Coming Up: Bookmarking Party & CedarS Hymn Sing

Sunday, March 22nd, 2020

On Sunday, March 22nd, there will be two CedarS 365 activities!

Get out your chalk and markers! Join us at 2:00-2:30 p.m. Central for a Bookmarking Party with Christie Hanzlik, CS, via Facebook Live!


Then, at 7:00-7:30 p.m. Central, we’ll be holding a CedarS Hymn Sing over Zoom. Instructions for joining are below:

Format: The Hymn Sing will be hosted by CedarS counselor, Stephen Hanlin, and his family. Like at camp, we’ll take requests for seven hymns, followed by the Doxology, and finally the CedarS song, led by Warren.


  • Invite your friends! All are welcome.
  • Bring a hymnal or go to Concord online to look up hymns. They offer a 30-day free trial account.
  • Download and test Zoom at zoom.us. It’s free.
  • Come ready to sing, experience healing, and see friends across the globe.


Zoom Grid View: We’ll be using a Zoom meeting interface so that people can see one another on the screen, displayed in Brady Bunch grid format, united from around the world. (Of course, you’ll have the option to display your video or join by audio only.)  FYI, the grid view option is available only by computer and not through a mobile device.

A new aerial view of CedarS new “Mediterranean Skea” in Bible Lands Park

Monday, July 11th, 2011

To help bring the Bible to life with a to-scale Bible Lands Park, CedarS now has a Joppa on the coast of our new “Mediterranean Skea” (see the aerial view).  Joppa has a carved granite marker as does nearby Lydda where Peter was when he was summoned to raise Tabitha from the dead. See citation B-20, Acts 9:36-41, in the July 17, 2011 Christian Science Bible Lesson on Life.]

The Pledge of the CedarS Torchbearers

Friday, July 8th, 2011

I,                                                                   ,

as a CedarS Torchbearer, promise:

to stand for what is right even though it may not be the popular thing to do;

to strive to listen  for God and obey and use His laws in all my thoughts and actions;

to speak and act in a straightforward and Christ-like manner, without hypocrisy or malice, for this is the way of the CedarS Camps.
