WCG: Ordinations and Myrtle Beach

In the July-August edition of Together (Worldwide Church of God News) are the following items:

 Harvest Conference in Myrtle Beach Oct. 4-7

The Harvest Church in Marion and Myrtle Beach, SC, will again sponsor a conference titled “Gathering in the Harvest for Jesus.” The conference will be held Oct. 4-7 at the Springmaid Convention Center.

Paul David Kurts will speak on Thursday evening; Charles Young will speak on Friday evening. On Saturday, Dan Rogers will speak in the morning, and in the afternoon seminars will be offered on marriage, finances, and youth. Howard Blakeney and Keith Brittain will conclude on Sunday.

Registration is $35 for an individual or $80 for a family…

Both ICG and LCG are having Feast of Tabenacles’ Sites in Myrtle Beach in 2007. It seems a little odd that WCG has decided to begin a conference there on a day they no longer recognize–the Last Great Day (see the article Is There “An Annual Worship Calendar” In the Bible?).

Under ordinations, it is interesting to notice that apparently (based upon my assessment of the first names) five of the eleven ordinations are for women.  This seems consistent with WCG’s recent changes in this area.  An article of possible interest may include Women and the New Testament Church.
