Creekside 2018: Dr. Jerry Goff and SGNScoops honor Arthur Rice with Lifetime Achievement Award

THE CREEKSIDE DIARIES – Volume Two, Monday, October 29, 2018, by Kristen Stanton.

Another fantastic day here at Creekside is in the books!  At 9:00 a.m. artists began pouring in the Smoky Mountain Convention Center for booth set up.   The buzz was still in the air as these artists were prayed up and ready to do ministry throughout the week.

The needs that they have are important.  The hurt that they are feeling is important. And THAT is why we sing — to tell them that we may not have all the answers, but we know a God who does.

The message resonated with me. I don’t know if anyone else noticed it or not, but God has a way of arranging a program to do the work He has for that day.   The Epps Family sang a song tonight called God Still Answers Prayer — a powerful message for the masses — and a message that the Creekside family truly believes. We saw that same message carry forward into Midnight Prayer where we heard how prayer has changed lives.

Creekside 2018 Revival Choir9The singing was phenomenal –from the spotlight on the Smoky Mountain artists all the way through the Red Back Hymnal sing.   But the power of God showed up through that one simple word – PRAY. God hears our prayers and He WILL answer us. God has started a work here at Creekside.  

And God WILL finish it.

Creekside Kickoff Concert 2018

Creekside Kickoff Concert 2018

Creekside Diaries, volume one: Sunday, October 28, 2018

By Kristen Stanton

The air is buzzing with excitement here in Pigeon Forge, Tennessee. Cars and buses are pulling into the Smoky Mountain Convention Center ready for a big week here at the Creekside Gospel Music Convention. 

Creekside Kickoff Concert 2018People are greeting each other with hugs or shouts from across the parking lot and it’s clear that “We Are Family” is more than just a slogan – it’s a feeling.  

Creekside Kickoff Concert 2018Now in its seventh year, this event has taken on an identity different from anything else in the industry.    

Packed full of singing and special events, this year kicked off with a bang with Quartet Night. The Pine Ridge Boys, The Chordsmen, and Common Bond Quartet sang to a standing room only audience that left the crowd excited for the Monday night concert. The capacity crowd filed in when the doors opened at 6:30 p.m. and stayed until the last note was sung.

Arthur Rice to be honored by Dr. Jerry Goff at Creekside 2018The spark is in the air – and if you’re here, you can feel it. The pastor at church this morning reminded us that God’s presence changes everything. The three quartets that sang tonight certainly ushered in the presence of God.

Is revival starting?  Maybe. I can’t wait to find out!

If fans are making plans to travel to Pigeon Forge for the first time, they should take note of this comment by Rick Brock of Mercy Rain: “2017 was my first Creekside appearance.  It was at the start of the day and artists and people were just starting to come into the booth and concert area. The gentlemen who was behind the curtain separating the two aisles was playing his guitar and singing a song to pass the time.  I started to join singing harmony with him with the curtain still closed. Soon I pulled back the curtain so that we could see each other and introduce ourselves. I had never really got to meet him before this time.

Mercy Rain

Mercy Rain

Truthfully, our harmony was sounding really good. We would ask each other, do you know this song or do you know that song? If he did, he would play it on his guitar and we would both start to sing. Later, we had other artists from other nearby booths come over and join in. We were so enjoying ourselves that we failed to notice that several people had stopped by our booth to listen. They were so enjoying that mini impromptu concert where we were just enjoying singing and fellowshipping with one another. That set the tone for me for Creekside and I look forward to this coming year. That is what makes Creekside family – with a little front porch singing.”

Sheila Blackwell says, “Looking back to attending the first year of Creekside (2012) , I was so impressed with everyone involved that I too wanted to help it be an ongoing and successful event.  I talked with Rob Patz and the next year I became a volunteer. Every year since, the event has grown. So has the need for volunteers, thus I have coordinated a team to help annually. Blessings abound at this event; groups and people come and go, and the singing gets better and better. It is a blessing to know that  people are getting saved during the services. That’s why we do what we do. Hope to see everyone again this year.”

Creekside is offering a VIP bracelet for only $25 for the week. This will provide entry into the preferred seating at each event, includes a Creekside gift bag each night, as well as other select surprise events. VIP bracelet can be ordered by calling Rob Patz at 360-933-0741.
