“Ah LORD GOD! Behold, thou hast made the heaven and the earth by thy great power and stretched out arm, and there is nothing too hard for thee:” (Jeremiah 32:17) This is one of my most favorite verses in GOD’s Holy word, and it is a verse that I cling to for confirmation of GOD’s omnipotence, omnipresence, and omniscience. Now even more than ever, I find myself praying this verse to ask our LORD and SAVIOR to sustain us through these trying times.
Regardless of your thoughts on our current situation with COVID-19, we are all being affected by the situation, and we must rely on GOD to deliver us as he did so many times in the Old Testament with HIS people when they faced dire circumstances.
The W. W. Mann Center is feeling the strain of this current situation, as we have not had any users here since the restrictions that are in place have been implemented. We have already had our largest summer camp cancel their reservation, and just last week it was decided in the best interest of health and safety that our own Camp “I Am” will be canceled for this summer. We are also receiving calls canceling family reunions and other activities.
It is, at this time, that I am making an impassioned plea to all of our churches to come to our aid with financial assistance that will sustain us through his crisis. With no user fees coming in, we are looking to our churches for assistance.
I am totally confident that GOD will deliver us from this situation, and I am asking that you all, too, will come to our aid.
Please continue to lift the Mann Center up in your prayers as we need them each and every day!!
God bless each and every one of you.
Yours in Christ,
Mike Sparks, Director
Duane Davis, Maintenance Supervisor
Nestled in the woods on the outskirts of Brooklet, Georgia on approximately 75 acres, you will find the W. W. Mann Retreat and Conference Center. As a ministry of the Ogeechee River Baptist Association, the Mann Center provides a serene, isolated and worshipful atmosphere for all that come. Whether you just want to get away for a day picnic, a weekend getaway, or a longer stay, the Mann Center is the place for you.
The Mann Center has overnight cabins that sleep up to 25 people, a small dining hall/meeting room that will accommodate approximately 60 guests, a larger dining hall/meeting room that will seat approximately 170 people, a chapel that can hold approximately 100 worshipers, a lodge with private rooms, a gazebo, and an amphitheater.
The Mann Center also has 2 fishing ponds (no fishing license required), a creek for fishing, and a swimming pond. Other recreational options include: a full size basketball court, regulation volleyball court, horse shoe pits, an athletic field, and a large playground.
We like to think that the Mann Center is a “little piece of heaven” where folks can get away from the “hustle and bustle” of everyday life and relax, meditate, pray, or just “recoup” from the stress and strain of our fast-paced society.
The Mann Center rents our facilities to church groups, school groups, private citizens, and others as long as they adhere to our policy of letting your actions glorify God.
We hope all who seek a place for their activities would consider choosing the W. W. Mann Retreat and Conference Center. Contact us at: 912-842-2460, 912-531-2946 or firstname.lastname@example.org .
