Lake Murray

For the Feast of Tabernacles, the Congregation of YHWH does its best to obtain a spot each year in an area that is big enough to support the amount of congregates that come to observe with us. We are thankful to yet again have Group Camp #1 at Lake Murray State Park in Oklahoma this year.  

 

The Feast of Tabernacles, Succoth, will be observed from sunset on Tuesday, October 3rd, 2017 to sunset on Wednesday, October 11th, 2017. Please make the necessary arrangements with your work or school if you plan on attending. Dennis Martin has excuse forms available if need be. See the schedule here.
