New Bern, NC

Join us for God’s Feast of Tabernacles and the Last Great Day 2023, in New Bern, North Carolina! This beautiful, historic city is located on the North Carolina coast at the confluence of the Neuse and Trent rivers, was settled in 1710 by Swiss and German immigrants, and was named after “Bern,” Switzerland. New Bern is the second-oldest European settled colonial town in North Carolina, and in addition to its wonderful history, great dining, beautiful riverfront views, and access to the Atlantic Ocean, historic New Bern is very pedestrian-friendly, and Feast-goers always greatly enjoy the ability to easily walk around, explore, and fellowship with each other in the historic downtown before or after Church services.   
New Bern first served as the colonial capital and then as the state capital until 1792, at which time the capital was relocated to Raleigh. You will find museums, beautiful parks, water access, ample dining options, fun tourist shops, a southern charm atmosphere, and a very welcoming local community. A famous local attraction and one of the optional excursions is the historic Tryon Palace Governor’s mansion, which served as the original state capital building. The Tryon Palace grounds now include a large state history museum, about 16 acres of gardens, and several other historic buildings.   
New Bern is also the birthplace of both the first chief justice of the state Supreme Court and the composer of the North Carolina state song. The state’s first public school was opened in New Bern. The city is home to the New Bern Fireman’s Museum, honoring the oldest chartered fire department in North Carolina. It is the birthplace of Pepsi-Cola and is also the location of the state’s first printing press. Some additional possible excursions are the North Carolina Aquarium in Pine Knoll, an afternoon at Fort Macon State Park beach, and a short 20-minute ferry ride to see the wild horses on beautiful Shackleford Island.    
Inspired by the city’s “Bern,” Switzerland heritage, downtown New Bern is also home to more than 50 decorated bear statues. But most importantly, New Bern is one of the many locations where God has again placed His name this year. From all of us who will be serving at God’s Feast of Tabernacles in New Bern, we extend our warm welcome, and we hope to see you there!
