    • Auditorium Central to Brush Creek is a large Auditorium, our House of Worship, which seats 250 people and is fully air-conditioned. New, theater-type seats have recently been installed with disability access.  A large, raised platform is at one end of the room with speaker’s podium, organ and piano. In addition a new, state-of-the-art sound system has also been installed with sound and A/V console located in the rear of the room. Ceiling fans, paneled walls, a new terrazzo-type floor and recessed lighting add to the beauty and dignity of the room. Wi-Fi internet access can also be purchased during your stay.
    • Cabins Brush Creek Campgrounds has over 60 cabins available. Some of these date back to the 1930’s and 40’s, but most have been modernized or replaced, and the vast majority are fully air-conditioned. The cabins are approximately 14 by 16 feet and none have running water or cooking facilities. However, large, modern shower and bath facilities are located close to the cabins. The cabins are maintained by families in the church and they take great pride in keeping them up-to-date.
