A new fellowship hall is scheduled to be ready for use when King of Kings Camp Meeting 2004 is held July 9-17 at the King of Kings Campground, located between Green Forest and Denver near the old Center Point community.

Daytime services will be held at 10 a.m. July 10-17, and gospel singing will get underway each night at 6 p.m., with worship following at 7 p.m.

According to Wendell Jones, a temporary kitchen will be operational in the 50- by 80-foot hall, and a permanent kitchen should be in place later this year. Along with providing kitchen facilites during the camp's annual summer meeting, the facility will serve as a site for gospel sings and other events when weather is cold.

A tentative schedule of night speakers for the July meeting includes evangelist Dereck Stennett, of West Fork, on July 9; Russellville Assembly of God Pastor Roy Chisum on July 10; evangelist Allen Smith on July 11; Fallingwater Church Pastor Lester Chisum on July 12; Capps Full Gospel Church Pastor Eddie Reed on July 13; evangelist Arlis Burks on July 14; Arvin Adams and Lighthouse Messengers on July 15; Hector Assembly of God Pastor Dean Caldwell on July 16; and evangelist Mark Ragsdale on July 17.

Free camper hook-ups and water and electric are available at the campgrounds.

For most of Carroll County, persons can get to the campgrounds by taking U.S. Highway 62 to Green Forest, turn north on Highway 311 and go five miles to Farewell, turn right, then left on County Road 814 (Denver Road), drive 2.5 miles to County Road 808, turn right and drive two miles. The campground will be on the left.
