Pentecost 2023

May 27 - 28, 2023

This year we have the opportunity to enjoy Pentecost in beautiful Big Ridge State Park, a few miles north of Knoxville, Tennessee in the mountains.

This beautiful 3,687 acre park is located near Norris Lake and the Appalachian Trail, only 12 miles from I-75 and is centrally located within a days drive from over 50% of the population of the United States. Cabins and camping spaces are available in a quiet wooded setting. Families and individuals will find Big Ridge State Park an ideal and beautiful wooded setting in which to observe God's Festival in the true spirit of separation from the world and closeness of Christian fellowship.

We have rented Pavilion #4 for Sabbath and Pentecost services. We will meet at 12:00pm both days and begin with a pot luck. Many of us have rented cabins and camp sites so let us know when you get there and we will all get together.

Observing God's holy days here is a spiritual experience. The deer are in the fields and the birds are singing in the trees. To spend God's holy days in the mountains fellowshipping with other believers makes for an experience you do not want to miss.

There are playgrounds for children, paddleboats and canoes on the lake, hiking trails for all ages, a baseball diamond, a volleyball court and fishing areas right within the campground. there is also areas for campfires and singing all in a picturesque mountain setting.

The park rents 56 campsites with water and electric hookups, picnic tables and grills. There are also 19 cabins that sleep six people with two double beds and a hide-a-bed sofa. They have fireplaces, screened- in porches and are equipped for light housekeeping. All linens and cooking and dining utensils are furnished.
