session last July. Camps awarded with the ACA accreditation have met very high standards in health, safety and risk management in the operation and programming of the camp. Congratulations to Widewater Camp Director Eric Witte, a 20 year veteran in camping leadership, and his staff team. West Ohio's two other camps, Camp Otterbein and Camp Wesley, are accredited as well. For information on camps or retreats please visit the website at or email

A Mark Known the World Over
Cross And Flame
Suppose you are vacationing far from home. You drive around, looking for a church in which to worship Sunday morning. Suddenly you see a familiar sight: a Cross and Flame insignia on a sign, pointing you to the nearest United Methodist Church. You've just proved how symbols and pictures provide instant recognition, meaning and a sense of belonging.
