Several of the Churches of God over the last 15 years or so have tried their best to rope members into spending money on "Weekends" tied into various holy days. These fun weekends are supposed to unite the true body of believers. The next one coming up is Pentecost, which for normal Christians falls on May 20th. But, the Church of God has to be different, so it has to have it on another day or two. The Church of God can't figure out which one is actually right. And, this does not even include the crazy dates James Malm and Bob Thiel claim is right!
This is just indicative of the sad state of affairs that the COG is now in. For a church that claims to be restored first century Christianity and that it is the one and only TRUE church, it demonstrates that it is anything but.
The Pentecost Festival Weekend in 2018 will be held over 3 different weekends (owing to calendar differences): May 19-20, May 26-27, June 23-24.
On the weekend of May 18-20:
The Church of God International in Ontario, Canada, would like to welcome you to its first ever Pentecost Super Sabbath Weekend.
Everyone is invited to attend Pentecost Weekend with the Intercontinental Church of God at its usual site: Kentucky Dam Village State Resort Park, Land Between the Lakes.
The United Church of God has a new venue for 2018: “the beautiful Potawatomi Inn Resort in Pokagon State Park on Lake James, which is right off of I-69 in northeast Indiana. This resort is larger than the state park facilities in Brown County and McCormick’s Creek, with a full restaurant and a café and community gathering rooms for fellowship.” Church of God News
