The old tabernacle was constructed during the depressions of the 1930’s to provide seating for huge crowds during summer revival services. Each summer the tabernacle provided space for services until the mid-1950’s when services were discontinued. In the early 1980’s, maintenance was performed on the tabernacle and annual revival services were started again.
This year’s revival will begin at 7 p.m. each night on Sept. 12, 13 and 14. The speaker on Sept. 12 will be Sam Groves with Lucy Raney providing the music. Mt. Vernon minister Rev. Jeffrey Kanode will deliver the message on Sept. 13 with Tim McNair providing the music. Minister and Appalachian historian John Wyatt will speak on Sept. 14 with Shannon Vance providing the inspiring music.
Join the congregation of Mt. Vernon for the service of God. Come expecting to be blessed.
