Passover/Feast of Unleavened Bread
APRIL 8 THRU 15, 2020
BECAUSE OF THE CORONAVIRUS SCARE, CAMP CHILHOWEE HAS CLOSED THEIR CAMP THIS YEAR AND IS UNAVAILABLE!
Therefore we have the opportunity to enjoy the Passover and Feast of Unleavened Bread with a truly old fashioned "campmeeting" setting in Big Ridge State Park, a few miles north of Knoxville, Tennessee in the mountains.
Deut 16:16 "three times a year all your males shall appear before the LORD your God in the place which He chooses: at the Feast of Unleavened Bread, at the Feast of Weeks, and at the Feast of Tabernacles; and they shall not appear before the LORD empty-handed." This year we have an opportunity to observe the entire Passover / Feast of Unleavened Bread, just like we observe the entire Feast of Tabernacles!
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.
Observing God's holy days here is a spiritual experience. We wake in the morning and walk to the lodge. 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. To get there, you drive to the park on a beautiful road with mountain views. In the park there is a private road that goes from the lake to the group camp. There is a lodge with a large meeting and dining room, it has a "mess hall" kitchen with restaurant type stoves and a walk-in cooler. Surrounding this are individual bunk houses in a picturesque mountain setting.
Inside the large meeting room of the lodge is a huge stone fireplace where we can gather around a blazing fire for services, dining, singing songs, Bible study and fellowship into the night! Those of you who decide to keep the Feast in East Tennessee will experience a closeness like you never have in the past. We will eat, study, play and pray together (bring your food so you can cook your meals in the lodge kitchen). Friendships will be formed that will last into the Kingdom.
We have reserved the entire group camp for nine days. We will arrive on Tuesday April 7th and leave Thursday April 16th. The camp includes the lodge and 18 bunk houses for sleeping That are simple rustic structures that sleep six to eight people each. They surround two bathhouses with hot showers and toilet facilities. The cost for the bunkhouses is a offering of $200 for the entire 9 days. Contact us for a reservation.
