Truth On The Web Ministries welcomes you to join us in rejoicing before our Father and His Anointed at scenic Shawnee State Park Lodge and Conference Center in West Portsmouth, Ohio for this year's observance of the Feast of Tabernacles.  Located in the Appalachian foothills near the banks of the Ohio River, 1,095-acre Shawnee State Park is nestled in the 63,000-acre Shawnee State Forest. Once the hunting grounds of the Shawnee Indians, the region is one of the most picturesque in the state, featuring erosion-carved valleys and wooded hills. The rugged beauty of the area has earned it the nickname "The Little Smokies." The hardwood forest is host to a variety of flora and fauna. Wildflowers are abundant including several rare types of orchids such as the tiny whorled pogonia and the showy orchis. Forest wildlife includes white-tailed deer, wild turkey, raccoon, various songbirds and rare sightings of bobcat and black bear. Members of the Body of Christ are expected from various locations across the country. All are welcome - we shall be as one.

Behold, how good and how pleasant it is for brethren to dwell together in unity! (Psalms 133:1)


What is the Feast of Tabernacles?  It is one of the festivals of the Bible instituted by the Creator (Leviticus 23) and observed by the Messiah (John 7). You can read more about it here:  The Feast of Tabernacles

And there will be plenty of opportunity for fellowship with all-day access to the Feast Hall , Daily Group Bring-Something-To-Share Picnics at the Fire-Pit on Cottage Row, games and more.
