Comstock Park, Michigan
Spring Feast week 2017
Little Pine Island Camp
Passover/Feast of Unleavened Bread celebration - April 10-19, 2017
From Todd Palmer:
Dena and I are happy to announce that we are sponsoring a
of Unleavened Bread site at Little Pine Island Camp, in Comstock Park
just 7.5 miles north of Grand Rapids, Michigan.
Dena and I keep the Abib calendar. We know that there is a potential 2 day difference between the Abib (Abib barley/sighted new moon from Jerusalem Calendar) and the CRC (Calculated Rabbinic Calendar) this year. We will plan to accommodate both (Abib, CRC).
- April 10th - Passover
- April 11th-17th - Feast of Unleavened Bread
Abib (date will be confirmed in the beginning of April by the sighted moon from Israel)
- April 12th - Passover
- April 13th-19th - Feast of Unleavened Bread
Passover Service Note: Dena and I will be keeping the Passover service on April 12th. If you are planning to keep Passover on site (whether Sunday night April 9th or Monday night April 10th) , please contact us so that we can make sure to facilitate your needs.
Because of the differences in understanding of how and when to keep the Passover, we are desirous to be respectful of each person's understanding. We believe that the focus should be on Messiah and what He has done and is doing for us. While our family will not be participating in the earlier service (9th or 10th), we will be there to serve you to ensure that the evening's focus is where it should be - on our Messiah and His Father.
Location of Services
We plan on holding services each day at 10:30am in the Little Pine Lodge. (we will have a schedule of activites for the feast soon)

Little Pine Lodge
- Little Pine Island's flagship residence is as beautiful inside as it is on the outside. With 16 individual guest rooms, separate men's and women's facilities, dining and exquisite meeting room, the "Lodge" is perfect for adult overnights or day seminars. If comfort and convenience are key, you can have both in this serene setting.
- While there is a kitchen at the Little Pine Lodge, it will be utilized for Feast food storage, prep and serving. We ask that you store personal food in your rooms. Please bring a cooler to use in your room for items that need to be kept cold. You will have access to utilize the kitchen throughout the Feast, but personal use will be secondary to Feast prep and use.
- We will have a continental style breakfast each day at the lodge April 10th-19th (7-9:30am)
- We will share dinners together at 6pm each evening April 13th-19th
