O.A.K. Foundation aka Order of Ancient Knowledge
Age Range/Type: Adult
Located in: Bethel Springs, Tennessee
Key Contact: Debra Witdove Smith
Spiritual Path: Pagan/Wiccan/All
Status: Established Group
Community Support: Legal Clergy...
Group Overview: Order of Ancient Knowledge & Pagan Element
First started in Oklahoma now extended to Tn.
Our Creed : to preserve, protect and promote the Old Ways.
We practice and promote recycling, and all ways to help save and preserve Mother Earth.
Right now the Foundation is only practicing in the virtual world.
We have our IRS statement showing we are a legal entity known as a Church, which makes us tax-exempt. We are not incorporated nor do we intend to do so as we follow the old ways of separation from state activities. It is not a requirement of law to be incorporated or obtain a tax-exempt certificate to be recognized as a Legal Entity-Church.
Plans for the physical location include: We are looking for property, (possibly investors) and of course members to build.a Ritual Building (church/temple) , a retreat area, a library, a building for distribution of food, clothing and household goods to all those in need, a referral service for seniors, home-school information and supplies, and animal care information & referrals.
We now have a catalog (On-line Store) selling herbs, oils, incense, ritual items and such to support our Foundation and its members.
New Members are being accepted at our website only, then to be interviewed based on interest & dedication to community when that becomes a reality.
We will provide all basic services, ex: handfastings, counseling, blessing, banishing's, courses, etc.
The Foundation is supported by donations and our own retail endeavors-we accept nor ask for any funds from any government agency.
Right now our services are limited to our circle and our Virtual Foundation (Web Site) -till we get a proper land site.
Any donations made material or monetary are tax-deductible. You will get a receipt upon request.
We are not able to do open gatherings at this time. All activities open to new memberships are our virtual world only at this time.
We have made great progress in our Virtual Foundation-but it still has a long way to go.
I am proud to say we held our first fund raiser for a local family for Christmas-2008 and was a great success!!
We have Permanent Charities on site-these were introduced Jan 2009.These are being revised for the relaunch of the new site in 2013!!!
Also you can view our Foundation information on Site.
All funds raised on site (s) goes to the Foundation and its Charities.
Yes we are still looking for land to be donated to us-our website is growing nicely an is incorporating many social activity's.
Our physical group remains closed. But the site is open to all-including the younger set-aged 13-17 with permission.
Just Opened..We now have a courses script on site..it is open to all and teachers are welcome to run their courses for free (or a small donation if charging) . Check it out and contact me if you wish to teach...
The original site OrderofAncientknowledge is being moved and relaunched Jan 2013 we have a Pagan Store running now till the move find it here.. http://oakzemporium.1freecart.com/ .
To see the fruition of this Pagan Community we need to get more information-we know the legalities-its finding land reasonable and the building/development that takes time. Anyone who has ideas, suggestion or wishes to donate in some way please contact.
We welcome our new Elder Darkside to our foundation to the position of High Priest. He is able to do all Ceremonial & Ritual Proceedings.
He has had his own circle in Georgia (large organization) for 15 years. His expertise is in Practical Magick, Tarot, Divining and Chanting & Spell Craft.
We Welcome his additional abilities to our Circle.
