More Feast of Tabernacles Sites 2000

These sites are in addition to those listed in the Mar/Apr issue on page 16. Feast sites listed in this article, as far as we know, all welcome non-aligned Sabbatarians. Corporate church organization’s Feasts may be located by contacting their headquarters: The United Church of God-IA at 513-576-9796, the Living Church of God at 619-613-7970; the CGI at 903-825-2525, the Church of God, a Christian Fellowship at 877-846-2072.

Please let Feast sponsors know now where you are planning to attend! It is very difficult to plan a Feast when the number of people attending is unknown. Time and money are wasted if attendance estimates are too high. Facilities become too crowded if estimates are too low. If you are not sure yet, it is better to notify the site you are most likely to attend, then change your mind later if necessary.

• Unless otherwise noted, all sites use the Hebrew calendar—the evening of Friday, Oct. 13th through Saturday the 21st.
• We are happy to print information on other Feast sites that welcome all brethren regardless of organizational affiliation.
• Please send information on such sites to Servants’ News (contact info page).
An updated list of feast sites is available at Or write: Olive Branches, PO Box 1293, Fairview, TN 37062.

Roanoke, Virginia

Nestled in the Blue Ridge Mountains on the shores of the most beautiful lake in the east, we three are sponsoring a feast again this fall at Bernard's Landing. Last year was such a wonderful experience, we know it should be repeated.

“But the hour is coming and now is, when true worshippers will worship the father in spirit and truth.” (John 4:23) If you believe in “contending for the faith once delivered to the saints” (Jude-3), come join us for a great Feast.
