Pentecost Location

Due to a conflict with the facility in Cave City for Pentecost, we have been required to move Pentecost Holy Day Services to a new location.


On June 9th, we will have the opportunity for combined services at the Holiday Inn University Plaza in Bowling Green, KY (1021 Wilkinson Trace, Bowling Green, KY 42103). This is a very nice facility and it will be a treat for us to meet here for the Holy Day.

The Holiday Inn is offering a discounted room rate for anyone wishing to stay over the night before. The rate will be $115 (plus tax) and is valid for Saturday night, June 8th. To make reservations, please call 270-745-0088 and mention block code CH4, or you can book online with the following link: Church of God. Because of hotel rules, you will not be able to eat lunch in the meeting room or general areas of the hotel. The hotel does have a restaurant on site, and there are also several restaurants in the vicinity ranging from fast food to steak houses.

Services will be held at 10:00 AM and 2:00 PM CDT. If you have any questions, please contact Mr. Willoughby.
