Brown County, Indiana Pentecost Weekend

May 26, 2023 - 12:00am EDT to May 28, 2023 - 11:55pm EDT

Called the “Little Smokies” because of its resemblance to the Great Smoky Mountains, Brown County State Park and the Abe Martin Lodge in beautiful southern Indiana will host Sabbath and Pentecost services Memorial Day Weekend (May 26-28). The weekend, following a tradition of worship, fellowship and song, will feature the popular annual Concert for God on Saturday evening, followed by a hymn sing. The park’s rustic Abe Martin Lodge offers accommodations that include motel rooms, cabins, dining and conference facilities (including the Melodeon Room, where services will again take place) and an indoor water park. A traditional Sabbath afternoon potluck will take place on May 27 at the Upper Shelter (details to follow), and a pre-paid option for Pentecost lunch (between services) will again be available.

Because of the Memorial Day Weekend, holiday rates are slightly higher, but discounted rates for the United Church of God are available for a group block of 216 rooms and cabins, ranging from $88.48 (small rustic cabin room) to $223.99 (family cabin with full kitchen), plus tax. This year the UCG block includes the new cabin suites ($223.99). A full complement of rooms with queen and king beds (some including patio access) to family cabins (sleep eight) are available. Rooms and cabins can be viewed online at:  https://bit.ly/2023BrownCoutyUCGinfo 

Note: the park extended the group discount to include options of arriving Thursday, May 25 through Sunday evening May 28.

If you would like to participate in the Concert for God, please contact Sam Howie at tigersh13@yahoo.com or Tim Howie at howietim@hotmail.com

Because of the holiday weekend, it is recommended that you call to make reservations: 877-563-4371 and use group code 0526UG (zero-five-two-six-U-G). The park is popular during Memorial Day weekend, so the group rate will end and rooms released to the public Monday, April 24.

Additional details of speakers and the weekend schedule will be forthcoming.
