Church Campout


  • Fort Parker - State Park 194 Park Road Mexia, TX (map)

It's that time again… The Annual Church Campout! ⛺ ⛺ ⛺

If you haven’t been before, that means: dutch oven cookin’, fresh cinnamon rolls, campfire singing, music, potlucks, hiking, dominoes, church family devotions, fishing, hammocking, multi-generational 4-Square, soccer, biking, maybe even swimming/boating! (you name it we got it!)

This year's location is:

FORT PARKER STATE PARK OCT. 18-20 (Thurs-Sat)

The campground is booked up now, but there are still options! If you have a tent there will be plenty of room for you to pitch your tent on the sites we already have reserved. If you have made a reservation you cannot keep, please let us know, and you may be able to sell it to someone who did not get a reservation in time!

There are also hotels nearby in Mexia and Groesbeck where some of our folks stay. (Mexia is about

12 min away. Quality Inn in Groesbeck is about 6 min away)

Here is what to expect! What to bring! What to know!

  • Folks will be arriving and setting up camp on Thursday. We often end up gathering around a campfire that night to sing, fellowship, & have devotions.

  • Friday & Saturday mornings 8:30am POTLUCK BREAKFAST!

  • Friday night 5:30pm POTLUCK SUPPER! followed by campfire fellowship followed by more games & more fun :)

  • BRING: Camp chairs, bring all your own eating utensils, plates, cups, bowls, drinks, food, bikes, flashlights, jackets, blankets, games, musical instruments, hammocks!

Directions: about 1:45 minutes from church. south. near Mexia,TX

Please come out for the day and for evening potluck on Friday 20th, if you can't stay!

(last year we had about 70 come out for the day or to camp!)

When you arrive we will be in the electric loop/shelter loop. Look for big white or red vans!
