As we continue to navigate the effects of COVID-19 in our world in general, and Sandy Cove in specific, I am sorry to say that we will not be holding Classic Bible Conference Weekend on July 10 – 12 this year.
There are a number of factors that lead to this. Even as some restrictions are beginning to ease, we anticipate distancing requirements to remain in place, congregational singing to be off-limits, and other constraints that would affect the experience. More importantly, the evidence points to this sickness impacting people of a “Classic” demographic the most significantly, and we don’t want to encourage you to do something that would ultimately be harmful.
Sandy Cove is reopening in June on a limited basis, meaning that it will be more like a hotel with take-out food, instead of having the full programs we know and love. Our hope is that we will be able to transition back to those in the fall, but time will tell and we will have to make wise choices based on the information we have then. You can read everything we’re doing to protect everyone’s health and safety by clicking here.
Classic Weekend in 2021 (July 9-11) will mark the 75th anniversary of Sandy Cove – so many years of ministry on this beautiful property, and the reminder that Jesus Never Fails! We’d love to have you join us for that, and we’d be happy to move your reservation forward to that date.
Or, you might like to nudge your reservation forward to this fall, for one of our events for Seniors in September or October.
Besides carrying your reservation forward as a credit, you might consider donating instead. You can well imagine that being closed for 3 months has had a significant financial impact on Sandy Cove that we will be addressing for quite a while.
Finally, if none of those options work for you because you need your money more than we do, we can work on making that happen for you. Let us know what you would like to do with your reservation by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org or calling 800.234.2683 between 9 and 3, Monday - Friday. If we don’t hear from you, our reservations agents will reach out to confirm your choice.
We covet your prayers as we seek to continue to carry out the mission here at Sandy Cove for many more years.
A dictionary definition of the word "classic" helps describe a Sandy Cove Classic Bible Conference Weekend: something noteworthy of its kind and worth remembering; of enduring interest, quality, or style. By the grace of God, Sandy Cove has a long history of excellent Bible teaching, inspiring music, and heartwarming fellowship enjoyed amidst a unique part of God's breathtaking creation.

Thanks for incorporating so much use of the hymnals and the classic hymns that express so powerfully and concisely the foundations of our faith and the promises of God. Betty, Nottingham, MD
Our visits to Sandy Cove give us the opportunity to rest our minds, let God give us answers to questions that are often put on the back burner because of our busy lifestyle. Looking forward to our next visit. Sandra, Philadelphia, PA
